Anyone has insights into whether we can claim depreciation for our “home office” due to WFH? Not an expert here but looks like it’s for self employed individuals only, but maybe the individual tax experts in this community can help everyone out a bit 🤪

Hello RSM coworkers! I am thrilled to be moving to RSM into a Scheduler roll. I just found out yesterday and want to be as prepared as possible in the next steps.
So here are my questions.
How long does the background study take? I'm guessing admin staff have a study that is faster and less complicated than someone in Tax ect.
When training at home what did you need that wasn't supplied by RSM? My home office is well stocked but I want to be as prepared as possible.
Thanks in advance!

I’m looking into ultra wide monitors to use for home office. I thought it might be cleaner to do a dual screen instead of having two separate monitors. For this purpose, should I be looking at 32:9 ratio monitor, or is 21:9 ratio sufficient?

Quick question: if you are still regularly WFH since the start of the pandemic has your company compensated you in anyway for your home office? (Internet, printer, desk, etc)
My new firm is giving me a choice between PC or Mac. Work will be a lot of Excel, PPT, research, and video calls. Which should I get? I have two external monitors (Dell / Acer) but sounds like they would provide an extra monitor if I wanted.
Has anyone tried Varier chairs? Are they more ergonomic than Herman Miller or Autonomous etc?

Hi, I am looking to be referred into some top consulting firms. I am a Project Coordinator at Nielsen with 1 YOE. I have applied thru various job portals but the application does not seem to be viewed or going forward. Would be really helpful if my fellow fishes can refer me. I will be happy to discuss further on this and share my CV. Have a good day!
I’m looking for a new job and have found that small companies send me rejections quickly and the huge companies are the only ones giving me a chance. I thought it would be the other way around. I really just want a new job and I think I’ll have more luck passing the interviews for smaller companies than the big ones. Any recommendations on how to make myself more appealing to smaller companies? Thank you I need a new job ASAP :(

What an inspirational mother.

Why do some people see liberal arts degrees as useless? Saw an earlier post where many bashed the liberal arts. As someone who both interviews and manages undergrad hires, I haven’t seen a big difference between say a philosophy major, a business major, or an engineering major. While there are technical jobs that need specific skills, most entry level consulting, finance, and industry roles don’t. It boggles my mind how someone would say they would pick accounting over liberal arts every time.
