Interviewing with Elixirr next week for a (Senior) Consultant role in NYC; recruiter connected me to opportunity. Concerns are that they do more execution than strategy and quoted compensation at $115K might be lower than industry average. Would appreciate any insight on reputation and career development prospects.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Been on the bench for 2 weeks. Internal strategy role for a year was offered to me. Should I take it?
Do top 10 schools generally fly you out for interviews? Or are they mostly Skype? Or do you have to pay your way to interview in person? Does it depend on the school?

I took the bar July 2021 and had a screening interview with Fragomen about 2 weeks ago. They seemed interested and open to interviewing as a contract to hire attorney.

Interviewing for Accenture and concerned about the background check. I have a few drinking tickets from silly mistakes made in college. How strict is Accenture regarding misdemeanors?

What are tips for interviewing when your current role has defeated you? I’m anxious and depressed a decent amount of the time. All I think about it my job right now & how terrible it is..even though I’m trying to remember I need this job to financially support myself. I think it has also knocked down my confidence and self esteem and so now I’m wondering why anyone would want to hire me after interviewing me.
Are there any Salesforce opportunities at Microsoft? None of the job openings actually mention Sf skills as primary requirement. Currently sf consultant at Deloitte. Considering applying to program manager 2. Anyone here made this transition?

How do I learn to accept my role in the company and "slow down" career wise. I am used to quick promos and my new company is hiring someone with equal product exp to a more senior role than me, likely due to his 3 more yrs of overall experience. I am having my first child in the next few months and I think it would be good for me to learn some patience in my career growth and just enjoy my current role. I personally think going on leave will hurt my near term growth but should I even care? TIA
I would like to move more into a management role. Does going to a non tier 1 school enable me to make the career change? What about an online program?

How difficult is it to be counseled out at Big 4 firms? Is it common or do you really have to mess up? Are any of the firms more cutthroat than the others?
Curious question: Selected in this year lottery but for “h1b change of status cap subject FY2021”. I was planning to change company if h1b is approved this year(oct 1). Does this email subject line above means that I have to wait until next year October(2021) in order for my h1b to be officially approve and to change company? 😰

28 weeks and really struggling with insomnia and super crazy fatigue - makes most days very difficult. Have a pretty good schedule (but unique role with no one to delegate to) and the fatigue is making it still so difficult to get through the day. How did y’all handle the third trimester? Going out at 36 weeks - did any of y’all go out earlier due to fatigue, etc? Or just ride it out?

How do you deal with work-related thoughts on weekends? Used to be able to shut work off at night and Friday afternoon. Lately I’ve been dreaming about detailed stuff from current project.
Buy gold, buy silver. Physical is best, tradeable assets that let you redeem for tangible are second best: $PSLV and $PHYS are best Gold hit $2K+ an ounce today - for those who are 'TLDR', that ain't good. The FED is going to raise rates soon to combat stagflation but it will not solve the entire puzzle. Precious metals, metal miners, standalone property in healthy markets, and for those who can handle risk, cryptocurrency, are your safe havens. The clues are there; we're toast; good luck.
Align to non-M&A offering but do a lot of work in the space (DD, integrations). B4 recruiter reached out and wants me to provide resume for review with hiring partner in M&A space. Does it work if I provide a bio with summary of M&A projects (client names removed) instead of a traditional resume? Also plan to list education and past experience but primary focus on recent M&A work
How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?
I want to confirm, Canadian with 1 shot (second scheduled for fall). I can travel to Greece with a negative PCR test? This is what I see in the guidelines but want to check against others’ experience. Will see if I can get a second vaccine before then but can’t count on it.
