I know my client needs an Accounting Manager. I know this because they’re startup med device company that has their books in complete shambles. The current accounting team isn’t very strong. How do I let the client know that I would be interested in joining them? They’re not actively recruiting for any position but I know they’d benefit from it. Serious responses only :)
Last step of an interview process, I’ve received a case study where a new player enters the market with a cheaper and better proposition. Not dramatic movement of the market has been detected, but customers are asking for similar offers and the market seems to loose its “dynamics”.

Was just getting out of shower and running 2 mins late, so joined from my phone as I was getting dressed. Apparently the Zoom app on iOS (at least on my phone) defaults to camera ON. 13 people on the call. That sucked.
Show me an account person who says they properly push back on the client and I will show you a liar.

Should I just tell partner I need to roll off the team?
Can I count my Cognizant work experience as a consulting experience, where I’m sitting in a client office and doing a business analyst work?
I've had a junior (by level but not age) client resource that has been rude and disrespectful since the day he joined a couple weeks ago. I finally had enough today and told him off in an email and called him out for his disrespectful tone and language. My director (who was also on the email) sent me a ping saying that I wasn't out of line and that it was warranted and he'll handle any reactions stemming from that exchange. Nice to know that he has my back ...continued
Anyone else feel like there's an aversion to using pink in materials in consulting? I used it as a highlight color for my deck given client's brand standards and my M changed it to dark blue 👀.
Is it wise to leave a firm like ZS associates in for a backend role at Mckinsey. At ZS we get proper client side consulting role exposure but the mckinsey opening is more of a knowledge management type thing. So should I think of applying?

Went through 5 rounds of interviews just to get a “the needs for the team have unfortunately shifted, and we no longer have a need at this time. That said, if anything does change, I will keep you updated!” To say I’m discouraged is an understatement.
Hi. I'm a fresh MBA graduate from IIT-B with no prior work experience. This Covid has taken a toll on the opportunities for fresh graduates and I'm looking out for people who could guide me or refer me for the same.

I really want to try for baby no. 2 soon but now if I would start it would put me in my busiest month of January when the baby would be due.

I really want to start trying because I want my kids closer in age. My daughter turns 2 in July so I would like to start soon so they are 2.5-3 years apart. I don’t know

I know this probably not the best bowl but I’m curious to hear about potential gift ideas for my wife’s upcoming birthday?
