Hi there! I’m being vetted for a position that I’d have to relocate for, they mentioned they’d pay for relocation. This would be my first role in senior leadership, and I’m just looking for tips on negotiating pay and other components of my offer letter. I’ve previously had an issue where I was brought in way under value, and it took 2 years to get a benchmarking raise. I just want to position myself highly upfront this time. Any ideas other than base pay I could and should negotiate? Thanks!
I’ve been with my creative partner since we started (3.5 years ago). We just interviewed at my dream agency together and I want to reach out to said agency and let them know I’d be more interested in a position without my current partner. I know it’s risky but there’s very little chance we’ll get this job anyways, so why not right? Right??

Have two offers and unsure which to take. Ex Big 4 and have done software startups since. Option 1: Director role back in Big 4. Good package. Good fit with my area of expertise, focusing on tech solutions and partnering with startups. Working across all industries and clients. Option 2: Big Tech/GAFAM (level = L6 google/e6 FB/65 Microsoft, which I’m told is Director equivalent) Even better package. Account Technology Strategist. Less client diversity but using breadth of their tech.

Deloitte CEO just announced vaccine mandates
Big law specialist with an offer to be the CFO and GC of a 250M AUM hedge fund. All in comp would probably be ~$300k, so about $100k less than where I would be in big law (including bonus). Potential to get involved in the business side, but most likely more of a back office role (I would also be the only legal hire - main goal would be cutting outside legal cost and streamlining processes). Does this sound like an attractive offer? What exit options would I have?
So the Co-Chair of the Deloitte Black Action Council was not a Black woman but an Indian Woman who is now the Chief Diversity Officer. I feel a little duped and bamboozled. As a Black American this person does not share our history with slavery, Jim Crow, etc. I don’t think anything will come of this council. I wonder are black initiatives will become an all minority initiative. Is Black hiring going to increase. Will more blacks be considered for senior management up to partner positions

Hey guys, Looking for a new role in the IT field. I am currently a Quality Services Manager at Amazon. The new role does not need to be in management, I would be open to consulting.

How is M&A advisory different from Transaction Advisory? I left audit bc it felt very meaningless and had awful work life balance. Now I’m looking for a new role and wondering what the two above are like.
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.

I am facing one of the most wild shifts in mindset ever — i always thought i wanted to be this super accomplished career driven woman, but all i care about these days is making enough money to buy more real estate and retire asap. I feel like a hypocrite some days, and somedays i’m willing to sacrifice job interests for higher salary and just get to my goal of early retirement though real estate. Can someone please tell me i’m not going crazy :( this duality is weird to deal with.

How do you guys construct your cover letters? I’ve been applying to a bunch of places with no response, so I really don’t know what works. Been trying to find ways to make it stand out. Go into how I love their work (even when I think it’s meh) and speak to more than what’s on my resume. In your opinion, is this more of the time to just talk business - my accomplishments, experience, and why that helps?
What’s your take on the impact immigration laws have had on so many of our people? Seems like many of the good ones are looking at exit opportunities due to the uncertainty of the whole situation.
What's a good chair for my bedroom for WFH? I have a nice basic desk from Amazon but their chairs don't seem to be revered.
Month 5 of 20/4 intermittent fasting. Down 25 pounds to ~170 lbs (stabilized there) M/53. WFH was hard but keeping fridge and cupboards from temptations (and still no booze for three months) has helped. It can be done--miss ice cream! but eating healthy in the 4-hour window. Two cups of black coffee/lots of water btw 9 pm and 5 pm. Doable folks. Don't give up. But am not exercising from home (just long walks 2x a week) due to intense work. Need to but hard to get back on exercise saddle.

Acn fish - Looking for the date when we can quit and still collect our bonus in November (if there is one)? I would most likely stay until it hits my account just to be safe, but wondering if that’s really unnecessary.
