One method I’ve found helpful in developing solid “soft skills” in Big 4 consulting is to deeply educate myself across the field of social engineering. The book I started with first was, “Human Hacking” by Chris Hadnagy. The applicable knowledge I’ve gained has been invaluable. Way more valuable than anything I read from “Trusted Advisor” guidance. Thoughts?

I haven’t read Human Hacking but sounds awesome.

I was a big fan of Confidence by Jack Nasher, it really helped me to understand how to apply the soft skills I learned and leverage to my advantage. Sadly sometimes we tend to tell the truth too much with adhd rather than boosting our own position.

Hello all! I am currently in a rut as I am having some trouble finding my next role. As a quick background, I previously worked on the written discovery team as a legal assistant (mass tort litigation to be exact). I am trying to figure out my next step, but my last role kept me in a specific bubble as my knowledge revolves around WD and case management. Does anyone have have any advice on finding the next opportunity that understands the skills that I have while also willing to teach?
