I’ve been a nurse for 10 years in Boston. I have a few years of sales that involved a lot of travel. Looking to step away from bedside nursing and get back into sales. I’m also a bit discouraged with my earnings and the wife wants to go down in hours to spend more time with the kids. So far I’ve applied to a few Novartis jobs and the interview process has started. Any other companies that you would suggest? I figure leveraging my medical knowledge would be best but I’m open. Thanks guys
I had six hours worth of Zoom interviews with an AmLaw100 firm on Monday and Tuesday last week. I haven’t heard back on anything yet - when is “too” long to have not heard back and when should I reach out to their in-house recruiter for some kind of update?
Hi! I want to exit out of consulting with almost 4 years under my belt. I’m mainly looking for product manager roles but debating going into SWE (after studying). I’ve applied to so many roles externally but rarely get call backs. How can I increase the number of interviews I’m getting or be seen as a competitive applicant?
Submitted NYU R1… how much lead time is there usually between when interview notifs go out and the actual interview? Any rec on when to start prepping for interviews and how? Thank you!!

Interviewed for a senior strategist role and as we were griping about how clients can be, I said “oh yeah well the dream job is to never work with clients again right?!” And the recruiter just got back to me that “the role requires client interaction so that’s a dealbreaker”. I feel so dumb for getting comfortable during an interview to joke like that.
What are some great questions to ask during an interview with a Manager and Director? It is healthcare related if that helps.
What are the evaluation metrics for phone case interview at McKinsey? I’ve been reading reviews about being failed despite sufficient preparation. I have sufficient time to prep (2 weeks) but am finding myself underprepared at this point.
Hi all! Will any kind fish be willing to read my resume and give me feedback? I’ve been applying to different position but haven’t had any luck. Someone mentioned it is too specialized but I would love that a new set of eyes could read it to make it more appealing to consulting recruiters. Would really appreciate it :)

Agency Idea: The Ginger Group. Redheads only. You should see our Diversity and Inclusion page!
After the whole diversity and inclusion push from my firm, I decided to try to create a Jewish group especially given all the anti semitism in the world. I sent an email to HR in beginning of august. It’s now almost September and no response (this includes multiple follow ups). They say it usually take 1-2 days to respond to emails. Hypocrisy?
EYers is it appropriate to ask your counselor for LOR if you’ve recently switched and only known them for 6 mon? Other option is a manager who i work with on and off on my current project for 8 mo..
Panicking and need some guidance. Currently on a project where I serve a SME for a specific system for overall gap analysis across modules. CAL however has somehow looped me into leading discussions in areas I have no experience in. Fortunately there is time to buffer and align expectations on Monday. How could I convey being extremely uncomfortable with leading the discussion and also save face? Only caught wind of what was actually happening when I digged into the invites provided
Need advice! I have been for Acn for very long but resigned recently. I have not started on the new job yet. I felt happy when I accepted the new job. Recently, anxiety is creeping up on me. Self doubts like Have I made a wrong decision to quit? Maybe I should have waited for the performance bonus? Will the new job be too tough for me to handle? What if the new work culture is bad? What if I do not excel in the new company? Maybe I should retract my resignation?LOL Continued in the comment...
Genuine question: What are the most common exit options at Google BizOps? (1) For internal transfer to PM, those teams seem to prefer to hire Google engineers.

(4) For leaving Google, I don’t know where people usually go… Please share your thoughts / correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!

How often do people in REPE travel?
Transition to the big 4 or very small boutique firm? Looking to move due to being pigeonholed in BA work, low pay compared to the industry, and just generally needing a change. I passed all interviews for a boutique, 30 person company. They are preparing a formal offer and final call for this Tuesday. At my lowest ask, it’s a 15% pay increase. And I will be able to stay more of a generalist, doing more senior work. I have a Deloitte interview tomorrow for a SC position. Continued

Got married too early (6months) with a narcissist “love bomber”. Didn’t know what love bombing was, never had dated a narcissist before, and I thought I had found the one. I’m 4 months pregnant and
I had a Zoom idea I’d love to see. Wouldn’t it be great to have the option to only allow your zoom class to see the host (teacher) and not everyone else? Lots of my middle schoolers don’t want the camera on because they are embarrassed and don’t everyone looking in their house. They honestly don’t need to be looking at everyone else.
Any ideas on fun team bonding events/games to improve culture in a new remote tech startup? Very small team with long work hours, we are trying to build a people culture but hard because we can’t see much of peoples personalities through Zoom meetings much.
