I’ve been trying to move to finance and I’m getting plenty of interviews but lack of real world modeling experience has been a huge limitation for me. Any recommendations on a quick modeling certification? I have the fundamentals down but I think I just need to credential myself

Hi everyone,

I was affected by layoffs about a month ago and urgently looking for a good immigration lawyer.

There is a lot of noise and wrong information going in the market so looking for good recommendations. 

I have very little time left for my grace period to end and need a consultation soon. Thanks

Hi everyone,
I want to have a career advice. I have recently started a full time job in gaming industry for 2 months as a jr manager. Previously i never worked in this industry nor in this position were i am working now. I am trying my best to do the tasks but its really hard. I am not liking it at all. I don’t have much resources to learn it online also. I am struggling and having a bad day almost everyday. What to do? Losing the energy to look for other job after work. Its only 2 months…

So I have few question( Please answer these questions are asked by most of the freshies)
1) After document submission , How much time do they take to release offer letter for freshers ? Its been month for me not received till now
2) How is growth opportunities for fresher member technical.
3) Is there any relocation reimbursement (or any other benefits)
4)Is there free food available
5) will they give macbook to fresher or which laptop

What’s the value of people with an MBA, who already work in consulting, getting a PMP/lean six-sigma cert? Seems pointless, or am I missing something ?

I’ve had radio silence from a small investment bank for about a week now. I’ve completed several rounds of interviews, but last Thursday the firm reposted the job I’ve been interviewing for. On Friday the headhunter said that they’re not sourcing new candidates and it’s probably just LinkedIn automatically refreshing the listing. She said they had a busy week last week but will make a final decision this week - is the delay and radio silence a bad sign or is this typical for experienced hiring?
