Hey Fellow Fish. Just wanted to get your thoughts around launching a strategy/tech blog and whether I could use this as a point of conversation when I'm pursuing exit opps (as a supplement to exp)
FAANG fish - just got an interview from Facebook for a project management role. I've been looking for a change but not sure if PM is the route I want to go. Is this a respectable, well paying position

Hey folks - Does anyone have any recommendations for online tutors, coaches based in India in the technical space that I could connect and pay on an hourly basis? I'm looking to connect with someone to help me fill in the knowledge gaps that I'm going to encounter at a new work role in AWS Azure cloud /solutions architect/DevOps space.I'm mostly self learning but if I could brainstorm with a tutor or coach I feel it would be more effective.

Anyone ever taken an internal role at their firm doing more consulting type work for the firm/corporate functions type work? How was it? Were you able to transition back to a client facing role...
Someone I used to work with at another firm wants a referral for a role to manage my team. I don’t want to report to them, but if I refuse to refer and they get hired any way, it wouldn’t look good.
Are any top consulting firms hiring for experienced analysts currently? I know ACN and some others are cyclical for resources 2-3 years out of college, but I’m looking to make a move sooner than fall
Hello 🐠. Have been extended an offer for an industry role without an onsite interview. I completed 3 rounds of telephonic/video based interviews. Is this suspicious or normal? Any inputs appreciated!
My friend referred this girl to me that's looking for a job. Her email to me said she's looking for a position in consulting. She's currently a nanny, and listed "diapering" as a skill... #icanteven
Anyone move over into an internal role, decided you liked it, and stated internal as a career path, or used it to move to another function other than the traditional “consulting” career path?
New Zealand 🐠, American here interested in a role at Northpower in Whangarei. Any advice on how to make this happen considering Covid and being a foreign applicant?
I don't know about you guys, but I haven't seen any colleague take an exit opp that I would have taken...
I’m surprised so many of you want to “exit to FAANG” - I find Facebook/Amazon/Google to be pretty despicable companies - Apple has questionable moral standards when it comes to making their products, Netflix seems like the best of the bunch.
Has anyone ever do a side hustle or part time job while in a long term travel role? What have you done? Did it work out for you?
When you have personal international travel, do you usually buy international health insurance coverage? I'm abroad already and only have my work UNH plan
My agency technically has unlimited PTO but our managers quietly disapprove of the policy. It’s the kind of place where people make you feel guilty for taking it... (cont)
If you awake from a dream where you were planning client work (designing a deck, developing strategy, etc.), can you bill the time?

Thoughts on a team member who gets a hotel every week so he can get points, but stays with his SO every night (doesn't even drop his bag at the hotel)? This is LA so hotels aren't exactly cheap
I've done 6 months as an intern post-grad and currently 2 months into my FT role but I'm really starting to feel like consulting might not be my thing. Would you suggest I toughen it out for another 4 months to hit the 1 year mark, or can I only count 12 months fte when hunting for jobs? I feel like it's really taking a toll on my mental health. Thanks for your suggestions.
My Facebook feed included a promoted message from PwC's Tim Ryan wherein he reiterated the firm's commitment to D&I. It's all a gesture and it's not my firm, but it made me happy to read.
Are there any healthcare PR agencies who are open to hiring those with little to no experience but who are really interested in learning? I would be interested in transitioning from B2B / tech / advertising into healthcare and taking a lower title, but a couple recruiters have told me most do not want to train incoming talent. I totally understand of course, but wondering if an SAE applying for a lower title in a field they don’t have a ton of experience with is appealing at all.
I am not sure if ACN below is just really excited for Christmas or if he/she has tech disability or if the OP is fishing for points? 🤔
Since the pandemic I’ve been living at home so I have some extra money to play with... “play”. I have a good bit of credit card debt so I figure I should pay it down as much as possible. 2 questions: 1) with the extra $ should I save 50% and put 50% toward CCs? 2) should I pay the cards off or down to 30%?
