As a first generation college graduate, first one to land a job in Corp. America, there’s so much that I wasn’t prepared for like 401k, investing, along with other things that increase your TC that aren’t bonuses or your base salary or how to diversify your income. I’m 25 and I feel like there is SO much I still don’t know. Any good book recommendations/youtubers/podcasts that helps navigate this?
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

Hello guys!! Can anyone of you please help me out? Or atleast some advice!! I'm a bit confused between Accenture and Bain & Company. I've offers from both of these firms with almost similar package. The role is not related to consulting but more into the technical+business side. If I go with Bain, will it be more fruitful wrt brand value and job switch in next few years? Also, how is the hike and compensation benefits for the employees at Bain? Any sort of help/advice is more than welcome!

For Mega Backdoor Roth contributions why do most articles/people focus on conversion to Roth IRA vs. Roth 401k? Been doing the former for years but starting to think latter might be easier/cheaper.
Hi guys, I know this has probably been asked multiple times but need a fresh wind of advice. Shall I switch from pre tax to post tax/Roth contribution for reminder of the year? Not sure what’s the benefits are of each. If I anticipate my income to go up, shall I max Roth now?
Recent college grad having a lot of trouble understanding if I should max my traditional or Roth IRA this year. I make 100k salary and made 60k from short term capital gains last year, but maxed my 401k. Does this mean I made too much to use a Roth this year?
Time to switch to bonds in your 401k?

Advice needed! Have just been asked to Freelance with W2 form. Without any benefits. Is this even possible? Would I lose my eligibility for Unemployment insurance once the gig ends? I was laid off from my full time agency job 2 months ago and have already freelanced as self employed on an LLC since. Seems like they’re being tight and taking advantage of the current climate.

What options do I have to address these excess contributions?

If we mandate masks for US citizens who are fully vaccinated why don’t we check Covid status of illegals and prevent them from entering? Heck, they shouldn’t be allowed to enter anyway!!
I can't wait for the first zombie movie to go extra realistic and have a bunch of entry level hires at Big 4 firms complain that being eaten by a zombie is preferable to closing hair salons.

Has anyone seen or discussed this Petition for SHRM must support Black Lives Matter & the LGBTQ community? I’ve grown increasingly concerned and disappointed in SHRM’s lack of vocal support for employment protections for LGBTQ+ and black and brown workers, especially as a black woman in HR. It seems like SHRM is overly focused on what is absolutely “legal” and not what is right. I’m of the opinion HR professionals must not only be “legal” but have a relevant and compassionate stance
Applying to T15 in R2. Currently have a 700 GMAT (43Q, 41V) after taking once. Even if I raise my quant to 47, which would be impressive for me, I’ll still be at a 700 (possibly 710). 3.6 undergrad GPA. Worth retaking? Or just focus on the rest of my applications?
