Nothing today on the S& layoffs?
Analysts who left in their 1st year either (voluntarily or laid off) where did you end up and how long did it take you? Consulting isn't for me and I'm obviously only eligible for entry level roles

Accenture HR: When a prospective employer runs a background check, does HR tell them reason for leaving (quit, fired, etc.) or just dates of employment? Was fired in September and wondering if I am required to tell them (upon asking why there’s a gap) if I was fired or just that I decided to leave.
I got laid off and 3 weeks later a SC from HR sends me an email about an opening at the firm. Should I apply???
Any tips for someone who discounts good feedback but heavily focuses on the opportunities to improve? So much that I have a fear of getting fired despite receiving overall good feedback. I started a new job earlier this year. The function of the role and industry is new to me. My manager told me he generally has higher expectations than the rest of the organization. Originally, I viewed this as a great learning opportunity but can't help to think I'm not cut out for this and fear the worst.

Should I take a 15% pay cut and leave Accenture for industry? Or wait it out to find a better paying opportunity? Worried about chargeability and layoffs, hate the process of getting staffed. Wondering if it's worth it though for such a big drop.

Looking at the way people are laid off, utilization is just one part of it. It's so hard to pin point what is (proper consultants let go from projects, etc..)
What happens when you get laid off? Do you get to stay until the end of the day? Do you say goodbye to people or try to leave without anyone noticing?
Somewhat of a recent hire - how hard is it to transfer into a different practice in consulting? Will I get fired for asking?
I have the weirdest of the dreams some times. At times it's very random or Deja Vu moments or with people who I've spoken to or thought about earlier in the day. But the rest is just batshit crazy like celebrity drama in space, house fire, serial killer/rapist chase around the house with all my female friends/relatives, and today was this horror show where my boyfriend and I and some couple are trying to fight this spirit and I get possessed in the process and start attacking them 🤣😭 (1/2)
For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2
My parents are flying back from Seattle to India on Sunday. I don’t live there but taking them to see the city before their return. Where around Seattle downtown can I get a COVID test that can give the result in 24 hours.
I don't want to get vaccinated. I have debilitating anxiety, asthma, severe allergies to everything under the sun and afraid of a reaction. I have recently recovered from Covid too. I hate how ostracized society friends work everything is making me feel about this decision, which I know is only an inevitability at this point because my family is overseas and I can't not see them for the rest of my life. Anyone else in the same boat as me? PS. If ur here to bash on me keep it moving.
For those of you who had worked in both EY and PwC for tax (corporate tax). How do they compare in terms of culture/hours? I’ll be joining PwC’s ITP group.

There is an uncanny amount of activity on this bowl right now. Are you folks proactively looking to get out of consulting due to COVID-19’s impacts on the consulting industry?
Are cover letters important if they don’t ask for one? There are so many job postings and applicants I can’t tell if they would be beneficial to show effort or just a waste of time to write with how little time I assume people are looking at applications with the mass hiring going on. If I should be writing one, any advice how to format?
Due to COVID, Deloitte in Australia just announced 20% pay cuts, still working 5 days a week, and no promotions till January 2021. What would you do, what’s the options?
Thoughts on resigning before or after partner’s 4 day long weekend/ mini vacay? I wanted to do before so as to give a full month of time as I think she will really need it. (And if she doesn’t then I can get started on my own firm). I figured this way she had more time to think about how she wants to handle future of firm but also I do not want to ruin her vacation. Tips? Advice?

Fishes, looking for recommendations on growing business development and sales skills. Finding and growing pipelines, establishing marketing materials, closing sales, and similar for services.

Any recommendations on programs, certificates, courses, books, or other similar ideas would be greatly appreciated. TIA!
Any good shows to get into for the upcoming holiday break? Something similar to Succession perhaps but open to any suggestions
My principal approached me in the car pick up line on Friday to inform me that I’ve taken to many days off & school has just started. I took 1day off when my daughter tested positive for Covid, I had an doctor’s appt that had been scheduled 6 months ago to see the hematologist. Being that I’m anemic, current labs showed I need to have 2 iron infusions. I put in for 2 more days off to have that done. He told me in the future to wait until a work day! We done have any until December!!
