Have an offer for $110K pre-tax in consulting and have the option to choose between Boston, DC, Seattle, and San Francisco. I prefer East Coast but which cities would allow me to save the most versus the least? Trying to understand cost of living in these cities, 27M Single, just FYI.

Hi Atlanta fishes, I’m moving to Atlanta in coming months and looking for your advice & recommendations for neighborhood and apartment search prior to in-person visit soon. Background & factors: - Male / single / age 30 (I like city life and going out yet prefer relatively calm place during weekdays than too much exposure to crowd & street noise) – heard ATL midtown isn’t too loud anyways - For monthly rent (1BD or studio), I would prefer $1800~$2000 range but can afford up to ~$2100+ (cont’d)
MCO, 6a Sunday. Must have been a rough night
The only thing I’m looking forward to at EWR:
30F, thinking about separating from my marriage and looking at cities I could move to.

I make 120k right now & I’d prob take the dog with me. TIA! 💚💜

Thinking of switching from delta to American, am I crazy? I fly from LGA as my home airport. But like the American network and find flights are consistently cheaper when I’m searching for personal travel. I normally get silver/gold status depending on the year. Is my American experience going to be good?

What have been your experiences with panel style interviews for a Senior PM role? I have two coming up, but I have never had to interview with more than one individual at a time. Would appreciate insight about what you've experienced and questions you have been asked. Thanks!
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Hey y’all, what are some good exit opportunities to look for in Canada? Some context: I’m a healthcare consultant without a clinical background, but I really don’t love the work I’m doing. Not interested in joining the public sector and unfortunately there aren’t too many startups or interesting tech companies in the healthcare/life sciences space in Canada. Any thoughts?

So, what if your kid is in a 6 person Montessori class with no interaction outside of their “pod”, serious disinfection and prevention practices and all the other parents are super socially conscious and aware. 2 teachers per classroom and no infections during summer school on campus. Yay or nay?
Curious as to what the views on canibas (medical & recreational use) are in the finance industry. From what I've seen, it's a stigma compared to alcohol, but maybe it just appears that way?
Anyone else care more about getting into a top grad school (ivy- MIT-Stanford) more to please your grandparents and overseas relatives than the career benefits? I feel a weight has been lifted as the eldest sibling
