🐟🐠friends. Theoretically POTUS is scheduled to give the State of the Union or do the Joint address to congress on Feb. 28. What do you think he is going to say? (Points for creativity)

Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run
Lessons from GoT - fake it till you make it - really good people will either be put on shitty projects or chose to leave - partners will consider everything except improving lives of people

Used an excuse Monday for one interview and have another on Friday but feel like I’d be super shady to come up with another “my pipes burst” thing. Do I just take a personal day or other suggestions?
So true. I have gotten a lesson for life.
Fellow 🐠 in MBB - there is a belief in a few consultants that being a part of MBB is the main goal at any cost. Being on the inside and having seen, through this application or your networks, what other firms do, do you think this belief is healthy?

My husband works abroad and with the travel ban he is unable to come to UK. He needs me over there but my company doesn’t have an office in his country with roles open. And I’m not fluent in the local language.
