hi all! using a moniker for privacy reasons - i’m a graduate consultant at a boutique shop in Sydney ~3 months of experience after a bachelors in business from UTS (graduated earlier this year). my 485 expires in Oct 2024, and i’m keen to stay back after that - can anyone who’s been there done that share some things that i can start doing to help my chances of being sponsored? this might include things i can do on the job as well as other options like networking.. thanks!
Just out of morbid curiosity: do they really chase after you for the remainder of your pro-rated sign-in bonus if you leave earlier than anticipated? What if you get laid off?
As a Canadian citizen, can I work in the US-based corporations in internal strategy roles? TN visa list doesn’t explicitly call that category out but I’ve seen on LinkedIn that people have managed to do so.
Transitioned from my first job (in-house at large tech company) to a boutique firm where "quality" is king. Problem is, every partner/client has their own idea of what "quality" is.
Feeling like I'm starting over brand new, and the stress is really getting to me. Everyone at my old job told me I was at the top quality-wise, but the partners at the firm all tell me it's going to be 2 years before I'm really confident/comfortable. I'm a 6th year. Is this normal? Having bad imposter syndrome.
This is a kind of funky question but I need as many ears as I can get - are you still doing safeguard forms or symptom check forms in your offices? How is your RTO process evolving from a legal protections standpoint?
I think our HR team wants to get “back to normal” and get rid of most of our guardrails but I’m having trouble ascertaining the evolving risk.
Just wanted to check , is it mandatory for BCN (Bain Capability Network) employees to begin hybrid working model from 3 Jan'22 , since we didn't receive any official information.
Any inputs on same ??
Day rates suggestion for Strategic Design (design research) and Innovation Consulting freelance type of work. West coast, greater Los Angelos, 10 years of experience. Think: 1) workshops with the client’s customers designing and defining future scenarios. 2) taking up the human-centered design part of their product. Q1) The potential client is a small start up, therefore I wonder if I should adjust the day rate as they are in their starting phase. Q2) bigger workshops, higher rates? Thanks!

Incoming first-year litigation associate starting remotely next month. Any general tips and tricks you all have learned during this virtual period?
Also, if there are any 2009 law grads that had their start date delayed, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
My brain sort of feels like mush, and I know my legal writing and probably some other skills have declined. In other words, I feel less smart than I felt while in law school and am nervous about starting in Jan after a 5 month break.
Does anyone have any advice for supporting and coping with someone going through withdrawal? My husband is trying to quit his weed addiction and he has been irritable and mean since he quit. His mood is erratic and he is constantly annoyed w me. I don't even know how to bring this up without setting him off.

Does anyone here use LinkedIn for prospecting, and have success with it? I have Premium, and I send dozens of messages per week, and if I’m lucky one person will respond. And most of the people I message work for companies that are already purchasing from us, but there’s no business relationship. Super frustrating.
The other question is: how many of you receive unsolicited messages on LinkedIn and just ignore them?
