I’m in trading operations. I graduated during COVID and it has been my ultimate goal to become a trader. I know it’s insanely difficult to pivot from back office to trading but I would welcome any advice on making that transition.
This 4th of July has been the worst one in my whole life. I found out my significant other was cheating on me, my dog got really sick and now my pregnancy test came out positive...
People on here asking if it’s ok to take off time for the holidays or if they’re sick...seems like something may be wrong with this profession as a whole if these are common questions :(
Anyone been to Disneyland lately? Are there still long lines? My wife and I have been under a rock staying at home due to covid and having a newborn at home and being extra safe, but I wanted to take my wife to Disneyland for Halloween. Is it relatively covid safe there?
Looking for a Marketing Intern on out team! 13 weeks, paid, remote. Opportunity to check out our NYC office if you’re local, or get together in person with your mentor if in the RVA area - pending COVID. https://www.spinmastercareers.com/global/be/job/R786/Marketing-Intern
I was hoping the vaccine would help us get back to more normal, open, and less restricted activities. In some ways it has but since there are so many unvaccinated, is there any other way we’ll be able to move forward from this pandemic? P.S. I’m not trying to start a big argument, I’m genuinely just looking for the light at the end of this tunnel.
Does industry usually drug test for marijuana? In a medical state w/ a script from a doc. If so, do I just bring my prescription with me as if it were Xanax/adderal/ etc?
When did you start introducing solids? Paediatrician said today we should start at 5-5.5 months. This feels early and there is no medical reason.
I don’t have a tribe, but I’d like to have one. This lifestyle, pre-Covid anyway did a number on my social life. Maybe I watch too much tv but how are people finding their girlfriends? 😭 for reference I’m 26!
no swag bags this year for departing GSAPers, what’s even the point if i can’t rock a sick daddy D patagucci at b-school
Long post alert. Also, confusing post alert haha. So, I'm going to be divorced in the next few months and have 2 kids who'll be with me. Ever since this situation has been finalized, I'm becoming very conscious of our spend & have been tight about it. Covid has helped. But I noticed that even my grocery store bills are pretty high...like a single run to Meijer is $125+. Costco is like $200 or so. We've always had fresh fruits, nuts liberally used in our house. [Cont'd]
Seriously considering quitting and pursuing my true passion, which is in a totally unrelated field. Every time I look at an ad, I get sick. I’ve been considering this for the past 2 years. Is it time?
Moms, I have a 2 year old and a 3 month old. Everyone on my family is vaccinated. What are safe activities to do with these kiddos in the midst of all this covid variant environment. I thought about the pumpkin patch, hiking, the park, and walks as long as we distance from others. I just get nervous about catching colds or a breakthrough covid infection. I’m not paranoid, just risk averse. The whole family got the TSV bug a month ago, and it was miserable. Just trying to be practical, but not a
Egg retrieval for IVF tomorrow! COVID test came back negative and did the trigger shots last night. The hcg trigger that goes in the butt caused much consternation but ended up being a breeze. NO injections tonight yay!
I'm curious about a job doing something with medical devices or software. I have about 9 years experience as an EMT but only 3 as a developer, so I'm curious if that's something any employers are interested in. Anyone have any insight?
So umm whose’s going to tell him? Also not surprised over half the people in this pic have caught COVID.
For those who’ve had Covid, did your cough come and go? I’m having pretty bad coughing attacks in the morning but resolving itself by midday. Hoping it’s just allergy symptoms but wanted to see if anyone had a similar experience that turned out to be Covid
Hello fishes! Anyone has any referrals for a fresher's job? My brother is about to graduate but is having trouble getting placed. He has a pretty sick resume btw! Any and all help would be appreciated :)
How many sick leaves does ACN have?
My work was very understaffed prior to COVID. I hope the healthcare industry learns from this experience and increases staffing appropriately.
Best exits in Atlanta? Tech consultant with 6 yrs of consulting. What compensation should i target?
When the client pressures you into naming a date the audit can get done, and later that week you discover multiple serious issues that will require extended testing 😬
SM here - if my work visa is not renewed, would I be eligible for severance? Current non compete has 3 months of severance included
Is it a bad sign if they take longer to get back to you after a final round interview? Irrationally antsy about last Friday's results haha
I am H1B and I’ve started my GC process. my husband is also on H1B but won’t get his GC sponsored until his next job. What happens if he has started the GC process but by then his H1B had run out? Can he still work while it’s pending with an application for EAD? Can he work as H4 under my H1B till I get my GC issued?
There’s a company that I really want to work for in the future, is it possible to convince them I apply for my green card now and then join them once the EAD card comes in post-GC approval?
I don't get the point of getting an MBA. I feel like there's nothing b-school can teach you that you can't teach yourself... and networking is feasible without the help of an overpriced university.
Moving to Philadelphia. Can anyone shed some light on how much I should expect in terms of salary as a second year in external audit? I’m looking at top 25 firms.
Pulled an all nighter for the hell of it... has anyone ever done this? How did it affect your client work? Were you okay the next day?
All I want is HBS and to make Partner at MBB, followed by a leadership role in banking. I am such a basic brown girl. I tried a couple of Finance jobs, but as soon as I landed in consulting I was like stability and prestige, hallelujah. My parents didn’t even pressure me. So basic.
EY TAAG professionals, what is your experience. Team culture, type of projects, flexibility and hours. What is your experience?
I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.
Are MBB/consulting experience + technical masters (e.g., data science, CS) ever complementary when looking at exit opps, or are they too different to overlap (or, in other words, will the former have been a waste of time if pursuing the latter)?
Anyone successfully taken money out of 401k or IRA to use for downpayment? Is this a smart idea? I keep hearing for tax purposes it is but would love some insight and guidance. Currently have 15k in cash for downpayment but feeling a little uncomfortable with having just straight cash money and looking for options. TIA
Boarding the flight to ORD for the third time. Delayed 4 hours already. The one day when I had an approved early departure time to go home. Cmon Chicago. Help me out here.
We are a couple in early 30s, no kids but planning to have one in the next year. Currently living in Seattle and working in FAANG. If both our jobs become remote permanently we would like to relocate
Hi Fishes, I have got an offer from Wipro, was hired for an immediate requirement for some project named ELC. Does anyone know about this account? I confirmed from the HR that it is a support and development role and has only day shift. Just doubting the shift, I can't work in night shifts How is the work life balance in Wipro? Does they provide any reimbursement for WFH peripherals like Accenture does?
Has account management relinquished the role of brand custodian to planners, and is planning now the most highly valued and trusted client partnership? I’m my opinion (one guy with 35 years experience) a resounding YES.
