One of my current coaching clients told me “I have to interview for my job.” It’s not the first time I’ve heard of this happening in a re-org.

And what does it do to employee morale?

Hi All, Just needed some advice: I gave interview at Deloitte on 10th April and on 15th April I was asked to complete pre-hire survey and submit documents. After that there was silence of almost 1 month then I got call from Deloitte HR on 12th May and discussed salary and confirmed my candidature and told my joining date. After this I haven't got any response in mail - How long does it take them to roll out the official offer letter after oral confirmation? Any similar encounters?

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.

What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
