I've been out of accounting for about 2 years because I decided to move to another country for life experiences. I will be moving back mid 2022 with my fiance and will go back to Audit most likely. My firm said they would gladly take me back when I left. If i was making 65k as a senior 2 years ago is it reasonable to ask for 72k and a 10k signing bonus even with a 2 year break? Would it be more reasonable if I went to a different firm instead? How much do you think is reasonable?
Do I still get Marriott points / nights when booking through firms travel agency (adelman)?

I’m about to receive a $10k signing bonus and am looking to take advantage of this dip. Any recommendations? I’m thinking of throwing 1/3 of the $10k into BTC, 1/3 into ETH, and the rest into alts (I’m thinking MATIC and AMP). Current portfolio is BTC, ETH, and OMG. Any suggestions you all have would be appreciated!
With Michael Thomas out, who would you replace him with in a PPR league today, TY Hilton or Emmanuel Sanders? Like Sanders but worried about Brees after 4 weeks off.
Bought a rental property last year and paid points to get the rate down. Should I try refinancing? I looked at Better Mortgage but my principle amount was too low for them to give me any offers. Wonder if it's worth to continue looking.
Has anyone successfully used the Marriott Friends and Family code? Do they always check for a form on arrival?

Let’s say one of us gets laid off. Does it benefit our search in relation to opportunities through LinkedIn contacts if we don’t update our employment status? Does it hurt? Does it matter?
Genuine question: What are the most common exit options at Google BizOps? (1) For internal transfer to PM, those teams seem to prefer to hire Google engineers. (2) For internal transfer to Chief of Staff, why those teams don’t promote their own Strategy & Op folks? (3) For BizOps internal promotion, there are not many Director positions. (4) For leaving Google, I don’t know where people usually go… Please share your thoughts / correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!
I spoke to a Senior Manager earlier today and she told me they are looking to hire experienced and qualified candidates who have the below requirements: 1) Bachelor’s degree 2) CPA certification 3) 3-7 years of Accounting or Audit experience 100% remote. Then, post COVID traveling will vary. Please, if you meet the above requirements or know someone who does and is interested in joining Deloitte send me a private message. I will have you send your resume and I will forward to Senior Manager.
So many intern candidates leaning heavily on their sorority/fraternity experience even when they have had previous internships. Thoughts?
Recently transitioned to a startup and my confidence has skyrocketed. Presenting, interviewing, making my point heard are SO much easier when I’m working with colleagues and not clients who I feel don’t want me there. For those who struggle with confidence, there is hope!
