Consulting

Last two days at Accenture, part of the laid off batch. Feeling something is missing in the todo list before I leave. Suggestions please.

Honestly I am sorry for being a D***, thank them for the opportunity and if they happen to know anyone in their network ask for a referral and leave your contact to be in contact for opportunities down the line; never burn bridges. Also if I can help in anyway DM me

401k login info, shore up any espp and decide what to do with that, make sure you’re connected with everyone you want to be connected to on LinkedIn, if your one-pager and people page job descriptions are good, take screenshots of the wording so that so you can describe your role well for new interviews. Graciously send a goodbye e-mail to your team, how great it’s been to work with them/the company and your phone number so they can reach out if they want. Close the laptop and be proud of how you left. Best of luck.

Toyota and vw are doing it. I think I’ve seen other ads on tv too. VW is actually doing 4months no payment 0%. Check your local dealership sites under specials. My friend got a golf like this a few weeks ago but i think his was only 3months deferred not 4. They all need to move inventory.

Unless you're screaming from the rooftops the names of clients and telling everyone and their mother that you took your work with you...no one is going to know. I took my work with me and just scrubbed it of any sensitive data and made templates out of them.
