1 year out of school w/ 6 months of experience doing contract work as an ERP consultant , currently working with a strategy firm (6 months ) ... liked the technical stuff way more . But both are startups and feeling discouraged because I can’t seem to land an interview anywhere in the industry for any type of entry level consulting roles . Got an offer from big firm but blew it because clearance process took too long . Should I give up and switch industries ? No idea what to do ...

Had a great informational interview with a managing director last week. I mentioned that I applied for a position within the company and he said he could fast track the application for me. I sent him my resume at his request. I want to follow up. Is it too soon given that we met last week? Also, assuming he was genuine, I want to update him on what I've done since our chat and ask about how to prepare for any upcoming discussions/case interviews? Am I being too pushy? Thx
Can someone explain how so many people have competing offers for negotiation? I keep hearing “don’t expect to have a strong case for negotiation unless you have a competing offer”. Wouldn’t that have to line up perfectly with you interviewing for multiple roles at the same time?? An offer has a quick expiration period... or do you negotiate with an expired offer you rejected within the past few weeks.

Starting the interview loop again for a PgM role in UX at Google. I received good feedback the first set of interviews I did for a previous role but I didn’t get to the hiring committee. I would like to increase my chances this time since there are multiple roles open across different teams. I’m really worried about the GCA round since this loop is different and I don’t have experience in UX. Does anyone have any resources that would be useful for me to leverage for this round?
Have an interview in an hour. Leaving my firm after 3 months bc the role is far less challenging and fulfilling than I anticipated, and the role’s responsibilities are way off from the job description. Should I voluntarily explain why I’m leaving so soon or should I only bring it up if asked?

The owners of our company like to do a holiday handout at Thanksgiving each year. They used to do a whole Thanksgiving meal (turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, pie). Last year there was a lack of available turkeys in the quantity we needed, so we switched it up and did a bottle of sparkling cider with a $25 gift card. This year the owners want to do something different but they are not sure what. Does anyone have any suggestions? We have about 300 employees in one location. Thanks!!
Starting a new job on January 3. Want to leave on good terms in case I want to boomerang down the road. Is it a bad move to put in my 2 weeks on December 17, right before my whole project team disconnects? Or should I at least give them a heads up before I put in 2 weeks? Do I need to tell my practice leaders/PPMDs in advance? I’m a SC fyi. Thanks fam! First time doing this.

Hours real talk. I've always been very "bill what I work" so that means light weeks I'm destroying my own utilization/billing initiatives instead. Meanwhile peers bill 40-45 regardless. Am I an idiot?
