Definitely but unless we're talking 5-10 years down the line with relevant experience, you'll probably go back to the same role you were in (so just be that many years behind). It's not a race to the top though so plenty of people do it!

Hi there! My boyfriend is a cop but he is looking to switch careers to be in the private sector. Does anyone have any ideas of jobs he should look into?

I joined Tech M as a fresher and I was given a role of recruitment co-ordinator. However due to less people in Team I was asked to take end to end recruitment. Now that I am into it I made around 30+ Joinings in this quarter. But all the credit was taken up by my manager. I am reluctant to approach him as he might say that my role set was for coordinator. I have 6-7 months of Experience now. Due to high notice period I am not able to get into other companies. But as a fresher should I stay back or leave?

Hey guys,
Need an opinion. How do you think pwc ac banglore will be affected in case recession news comes true?
I heard that the work is majorly from US and that too kind of residual work. So, I thought if recession hits US then primary impact will be on AC centers.
Please provide genuine thoughts. Also was there any layoffs during covid?

I recognize this is a touchy subject and I’m prepared to be wrong, but for MBA internships at MBB, I’ve noticed (anecdotally) that most of the folks who got offers from my M7 school fall into one of the “URM” demographics. Given that these firms are working harder than ever to hire diverse classes, do they try especially hard to “lock in” those candidates through the internship before they’ve been recruited elsewhere to other firms/industries?
