Fish, I have an interview tomorrow for my dream job. I'm not feeling like myself and I'm super nervous! Any advice? I just really hope I don't blow it 😖
Hey all, I’m considering a position with KPMG’s Deal Advisory / M&A service line as an M. What are your thoughts on 1) work life balance, 2) business outlook, and 3) culture? The salary is very competitive.
I am in a situation where my group is about to be laid off. I have not interviewed for 8 years and never in the US. I consider myself extremely talented in the tech field and have contributed to many well used libraries and frameworks but I can’t even get an interview anywhere I apply. Are there any resources to get feedback on what I’m doing wrong?
I just moved to another state. How can I find a recruiter? Any tip is appreciated. I have been applying but haven't heard back much.
Anyone exited to LinkedIn would be able to chat about their culture and interview process? I’ve a call with the hiring manager tomorrow and would like to study up a bit (in addition to the usual Google and Glassdoor research). Thanks for your help!
SAP Function consultant at big4 or HR tech consulting at big4? HR tech role specializes in strategy, vendor selection, and optimization. Anyone know which will have better exit oops / career progression?
Is it feasible to make a jump from BizOps to TAS? No accounting experience. One of my good friends says his team is aggressively hiring because they are desperate for talent and he would be able to get my foot in the door. I’m a finance major who has only had consulting/industry experience, but if they’re actually paying what he says they are then it’s a no-brainer for me to jump if given the opportunity - I’d just be worried about failing without a CPA/truly relevant work experience.
Fish fam. Can you share tips to manage the pre-interview anxieties? After you have prepped and prepared what are some tips to go in energetic, positive, adaptable and release control over the outcome?
Does it make sense to boomerang back to big 4 just to brand my resume for exit ops in moving to industry in the future? I’m two years away from manager and my plan is to leave public once I make manager. My thoughts are exit opps will be greater if I leave from a big 4 AAS group rather than leaving from my current middle market firm, but does it really matter leaving from a middle market vs big 4?
Currently interviewing for TD&E senior consultant at EY - completed the pre-recorded video interview and have an interview with a manager in the practice coming up. Any tips from anyone who has been through this process recently? Thanks :) Also what's the day-to-day like in this role?

I’ve been approached outside the firm for a number of roles and take interviews for the practice. Today a start up SaaS company called and when i gave my base salary expectation (which i thought would be wildly out of range) it was not even a flinch and “well within range” no wonder there’s a staffing shortage at pwc, these guys are throwing money at us, and I’m in marketing!!!!!
Anyone at EY willing to talk about their experience and potentially refer for a salesforce senior dev position ?
Hi everyone, so I am in need of advice.. I want to pivot into Data Analytics or BA but I have no experience.. I am taking the IBM data Analytics cert on Coursera to build up my resume. As a hiring manager or decision maker what would you like to see in someones resume? What are some courses I would need to take? Or how can I stand out? Like SQL or Python courses in Udemy?
Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.
Was laid off in April by midsize and have had few interviews in following months. Working with various recruiters yet still no traction. Didn’t go to top tier law school and graduated with 3.2 gpa yet have 3 years experience and being lawyer was 2nd career. Recently working with a boutique for per diem work who gave offer which is a lot lower than prior role (over $40k). Role would have no billables and practically 50% split—what are your thoughts?

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!

Hello! I’m looking for an Associate Director of Strategy. Must have at least five years of agency experience to work at this privately held agency that actually pays bonuses. Yes, even at this level.

Strong relationship-based culture and way better work-life balance than what you might find at a holding company agency. Please DM if you’re interested. Thanks.

Does anyone have any thoughts about a company terminating an employee within the HR team for testing positive for COVID 19 and further accusing the said employee of being the one that created the entire team to become infected by not answering the health screening questions accurately? The week prior to employee being tested the entire team was in the office sick. The company in question weeks prior wrote the employee up referencing sexual innuendo due to an accusation of a preferred name.
