Applying for M7 next year. Stats on general are slightly above average, however EC is lacking. My mum had an accident and since I'm 19 I'm her (only) government appointed caretaker (includes finances, legal stuff, medical decisions, bills and other paperwork...). So every minute, that I'm not working, doing further training, or seeing friends I'm helping my mum. Is this something that can be taken into account for EC? Should I (still) improve my EC during the next 12 months?
What's the big hype with MBB? Fairly new to US work life, I'm an ML Engineer (technical client facing role at KPMG). I got recruiters reach out on LinkedIn on behalf of 2 of the 3 acronyms and the roles seemed to be mostly focused on PowerPoint decks creation. I don't have an MBA which I understand it's a prerequisite for hiring in these groups, though I have a PhD in Machine Learning from a big technical school in the US. Is it worth pursuing such exits, friends?
I'd love to get perspective on interviewing in consulting specifically with Deloitte and also life as a black employee there. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Hi CGians, I have recently joined Capgemini Invent and working in a support project. People are already onsite from my account and in my team all people are working here for more than 3- 4 years. So my chances of getting an onsite from here seems 0. What steps can I take to get on-site in the near future or how can I see switch projects for an onsite opportunity
Deloitte fish: what’s the policy for when business class seats are allowed for flights when traveling? International travel only? Does this kind of policy vary per project? E.g. McK consultants can buy biz class when their flight is 3.5 hours or greater. BGE is allowed when 1.5 hours or greater. What’s ours? Deloitte

Is anybody going through a L1 processing now? Had transferred out of US to APAC for 2 years for a project and my US Partners reached out to me recently with an offer (and they confirmed that my offer still holds good during these crazy times).

I love Paul’s writings. Some of my favorites are Romans 7 and 8. It’s specially amazing thinking of Paul, someone who you would think once he’s converted and receiving God’s word would have very little trouble fighting sin, but I’m reminded that Jesus would tell his disciples even after spending all day with him to watch and pray so they don’t fall into temptation. Below is my favorite from Paul and how honest he is on what he faces which I’ve felt and thought similar things:
My PMD was talking to a PE client with the respect as if he/she was a CEO. I later googled the client and turns out he's a 2nd yr PE VP out of HBS and is a year younger than me. I feel like shit. :(

Please tell me there are people who used to be okay at their job (in terms of creativity) in their early 20s and then became more creative with age? I just turned 24 and I feel like I am constantly surrounded by wunderkinds. My anxiety keeps telling me that if I haven’t figured it out by now, I will never be one of the greats.
American consultants who have switched to international offices: what made it worth it to you? I have an offer to join a European office. I find it super exciting, especially since I’ve not travel too much. But the pay is obviously much much lower, and COL is just as high as my current city.
