Help! I am 6’1” tall with long legs and long feet .... and it seems like my “go to online store” for tall pants/slacks (32”-34” inseam) as well as shoes (size 14M) has shuttered (Long Tall Sally). I would love any suggestions for either tall clothes and/or shoes. Even a place to buy custom shoes at this point - I am desperate! My slightly too small size 13 Tory Burch sandals are just not going to cut it during the colder months, even given COVID 🤪 Thanks in advance!

Has anyone filed a NIE and got it approved for their parents? I just had a baby and my parents are in India .. had to cancel their trip due to the travel ban
Me on a 6am Zoom meeting
I’m a first year and fucked up big time. The client doesn’t know about this but a senior associate was furious. I know it’s 100% my fault but no one above me actually reviewed my work bc everyone was so busy. But then I found out the senior gave a rant about how I fucked up to another colleague. When I apologized to him, he was really salty. Since then, my heart drops every time I see his email bc I’m too scared. He is usually pretty emotional and his instructions are vague, which doesn’t help.
Discussing exit opportunity with Director IT level role in DC area. What's ideal base, bonus, stock for this kind of role?
Hi there! I have a remote, freelance, part time position for a project manager at one of our brands - this is at least a 3 month gig with the option for it to go much longer term if there’s interest on both sides. Between 20-25 hrs a week, great for a parent or someone that wants to re-enter the workforce. To apply:
I'm in the best relationship I've been in. We had a chat about life goals and long term plans. We align on everything except children. He definitely wants them and I am undecided. I had a childhood that makes me terrified of being a mother. To be clear I get on with children, have taught in primary school and volunteered in orphanages. I am very caring and take great care of a dog. I'm just afraid of the role of motherhood and that my needs will disappear. Anyone have advice?

Thinking about getting into valuations. Anyone have any insights about this path in Big4 and in industry? Specifically I’m wondering: 1) what’s the scope of work like at Big 4? (Is the service line split into industry sector groups, or do some groups do Valuation for tangibles and another does intangibles) 2) how are the hours like? Working 9am - 3am consistently? 3) what exit opportunities exit after the Big 4 experience? 4) how does Compensationfor HCOL seniors/ manager look this year?
Have anyone transferred H1b visa to capgemini recently? I am planning to accept the offer from them but at the same time having fear on H1b transfer.please advise.thank you.
Hi all! Looking for advice! Im starting at an MBB out of undergrad (interned at D). Met my cohort and coworkers tonight at happy hour. Everyone’s super nice but I can’t help but feel drained. A partner probably noticed that I was nervous and actually pulled me aside to tell me it’s ok etc. I’m obv grateful for the opportunity but just worried i will be seen as too introverted or not confident enough and be a problem in front of clients. My MBTI type is also “not consultant-y”. Any advice? TIA!

If you've recently been laid off or furloughed and we've worked together in the past or I know you personally, don't hesitate to get in touch and let me know so I feel better knowing I’m employed and you’re not - Can I put you in touch with sleazy recruiters? - Can I write a LinkedIn recommendation for you since those help land high paying jobs? I copied this post from a connection, and I encourage others to copy it from me. You are in this alone.
