I remember when I was desperate for work out of school and UHY and BDO denied even giving me an interview. I remember one of the recruiters said I wasn’t good enough or I need to retake a few classes. Well, here I am doing amazing and almost manager at the number one firm in the world. Just wanted to say, only YOU can define your career. Only YOU can make things happen and only SOME will believe in you. I’m glad I’m here and under my local leadership. They truly believe in me.

Hey 🐠. Team is supposed to be off this wk, but instead is working M-W and the Partner said that this is a “PRD” week, meaning that we are not billing (getting utilization). Is this against policy?
