Consulting during corona - I’m interesting in switching to consulting and interviewed with a few firms (pre-COVID) and got an offer plus a few offers put on pause. It would be helpful to get clarity on what the industry is like now and if anyone recommends still making the switch or staying put (especially interested in Deloitte, Accenture, PWC, EY human capital practices)

Hi Fishes, I got a call from a TCS manager last week and he interviewed me saying he received my CV from an external source. He shared his tcs email id, asked me to make minor modifications in the CV and then there will be a client interview. He said he will get back to me. I reached out to him 2 days later and he informed they were evaluating my eligibility with TCS. It has been 4 days since that and I have not heard from them. What does this actually mean? TIA.

I've seen a lot of posts around APA and utilisation. Please correct my understanding if I'm wrong. APAs are only for those who have tested +ve or are taking care of family members who have tested +ve and cannot be used for any other situation. If that's true and you/your family have defeated Covid, why the fuss over utilisation? P.S. plz let me know if there's another use of APAs I'm not aware of
I always see people moving from big firms to smaller ones, but not the other way around. As my first job I am currently working in a small investment firm with a very relaxed corporate culture but eventually I’d like to switch to consulting or a big corp/ bank.
