Is it weird if a junior employee (C or SC level) wears expensive clothing? I see a jacket/blazer I’d love to buy/wear to work, but it’s pretty expensive ($1500+) I don’t want to make a faux pas.

Do any of you (esp tech consulting) get this feeling of being constrained to a client / industry / sector/ city / country? Typically leaders of similar experience and pay levels in industry will be in global roles. However in b4 all roles are very local. Global roles if any, aren't true P&L roles and I see them more influencing roles rather than responsibility roles.

Fwiw, 3+ years experience in forensics, CPA, all that jazz. Input/experiences are appreciated!

Would it be dumb to leave before October if I’m very confident about a promotion to manager and the “substantial” raises that leadership has promised us? I can’t help but look longingly at job postings and am genuinely excited about a few that I’ve found, but it seems short sighted to apply now (and likely start in late August or early September) instead of waiting until October to get that manager title and a big raise.

How hard is it to find a job when unemployed as compared to while still with your firm?

Details (if too long, no need)
We all know it’s harder, but haven’t had the experience of applying while unemployed. For those with this experience, all other things equal, as a percent (for example, 200% harder), how much harder would you say it is to find a new job 2 months after being unemployed vs. finding a job while still at the company you will be laid off from in a couple months?
