I was an MBA intern and FT hire at Deloitte. Been here 3 years, been at M for the last year. I have seen others leave at this point in their careers and go direct to SM/director roles in industry, but as I start applying for jobs and have convos with recruiters, I have had more than one say that I’m light on YOE and that for that reason alone I am either not considered for a SM role or unlikely to have my salary expectations met. How can I combat/preempt this? Others clearly have.
Planning to move to Canada in a year through the Express Entry program.

Hey 🐠! As a 26M with an Engineering (not Computer) degree outside the US at good but not great school, and 2YOE in IT consulting + 2.5YOE in Management consulting, would a Masters in CS/MBA at a T15 school make my profile much more atrractive to FAANG PM or SW Engineer roles in the US? Besides also having the skills, of course. Trying to plan the next steps in my career Thanks a lot!

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

Curious to know, have you dated or currently with someone with mental health issues? My SO suffers from it and I don’t know how to help him. He takes different medications for it which causes his mood to vary from day to day. The medications combined with his drinking and getting high, I worry about his overall health. Sometimes he just makes me feel like shitty person. I’m not trying to be selfish, but it does affect me. How do I handle this? Sometimes I wonder if it’s worth it all.
