I’ve decided to make my career in the government side of consulting. Been doing it 10 years. Seems hard to find jobs where I manage people unless at a big 4. Anyone else find this true?
Hey fishes, I’m 21M here. Class of 2020, 3.2 GPA from a top 20 target school for undergrad.
I am 8 months into my first consulting job. What is the timeline for someone like myself? I managed to get some 2020 GMAT prep books but apart from that, I’m not really sure what the direction is. Do I just prep, practice, and take the test? I would like to apply for schools by 2024-2025. Thanks!

Those who got dogs during covid in the city, which walking services will you use? Our guy has only walked with us and we want him to learn before we have to go back to the office. Doorman building downtown Manhattan if that makes a difference
I’ve been a data analyst for a little over a year for my current employer. I manage databases, input new information, solve issues utilizing root-cause analysis, and I maintain reports on a daily basis. The only thing I don’t do is work with coding such a SQL. I’m currently enrolled in Coursera Google Data Analytics Certification to learn more about SQL.
I want to get a job in data analytics that uses SQL. How do I show that I know SQL without having direct SQL related work experience?

How do you respond to someone sliding into your DMs if you’re not interested? Context: been subtly thirst trapping on ig lately, and a girl I knew from college randomly messaged along the lines of “hey just saw you on my feed how have you been?” Very flattered since this doesn’t happen to me but not sure how to proceed…leaning towards just not opening the message 😂

I have a friend coming over today and I’m making a charcuterie board for the first time. I’m having anxiety about it loll. I have a desserts board and a cheese and meats board. Shopping for all the items alone took forever and now setting them up seems like a huge challenge. Tips?
I'm absolutely looking forward to the angry posts by folks who've been cheering for a recession so they can "finally get a house for cheap" only to realize that the house they want will still be unaffordable for them either because interest rates will be too high or their jobs won't be secure enough.
Best drinks with reposado, jack daniels, and grey goose? Mom just bought some some alc and margarita mix w some syrups to go with my new apartment. I have a nice blender for frozen drinks. Also anyone know how much reposado 750ml costs? Online is saying like $50-60 so prob not gonna be sharing that w people gotta savor it for myself or maybe w a date. I know jack daniels and grey goose (both 750ml) are like standard $28-30
My manager (female) stretched her legs during a 1:1 meeting and wrapped her legs around what she thought was a table leg. Turned out it was actually my ankle. I was shocked and didn’t know how to react, and before I knew it, it had been too long to awkwardly tell her. So I sat perfectly still the entire meeting. She never found out and I never spoke about it to her.
The worst part about working two jobs in the event of The great resingnation is staff shortage and doing other people's job. As a immigrant, it is freaking tough cause you can't quit until your pr.

Been there, done that (divorced in early 40s). Wasn’t fun. Cost me a ton of money but I was better off without him!
Dating as a mid-40s female was a challenge - we are largely “invisible” as men in our age group are often seeking women 25-35, and I wasn’t interested in men 20 years older than me either.
Wow. Divorce proceedings are such bs…
You know what stat I found interesting? My ex girlfriend that gaslighted me and eventually ghosted me after 6 months of dating and semi moved in together with in like a 3-4 day a week type thing, I found out that she has broken up with someone days before seeing me and had just kicked him out of her apartment, and also days after breaking up with me and ending the serious LTR she started dating someone new and had moved in like a month later.
Well, there’s a term for that. Researchers call that person a serial cohabiter. Later found out she was engaged to man number 3, the third man she had dated and moved in with all within a single calendar year.
Do you know what the percent likelihood is that her marriage fails? Almost 70% (and I forget the stat, but something gross like within the first 5 years of marriage too). This brings me great pleasure to think about. I don’t need to drag her through the mud even though she bashed me on social media and misrepresented me and the things I did to all her friends. I dont even need to share the truth of what happened. I just take solace in the fact that she’ll get what she deserves.
Won’t need to cohabitate after tho. Get. That. Breadddddddd.
I am forty and going through a separation right now. Been living on my own for about two weeks now… I am still alive.
Uh yes..why would you want to be divorced, unless you’re that miserable in your marriage. If that’s the case do it now so you and your SO can move on. Having been that it’s not easy, lots of transitions but sure the dating options can be a lot but not always good.
Just curious about this totally different stage of life
It’s tons of fun. Actually in your exact scenario. Being single in my highest earning years? Not a problem. Paying ungodly amounts of money during a divorce, sounds good. It’s worth it.
Finally being able to use dating apps I’ve been hearing about for a decade, cautiously optimistic.
It's a bit strange. It's hardly inevitable to get divorced. I mean, IIRC, the overall divorce rate is < 50% these days. And for educated/high-income demographics, it's always been much lower (<30%).
What makes you think you'd be alone? I am actually quite happy single and able to have "me" time, but I've had a couple LTRs and lots of dates since getting divorced 6 years ago at 38.
I didn’t mean alone in a gloomy way, just like getting to be just myself. Figure out my own hobbies, hang out with my own friends, spend money on only things I want. Also doing that as a 40 year old with a totally different mentality than 23 year old me.
Just kind of interesting to think about.
Why did I just laugh so hard thx for my making my night
