How soon is too soon to be preparing for a lateral move? I did my 1L summer internship in a niche area of securities law, loved it, took courses on it. I decided I wanted to explore securities law a little more broadly and not to pigeonhole myself. The firm I’m at is great—doing sec lit—but has zero work in that niche area that I liked. I’m afraid that I am passing on a passion, and I don’t want to get too “old” for a firm to take me on if I have zero experience in a specialty area. Advice? Thx

Anyone here leave Deloitte/PWC/KPMG, go to B-school - intern at better consulting firm like McKinsey Bcg, and get school paid for by them? Sounds like a smart move to me

I need some inputs on if I should pursue a MBA. Goal that I would use MBA for is getting into VC, only a undergrad internship in that space, or doing a search fund and like micro PE. I would consider corporate VC too. Alternative is to focus on meetups to meet founders, getting a better job and hit the accredited investor status so I can invest with angels. Undergrad was a top business school, so I feel strong with finance and other functions.

Thoughts on going with Fidelity to get my licenses (63,7) while still a junior in school. I have an offer from Goldman for an internship next summer but I’m leaning towards fidelity because they will pay for my school and I can start making money while still in school. Any advice would be appreciated.

I keep being told what I have to do, but no one will show me how to do it. Be very careful how you word IEP’s without being given. The wording. I have been here 2 years as an intern. Now, with 3 weeks to go, I find out the name of the support person? I was never given training and my intern support person never met with me. Not even once! I’m not being hired back because I don’t know how to do what I was never trained on.
How would you design an intern program for a project with a long onramp and few low-hanging fruit?
Hi I am a new teacher intern hired yesterday. I will be teaching second grade. School reopens on Aug 17. I do not have my own materials. I do not know what materials are there in my classroom. What should I buy? I will be talking to the Principal on Monday to find out more. I am very excited and nervous at the same time. Any tips and suggestions for me would be helpful.
Could my full time offer with pwc get rescinded if I take a summer internship at a bank before I start?
I like seeing others succeed.. but I can’t take people posting on LinkedIn that they “are pleased to announce” their new internship. Like they just signed with a SEC football team as a 5 star recruit.
I started a new gig today and the other AD keeps talking to me like I’m his intern... I look pretty young so maybe it’s a genuine mistake but I don’t know how to explain that I’m his counterpart?
What’s better - Credit risk (institutional) at Citi or credit risk (reserves and discount window) at the Federal Reserve in terms of longer term prospects?

Is it impossible for me to get my start in advertising if I'm not part of MAIP (I'm a POC)? I've been looking for a position since March, and I saw recently a lot of MAIP creative interns have been hired fulltime at their respective internship. Is it hopeless for me? Yes, I have a portfolio if anyone is hiring for a Jr CW position.
If we are working for a Big 4 as a Senior Consultant and expecting a promotion to Manager in the next 1.5 years and eventually want to exit into industry, then does it make sense to exit right now or take the promotion and exit?
For those stuck in the EWR chaos: make sure you get dropped off on Levels 3 or take the elevator to level 3 once inside instead of waiting on the huge TSA line. Pre-check line is wide open
How do you deal with back pain? I tried all things that could potentially help like getting lumbar support, ergonomic pillow, stretching steadily throughout the day etc. I'm seriously concerned if it will be what blocks me from moving forward in my career. Typical hours ranging 60 to 70 and i know my back will only keep getting worse during WFH and it's out of control. TIA.
Has bcg opened recruiting for 2021? Interviewed < a year ago, but they stopped for 2020 when the “cool off” period ended
After a year of being extremely underpaid, my boss gave me a 30% raise I didn't ask for. Is that normal? Or super generous?
I’m convinced 70% of MBBs revenue comes from the healthcare & financial services sector, and less of the exciting TMT work the rest of industry is heading (ex FAANG). Can any of y’all say you have greater than 30% REV here? Feel most blue chip clients have ex-MBB Corp dev teams in house by now...
I may be a junior, but we’re pitching to a potential client against three really good agencies and my CD wants to go to them with our deck of all 17 ideas. 17... Something tells me that’s too much...
Everyone says staying until one year manager is key to jumping to a great position outside of audit, however I would think there's a ton of value of jumping at senior, gaining corporate accounting experience, and then if you wanted to jump from there opportunities would also be present. Does anyone have experience with this situation?
Fellow Fishes, how much hike is expected solely for the promotion from senior associate to manager? YOE -13, Tech - SQL Dev Slightly urgent... TIA
Fuckers at Ritz Dubai have a mandatory $500/per person for a new year's dinner. Who the fuck would want that mandatory
How would you ask for a raise after your first year at an agency- getting a review because I asked for one, not sure they have anything planned.
Arrived onsite and was waving 👋 at client when somehow Fitbit⌚️ got loose and flew into somebody's coffee ☕️. Client laughed so hard he farted 💩, which made him laugh harder.

i just fired someone today
I can’t think properly for a brief that wants to join in on the conversation of what’s happening. I feel it’s inappropriate to do so, but my boss expects “creative” ideas from me. If I don’t deliver, I have a feeling I could get fired. How do you deal with this?
