What are the potential benefits of working at a deals oriented firm (e.g., LEK, S& Deals, EY-P) as compared to the more traditional Big 4 MC type roles at the post-M level? Really struggling with putting in the hours for the deals centric role as I’m not 100% sure of the longer term payoff (besides short term slight bump in comp).
Interviewing with PWC digital risk solutions group - any pointers on what I can expect or any knowledge from people who are familiar with the DRS group. Input on company culture would also be great.
Interview tomorrow and recruiter encouraged me to have notes out to keep track of my stories (5 interviews, 1 hour each). Should I acknowledge and ask each interviewer if it's ok for me to have notes out? I feel like it'd feel weird for me to very obviously glance at my screen after a question every once in a while without acknowledging what's going on or asking permission.

Been working in PA for 2 years. No prior internships or business related work. Is it okay that my resume is just my associate role with like 15 bullet points? Not sure how to fill in the blank space, and it feels super lame to bring in non-relevant college jobs. Can I include ways I'm involved at the firm like mentorship and diversity initiatives?
I created a LoFi playlist on YouTube for consultants like us to vibe and work on (“Pls Fix Playlists”) It’s made me at least 2x more productive in editing my resume while searching for exit opps - so hope it does the same for ya’ll! Let me know what ya’ll fishes think: https://youtu.be/_PWxgWMtP5I
Anyone interviewing with BCG soon?

I have an internship ending next week and wanted to send two bosses thank you gifts but I don’t know of what to get. For reference one is male & his 30s with a young family and one is an adult female but her children are grown so something for the family is not as relevant. Ideas??

BCG people- how many people actually max out the full end year bonus? What's the more common expected end year % for associates? Thanks! I'm trying to weigh some options :)
Trying to exit into FAANG but know it may be a long shot involving a handful of rejections. Meanwhile got approached by a number of recruiters for a) smaller emerging startup <but need to shift geo>, and b) major banks for in-house strategy. I’ll proceed with interviews with a) since it will give me a flavour of tech recruiting, but should I even go through with interview process for b)? Thoughts? Fyi, have not interviewed in 4+ years!

Telling a recruiter you have other interviews and possible offers coming in order to make them speed up a possible/rejection? Good Idea?
Have an average book at best. Somehow an okay agency hired and then fired me. I acquired lots of credit card debt in a short amount of time. Now I don’t feel I’ll get a chance again. I really don’t want to work menial job again but that seems it will soon be my only option.
Looking for recommendations for solo trips where I could “work from home” and enjoy exploring after hours. I live in Colorado currently. Anyone doing this and may have recommendations? Thinking of flying to San Diego first.
Haven’t been getting any interview leads for months. Finally got one that would have been a good fit - thought I did really well for both rounds and just got the rejection email. Feeling defeated. Any advice / words of encouragement?

Has anyone ever considered doing Equity Research? If my interests are healthcare and life sciences, would ER with a focus on this industry lead to better exit opportunities than consulting in this space?
Is it worth it to go back to school for a better track to a FAANG company? The division I’m currently in seems like there are no good opportunities, and I have the funds available to finish my undergraduate full time (Canada). I applied to Amazon before for a highly senior position and made it to final interview so I think I would have a better chance for a new grad type role.
I’ve heard mixed things about Amazon creative departments. What makes it worth it? What kind of benefits do you guys receive?
From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
Hello from Sydney! We've been locked down for 5 weeks and due to be locked down for at least another four due to COVID. What did you do to stay sane when you were under stay at home orders? I'm exercising daily, trying to cook something new each week, practicing the piano. Just in a mental slump and feel so sluggish and demotivated, struggling to get excited about anything these days.
NJ fishes, could you please recommend places for medical for the greencard process? Thanks!
