Hi All, I was laid off back in April from an EHR software company working as a Consultant/BA. I’m looking to transition into working in consulting and was wondering if anyone wouldn’t mind checking out my resume for some feedback? I would appreciate it!
I have to give my notice today. How can I do graciously and respectfully? I’ve no hard feelings against the place, it’s just time for me to move on but I know I’ll leave them in a bind and I feel guilt over that. (I’ve also never left a job before, I’ve only been laid off. 😳)

Hello folks, wanted your input on EY UK Vs EY Ireland Vs Deloitte Middle east. (Finance transformation/GBS). All three offering a Manager role.
I was just offered a position with a non-profit organization. It’ll be a great transition from my current fellowship, and I’m super excited about the offer. Now here’s the catch, I haven’t accepted yet, but I am also applying for clerkship with a federal judge. If offered the judicial clerkship, I’d want to happily and eagerly accept. What is the professional way to accept the current offer and possibly leave if offered the clerkship? If it helps, this will be my second post-graduate position.
