I’ve been teaching elementary for 25 years and have a 15 and 17 year old boys. Teenagers have been harder than expected. I would love to teach high school right now to compare.

Anyone here working at Redhat? Looking for a referral, I did Big 4 and MBB.


Just had an interview for industry. Didn't have that warm fuzzy feeling after it like "I'm gonna get this job". UGH. I flubbed 1 question about a go to market strategy and it was downhill from there


Anyone used Botox to treat TMJ/teeth-grinding? My dentist said i should get a mouth guard and potentially do some physical therapy. I seem to be doing a lot of clenching/teeth grinding in the night. I was googling other options and came across a suggestion for Botox. I already get Botox in my forehead for cosmetic purposes so I'm not worried about Botox generally, but unsure how common it is in the jaw for this medical purpose.

My interview for an internship lasted over an hour. Good or bad sign? It was more of a conversation than anything...

After reading many annual reports, I am really getting tired of the fact that female management board members are always HR. Often that’s the only female member. Gender equality has long way to go


Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..." It really comes across as tone deaf and completely patronizing. I appreciate the efforts to diversity (albeit forced), but Partners really need to learn how to not be so supercilious in the approach. You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.


My manager doesn’t seem to have any boundaries - always saying yes to additional unnecessary work from the client and always working through weekends/nights/PTO/holidays. They are supportive of encouraging everyone else to have a WLB but since they don’t lead by example it ends up making me feel like I’m doing something wrong or crossing a line whenever I set a boundary with them or push back on a request that doesn’t align with our goals or priorities


Did Netflix set the House of Cards release for tomorrow to prevent us from binge watching over the holiday weekend?


How do you guys feel about design tests during the interview processs? Do you think it’s effective?


Has anyone done a math lesson on the growth and analysis of the corona virus? If so how did you present it and what resources did you use?


need advice. I have been working in an interim role as a portfolio manager. I was promised that the role would be mine. However, after doing the job for 2 months, I have been advised that we might not get the funding for the role and I might not get the raise and the title but my responsibilities will be the same. Its a political minefield. How should I back out elegantly that I need to be compensated fairly and competitively from this mess without burning any bridges

Can anyone give more color on the difference between what the “focus” interview and the “behavioral” interview entails for a consultant . Coming in laterally and recruiter didn’t provide much detail! thanks


I spoke to a Senior Manager earlier today and she told me they are looking to hire experienced and qualified candidates who have the below requirements: 1) Bachelor’s degree 2) CPA certification 3) 3-7 years of Accounting or Audit experience 100% remote. Then, post COVID traveling will vary. Please, if you meet the above requirements or know someone who does and is interested in joining Deloitte send me a private message. I will have you send your resume and I will forward to Senior Manager.

The new Delta Comfort+ system is KILLING me.


In the interview process for 2 companies. Having a really hard time staying motivated in my current job. I’m feeling so impatient. And want to exit so bad. How do I handle this?
