Consulting Exit Opportunities

Just wanted to vent- I work for Big 4. Applied for role that seemed really interesting. Weeks pass. No reply. SO who works at MBB and did not apply gets a message for same role: “want an interview?”😞

It’s a tougher transition than it needs to be for big4. Reach out to alums directly and get referrals from friends at those companies, it helps!

No problem, I’m at big tech firm now and know the struggle ... it took me months ... my MBB friends who got counseled out in less than 2 years basically had a seat waiting for them at my company. 😑!

OP, I do not mean "did." I mean "do." What DO you expect from life? Sometimes people work hard their entire lives for something and never achieve it, while others have that very thing fall into their laps without even trying. It happens and it sucks but you honestly can't expect anything different. All you can do is try to improve and keep trying, but that still doesn't mean you'll get it. However, with that attitude I can certainly see why you didn't get a response...

I recently left my job and I have a month gap in health insurance coverage with my new employer. My COBRA cost for my wife and I will be over $1,000 for 1 month. We’ve had the high deductible plan at my previous employer and really only go for annual check ups. Is there anything else on the market that could be cheaper for just 1 month?
