I’m weirdly jealous, been double and triple book for months and can’t turn things down when I can handle it and bc, well, good gigs and good $$$. But man, I’d be lying if I said I haven’t fantasized about just having one job and how nice and easily managed that would be.

LOL me too. With 2 now. Had 3 before and was going out of my mind with all the asks at same time. Are you guys able to get your rates? I took one that paid a lot less of my rate and I thought it was going to be light work ends up being a nightmare of loads of work. I’m getting out of it and going to try and get another one who can pay my rate.

Campus recruiters at professional service firms — has scheduling final rounds changed in a virtual world for your firm or do you still try to schedule your candidates on Fridays with a full day of back to back interviews? Is it easier or now preferred to schedule ad hoc through the week? I was on maternity leave last year during COVID and I’m curious if preferences for students (or interview teams) have changed? I would still think the former/old way is better from work planning perspective.

Non-MBA Senior associate that got manager promo at big four but also a Sr Program Manager at Amazon. Amazon is still offering better pay even with the manager promo but I have built a strong brand at my consulting firm and have been getting promoted almost every year. Not sure if I should leave knowing I am on partner track and go to Amazon and work hard again to build such a strong brand there too. What do you guys think? I like and am comfortable at my current firm but money wise I’m not happy

Anyone leave before their bonus (before knowing what the amount was) and then regret it when it turned out to be a huge bonus? Got a great offer that I want to take but feeling FOMO by leaving the bonus on the table. And yes, I tried moving the start date and asking them to cover the lost bonus but they said no and it’s still a better offer and it would be irresponsible not to take it.
