I just got laid off. Actively on a project, level 10 S&C, chargability at 85% but almost 8 percent recoverable on top of that. Have to look for a job now. Anyone hiring? Thanks all! I’ve had a great time here!
Looking to get started freelancing in NY. Small portfolio, mostly a mix of spec and client work. What’s the best place to start?
Not everyday, but some days, I genuinely love this job. When the client appreciates the overtime you put into banners, it doesn’t even matter if your kids and ex-wife won’t talk to you anymore.
Audit that I should've rolled off end of May is still needing work from me because client is very slow during WFH, and now I have 3 projects at once 😵
Can an audit client get in trouble for reaching out to an audit employee regarding possible emplpyment opportunities even if the employee is not on the audit team? Even if to inform you that employment discussions have to first be cleared by the firm?
How do you know when you’re burned out? I’m not busy at work, I get paid good money, but the thought of working on any project makes me feel dread. I don’t mind coming to work, but I don’t (cont.)
Any good iOS app to assist with tracking the time spent on a project? I always lose track of time over the course of the day when handling multiple clients. Looking for an app that can prompt me often
I am expecting a promotion this year from C to SC. Should I wait to hear back on the news before I initiate my roll off from the current long term project that I've spent 1.5 years on? Dyingggggg
Sent out to deck to my client and just realized I wrote “value prostitution” vs “value proposition.” FML
Client says he’s happy with the deliverable and it’s great work, but does not have any money for an extension. Not sure if the Client is being polite or really means it. 🤷🏼♀️
Just rolled onto a new project this week. Client has given me a few assignments I’ve been doing this week. My company manager has been too swamped to talk to me still. How do I go about just getting
What would you do if other SM comes to tell you she/he prefers directly engaging with the client when the opportunity brought to his attention by you and you has the relationship with the client?
Help! Applying to a job and one of the only real requirement is to show how I’m “adept at understanding client needs, and designing and implementing creative solutions”. My issue is I work in risk advisory and most of our client engagements don’t actually involve implementation. We usually present our findings and recommendations and move on. What’s the best way I can tackle this? I’m coming up blank and the deadline is soon.
I'm so upset my flight was on time and I got to my client site in the south. Could have been an epic WFH snow day in NYC 😔❄💔
Have a traveling project again: can I get advice on airline recommendation: United, Delta, or AA (forgot about route) just overall satisfaction rating
Is it okay to just give 1 week notice if you are on bench and not assigned to a project ? Anyone done this ?
New filter for effort when the client is a dick: will this lead to work that will make my/creatives’ careers? If the answer is no & I’ve tried twice to fix it than I’m not losing sleep over it anymore
When the partner you’re working with tells you to flirt with the client to help close the deal...
Has a client ever assessed your account? I’m in Canada and a client can serve a notice for an appointment to assess the firm’s fees. Is this a death sentence?
Need a suit recommendation in the $500-800 price range. I got a couple Jos A Banks suits tailored when I was an intern, and they served me fine for that purpose, but haven’t upgraded since because I hardly ever needed one. I’m not going to need a suit for office-wear anytime soon, but would like at least one nice, versatile suit for weddings and receptions, etc. My size has changed since college, so I’ll need to get measured. I’m not in a major city, but will be in Boston and DC fairly often.
I graduated June 2019, started full-time September 2019 and I feel like I have been so bad with tracking, saving, and overall being responsible with my money. My savings amount has been pretty stagnant for as long as I remember and I don't do any "investing" apart from contributing to my 401K and making HSA contributions. Can't help but feel like I'm behind everyone and don't know how to get myself out of this rut feeling. Any tips for how to turn myself around (i.e. creating budget, etc.)?
Guys. How much approx does monthly or biweekly health insurance comes up to in SF paycheck?
I don't have a very technical background (or cloud background at all tbh) but was given an offer as a Customer Engineer for google cloud. I'm not sure if this is due to diversity hiring (woman and a minority here), I've heard google cloud is trying to up diversity hiring a lot. I want to take the offer but not sure if I'm setting myself up for failure due to not having a strong tech background. Any advice?

How strict is ORD with flying out with meals? I like to meal prep and am thinking about taking some with me for the week.
I need help immediately! So I just got an offer from Gartner, but I am also interviewing with Google, Microsoft, and Tik Tok. I am prepping for a final loop at Microsoft but told Gartner I have an offer to make negotiations more in my favor. Is it bad to accept an offer from Gartner then finish the interviews at another company higher on my list and accept the other offers(Google/Microsoft) instead? & Can I push for my compensation without presenting the other offers?
Wondering if other districts have taken away duty free lunches for teachers to supervise lunch in the classroom to provide social distancing.
I'm 24 and living at home with my family on a $60K salary. Due to living at home, I've been able to dollar cost average a big sum into ETFs every month. Over the past year and a half, I've been able to put away $50K between my emergency fund and brokerage account. However, I'm starting to think about moving out. Thoughts on renting vs buying at this age and now? Is it better to keep putting large amounts into ETFs or should I start saving for a down payment? Thank you!
Any recommendations for making the two week waiting period go by faster? I feel like I am just counting the days until I know if we are pregnant. We’re trying for number 2.
Current senior graduating in December 21. Go to a complete non-target but have multiple experiences at well known companies/banks on my resume. Current intern at a very well known tech company in their consulting arm… but have had zero luck on applications.

DMA: Do they even acknowledge your messages? If so, what’s your gender/ethnicity? I’m a fan, but wonder if they’re selective bc of sheer volume, or I’ve been ignored bc I’m not their peeps (white/M)😔
A friend of mine got out of UX Bootcamp not long ago. He spent a lot of his adult life training to become an illustrator wanting to work for games. Since he finished bootcamp, he can't find a job.. not even an internship. Any tips to help him get there?
