Is the interview process to get into IBD harder or easier than top consulting firms like BCG/McKinsey/Bain? Where do the truly smart people work nowadays?
For those who’ve taken the Big 4 > M7 MBA path, did you need to differentiate how your experience at B4 was superior to that of your peers? Or is just surviving a few years with an average rating ok?

Parents turn 70 next year. I’m trying to figure out what to expect, how to prepare for retirement, etc. Any suggestions? Feeling overwhelmed, not sure where to start. They live in India while I’m in Canada and no chance of bringing them over right away ( will take 3 years or so, based on visa timelines). They are mobile right now but we had a bad scare where dad was hospitalized overnight and I can see that they need someone for these once a year events ( which will probably get more frequent).

After my last post, our white VP said: "All [our CEO] is asking globally about everyone's activity on LI...by EOD please send #original post/#shared posts (last 3 months). Btw, mine was 36/45." 1. Wtf. Is this a thing? 2. Idea for response?

Transitioning out of Recruiting - how can I figure out my next step? I think I could be interested in HR Generalist work, HRIS/People Ops, or a DEI role. Aside from talking to people in these roles, how could I get a taste of each to see what would be the most enjoyable?
Has anyone implemented a model where teachers observe other classrooms and coach each other?
