Just wanted to give a big virtual hug and thank you to this group! About a week ago I asked for advice on contacting a client about her very interesting work. Just wanted to say that because of everyone's advice and support, I emailed her.... and it was AWESOME! We had an hour zoom chat and she is just super cool! 😊 So thank you ladies for giving me the confidence to just do it!

Anyone feel super awkward around their team when they’re trying to develop you? My manager and leadership keep telling me that they see me owning the workstream I’m on soon and that I’ll be managing the project in the future and that I have big things ahead for me at the firm. The problem is that I’m job searching now and haven’t told any of them and it’ll be super awkward when I leave.

Hi fam, I need some advice. I have an offer to leave consulting to go to a “startup” I’m really excited about.

No room to negotiate TC so that’s off the table. I’ve interviewed for a few FAANG roles (which didn’t work out for a mix of reasons) with TC much higher than...

Looking for advice. I’m currently interviewing for a position that pays $20k more than I make now. It seems like the job would not be giving me much for my portfolio and may have some work/life balance issues (but tbh what agency doesn’t). I’ve got piles of student loan debt. I’m only in year 2 of my career. Do I take this job for a year, deal with the downsides, pay off a huge chunk of my debt, then get back to fun stuff? Or will it hurt my career to have a portfolio gap?
