My boyfriend of 3 years broke up with me yesterday (he moved back home recently, we were doing long distance, and he decided he wanted to focus his time on rebuilding relationships with family/friends he lost touch with). Do any of you have tips of coping with heartbreak while also trying to manage work? I have too much on my plate to take time off, but I’m worried my focus isn’t going to be there on Monday.

Take a sick day, i did because my mind wasnt there and i needed 24 hrs to cry it out so i can actually work the following day

I know you said taking off is not an option, but can you work asynchronously? During a hard family time I found it was really helpful to work in the evenings/early mornings when I didn’t have to talk to people and could just focus on something besides my situation, but didn’t have to put on a face

Took today off to process some emotional trauma. I have too much on my plate too but what’s the point if you can’t focus? It’s okay to take a day or two for your mental and emotional health!

I’ve been interviewing for a position at EY . The role I applied for and was referred for is a Senior Consultant. However, when I’ve been receiving emails for interview scheduling confirmation I’ve noticed it only says Consultant. Is there a difference between Consultant and Senior Consultant at EY or are they the same? What’s the pay difference for both, if there is one? I just want to make sure they’re not trying to bump me down from the level I actually want to be considered for. Thanks!

MD or MBA? I got into both. I know most will say choose the MD, but hear me out: MD: I'd have to go into a specialty to have a good IRR given my salary & the $200K+ debt.

That could be the future here, too. MBA: 1 yr. Europe. I'd make about 15-20% more vs. now.
