How is consulting recruiting from SOM?
A close friend of mine (also an atty) recently committed suicide and I feel completely lost. Her family doesn't want that publicly known so I can't even discuss the suicide with most of my friends/family, I just say she "died unexpectedly but we don't have many details." I feel like my grief is affecting my work productivity (compounding the pre-existing covid anxiety), but it feels weird to seek leave time to grieve for a non-family member's death. Anyone ever dealt with a similar situation?
Does a masters from Harvard Extension School come with the same perks, open the same doors as regular Harvard? I’m guessing there’s always going to be a difference but seems like a good deal (it’s cheaper than some state schools) with a semi-prestigious datapoint to add to the resume? Would love to hear from folks who’ve done it.

Background: 27 Afro Latino Male recently graduated from a State School with a Master’s Degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. After undergrad I worked at McKinsey for 2 years as an EA and was urged to get my graduate degree to pursue consulting. Now 1 year removed from graduation, I’m still having a hard time landing at a good firm. Would having orgs like PP and NAACP hurt me?

For McKinsey PEI, I was told I’ll be asked 1 question on leadership and 1 question on personal impact. I prepared 2 examples for each as recommended but these examples will only work if I’m asked generic questions like “Tell me about a time when you showed leadership” or “Tell me about a time you made personal impact”. Can someone from McK confirm if the questions asked will be more generic or specific?

Hello, we recently built out a technology team at our company. They are a phenomenal team with great work flow, rapport and collaboration however, most are junior in their career which can make it difficult for our senior lead to step away. They all receive professional dev allowances so we would like to work toward identifying possible future leads and laying out a growth plan. Do any of you have best practices, tips or resources in doing this specifically for tech talent?
Hello, did you guys notice that a post about Amy Cooper/feminist racism was taken down from the coronavirus thread. Seems like our peers get easily triggered when confronted by the truth. Have you thought about how that affects the badges we get on here? Have a hunch POC’s comments get taken down or are not “reacted” to as often as white people’s posts. I think the image below triggered non POCs on that thread. Thoughts? We can’t even speak our mind on this type of platform?
Does anyone have a connection at Leo Burnett? I'm super interested in a Senior Strategist position posted on Siftly, but I can't find the job listing on their career page, LinkedIn, etc.

Feeling underpaid for the work I’m producing and taking on. I recognize agencies notoriously under pay lower level employees, but I feel at this point I’m worth so much more. For context I have 2.5 years experience, in an AC role. To my knowledge we still aren’t passing out promotion and pay raises (ya know, COVID and all). Any advice? Do I start shopping around for a new spot?

1 year out of college, working in a large shopper marketing ad agency in Chicago and thinking about switching to PR. Any advice or opinions?
Lately, a lot of recruiters have been reaching out. I'm mostly happy in my role and w/my company (no longer w/Edelman), but one job caught my eye with a huge salary and title bump at a comparable company, culture and work wise. Interviews are going well - I'm torn about leaving - things are good now but some extra $$ for what seems like a similar experience seems like a no-brainer. Yet, I feel sad about potentially leaving my current company. Anyone have a similar experience? What happened?

Real Talk: Are panic attacks and crippling anxiety the new normal in PR and comms jobs? I’ve found myself lately to the point that I’m not sleeping, I’m working 15+ hour days, I’m experiencing panic attacks and crippling anxiety. It seems like many in our industry are going through this. Is this the new normal? Seems like now more than ever we should be looking to make a change in the industry and not normalize this.
