Lots of articles say it’s meaningless/less impactful to begin a convo with the typical “hey, how are you?”...What’s your take here? Let’s say you have an interview and the recruiter will call you at 9am. How do you answer the phone?

Anyone at Wieden+Kennedy willing to take a look at my book? I’m confident my many emails full of bribes and begging have been relegated to your recruiter’s spam folder. It’s a dark place in there surrounded by messages of erectile disfunction cures and volcano insurance.

Sunday thoughts - prepped for an upcoming interview all day and felt wracked with self doubt. Then realised that the 5-year-ago (22yo) me would be thrilled to be where I am now. I came from nothing from the middle of nowhere - the land of teen moms and red necks. I had imposter syndrome all throughout undergrad and didn’t believe in myself. If you’ve come a long way, share your story and let’s toast to our successes. This job can be hard, but getting to today hasn’t been easy either
Any MBB fish that went from T2 > industry > MBB? Why did you go back into consulting? I am in a pretty good role right now but besides industry circles, I have no branding. MBB has invited me for interviews. Should I even consider? TC is about the same and I have decent hours. Worth going back for the brand, network, flexibility in/possibility of better exit opps?
Tips for interviewing at Amazon? Recruiter contacted me for a position I didn't apply for and set up an interview without any context. They probably got my resume for other positions I applied for I presume.

A buddy of mine got a Tile from Marriott for being Platinum Premier Elite. I'm PP Elite, didn't get anything?
How should associates handle getting criticized by a partner for spending too much time on something? Specifically, if I’m given work that a partner knows I have little/no experience with, and I spend the time trying to learn it, should I try to defend that when the partner says I billed too much and asks why? Do people not bill for that kind of thing/are we not supposed to bill for all of our time? I’m always so confused..
D - your thoughts on how adjusted utilization is viewed within the firm. Is that on par to client or way beyond consideration?

My mom is in her 60s, not very active, ambitious, and doesn't have a social life. I can see that the new lifestyle under covid has made her depressed and lonely. It's very difficult and sad to see.

Went through a bad burnout a few months ago and ended up taking some time off during the Christmas holidays to recover. Now that I am back, I feel disengaged and can’t help but constantly feel like I don’t belong here. Anyone else go through a similar experience?

I’m sure this has been asked before—but how do you get through work when going through a breakup with a long term SO? I have a new male boss & cant really tell him what’s going on. I’ve been taking PTO scattered. I live alone and NYC Covid winter alone is already feeling so overwhelmingly sad and lonely on top of everything else.
Any tips on recruiting at Twitter? First round tomorrow. Advice on culture, mission, etc are appreciated.
Getting really sick of health care providers and my own health insurance company trying to constantly screw me on medical bills. I've caught errors on the last 5 bills I've received. Starting to think this is happening on purpose...
