It’s totally fine. But the firms that sponsor you will keep you for 3 or more years post graduation. Remember that they also won’t bump your pay to whatever the market is paying just cos you graduated.

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!

Hi everyone! I’ve been thinking for years now if I should pursue an MBA program? I’ve heard from many that for some it was helpful and they needed it to get promoted. Others say that currently it can be seen as a waste of money if you don’t need it to be promoted for example. I’m asking because I’ve always wanted to strive to reach the highest level of education I can and I do like to learn but an MBA is an investment and I don’t know if it’s worth it.

Did I screw myself by being the first person to bring up salary figures with a startup? I tried to hold firm and make sure they said ballpark range first before I said if those align with my expectations, but she gave a vague “it depends on market, but I can give you a broad range from $45k-$90k for the role.” So I responded with $70k-$80k. Should I have asked for the highest range then of $80k-$90k? Worst case scenario, I don’t want it being revoked.

I've been in the interview process w/my county's attys office for 3 months. Currently waiting for a final interview before a decision is made. It's been two weeks since my last interview with them. I had a missed call this morning. No VM was left, incoming calls not allowed nor any caller ID info. After a reverse lookup I found the specific attorney who the number belongs to. Would it be odd for me to contact her office directly and ask for her? Should I just wait & see if she calls again?
