I know questions about internal mentors have been asked before, but has anyone ever gotten a life coach? Did it help or was it more of a money making scheme?

No, but my sister went through one and it really turned her life around. Could be worthwhile if you've tried other methods such as meditation, etc.

They're good when you need to make a specific decision and you want to talk it through with someone independent. For general malaise, mental health issues or or complete uncertainty in life, a licensed therapist is better.

Keep in mind there is no accreditation or licensing for life coaches. Literally anyone can give themselves that title and take money from clients. So be very careful in selecting someone.

Mentally exhausted in this career. Don’t always mind the hours but don’t find it fulfilling. I think tech is more interesting and operational. Offered an analyst role at 140k base/bonus (not including equity but not public so not factoring that in). It’s not my ideal company because it doesn’t seem like growth is exponential but people seem nice and role seems better than consulting - gotta start somewhere? Only done a few interviews so far though. Is it better to wait? Have <2 YOE.

Need ethics/moral help from my fellow 🐟 I got laid off from ACN earlier this year. I accepted an offer and started at a boutique consulting firm exactly one month ago today. This morning, I got an email from Deloitte recruiting for the same position I’m in now, which is where I want to develop my career. Part of me wants a break from the big consulting firms, but at the same time, going to a Big 4 would feel more at home to me. Is it worth entertaining the offer, or should I just stay away?

To all the post-9/11 veterans, it’s a somber day that unites us all in the reason we fought. It’s easy to forget - especially with the younger generation having 9/11 be a history lesson rather than something they lived through. The waters became muddy with two wars and politicians, but you all stepped up and did your duty. Thank you all for your service, it’s an honor whether we crossed paths or not.
