Why is it so hard to get placed on another project if everyone keeps saying the bench is so thin?
I recently heard a client talking about the sex wage gap as if it were real. I declined to engage since I didn't want to irritate the client. However, I thought this had been conclusively dispelled? There is no statistical disparity in pay for the same work between the sexes right? How do you correct this fallacy with a client? Is it worth it?
This is my first year at KPMG after graduating from school. I rejected another offer with a 6 figure to take this one as it's consulting. What is the average %raise or bonus you get at year end?

Currently on a project that has nothing to do with me. I understand developing a new skill set but I have no past experience that aligns with the scope and deliverables of the project. I've spoken with the PM and they say I'm still the best fit. I think it's just due to the firm being understaffed. Time to talk to my direct to get off that project? Thoughts?
Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run
I'm trying to be a core member of a big client service team. Partners are notorious for having terrible work life balance. They push teams to work 80-90 hour weeks and ask to have meetings on weekends like it's no big deal. They don't even ask when you're free, just choosing a time that works with the sr partner. How do you set boundaries when their expectation is that you're always available? I'm scared if I don't show up that I'll lose their support.
So a resource on the team decided to charge a significant number of hours to the project - beyond what would be expected for the work effort to date. I trust my resources to bill hours properly and...

Started a new role within my org <1 year ago (been with the co several years) and have received incredibly positive feedback from many people about my performance so far, including my manager. I expressed my desire to revisit my compensation (off-cycle) because I am by all accounts exceeding expectations for my role and my manager was very supportive and encouraged me to provide them with a write up of what I want and why. Any advice? I’ve researched salary comps already

I have an interview for social media strategist with a rising DTC startup in NYC. I’m feeling imposter syndrome, since I’ve never marketed such a big, hip company. What books can I read or courses can I take to come into the interview solid and prepared? Most of my marketing theory is based on Seth Godin books and reading psychology.
How would you describe the “it” factor when interviewing? Is it obvious when someone doesn’t have it, and is there anything I should avoid doing? I’m feeling pretty good about my PEI and casing skills, but want to avoid being that candidate that gets dinged for not having “it.” Thanks! 🙏🏼
