Any good ideas for teaching students about coins? Our first graders have been struggling to master lessons about money.
To all the post-9/11 veterans, it’s a somber day that unites us all in the reason we fought. It’s easy to forget - especially with the younger generation having 9/11 be a history lesson rather than something they lived through. The waters became muddy with two wars and politicians, but you all stepped up and did your duty. Thank you all for your service, it’s an honor whether we crossed paths or not.
I turned on “open to work” (but only casually browsing) on LinkedIn last night because I’ve had a god-awful week and am legitimately considering my options. Except I was immediately bombarded by calls and emails from recruiters. My office phone was blowing up this morning in the middle of trying to get a filing out the door… I’ve already turned it back off. Lesson learned LMAO
Currently rethinking my lessons for next year, does anyone do guided notes for any of their math classes? Or in general... high school classes?

Does anyone have reccos for online classes, resources, or even books for guitar and/or bass lessons? I have taught myself both and can carry a tune but have found myself hitting a wall from lack of music theory or technical knowledge and would love to be able to just jam a bit more as opposed to looking up chords of songs I like.
New EM and just learned a great lesson about how even if my team’s and my work is 100% right, but leadership doesn’t feel in touch with it or clued in on development, it won’t get too far.
Has anyone here gone through the coming out process at our firms? Could use any pointers/lessons learned on process you could share!

My confidence is very low today. I have a few difficult clients who have been disrupting meetings by trying to push current state and I’m trying to come in with different angles because I need to change quite a bit. One of the males who talks at me sent an email asking if I would like overview lessons of how this client works and that just made me feel like shit. I’m the only female on the team and when I ask my SM for help he says “this is your job” and I just need some uplifting. 😑
Just learned a tough lesson. The difference between a good idea and bad one is who says it.
In what type of project/assignment have you learned the most useful lesson for advancing your career? Currently feel that current consulting open roles are more secondment roles rather than great learning opportunities.

What should technology consulting interns receiving full time offers expect to be offered salary wise in a full time offer from different big 4 companies?
Went from a big firm to work for a smaller firm. The people in the smaller firm are protective of their work and are good by their work too. I no longer feel chaos or stress. I am treated with respect and my schedule is more normal. I am even working more billable hours than before, but it feels like a seamless experience. I don’t work then past 5pm or anything out of the ordinary for this time of the year. I am so grateful!
Question for the more seasoned consultants, these layoffs and overall downturn in our industry, is it an annual cycle? Or is this abnormally bad
Im a M at a Big 4 firm working M&A strategy. 10+ YOE, no MBA. I got here with an engineering degree. 200k+ TC. I’m considering a MBA, in fact, I got accepted to a top 20 school and will start part time in just over a month. Is it necessary at this point? Im already doing the work and learning what I need on the job. Do I need to put the stamp on it and make it official?
Vax question: my state is finally letting me get the vax. I am hoping to do it this weekend (J&J). The problem is I have to fly into Chicago next weekend and will be required to take a COVID test before I arrive as I won’t have the 2 weeks to be “fully vaccinated”. Will the J&J vax cause a false positive on my COVID test? I don’t think it will, as it is a viral vector vax and not a weakened version of the virus, but maybe there is someone on this app who knows the real answer.

Everyone I know who was crazy safe during COVID round 1 is now sick. I think it’s because they didn’t get any exposure for so long. If we have another lockdown, what does it mean for public immune system ability to fight other viruses?
