I once interrupted a board meeting on a client site because there was an actual fire in the building. Everyone stared at me like I was crazy. No really there is an actual fire in the mechanical room. Everyone looked at me like I was crazy. No really... We all need to leave. The fire Dept is on the way. Still nothing... Fair enough. Good luck with the smokey death. Standing outside whilst fire Dept puts out fire the CEO looks at me and asks why I wasn't serious enough

Hello Fishes, I have been trying to apply the the Agile Project Manager Scrum Master position with Accenture for a few days now. However the job portal has been taking me around in an endless loop of 'Job search - Application - we have your CV - Apply through Job Search' without actually processing the application against any of the positions! Is someone else facing a similar issue? Or can please someone who has successfully navigated this Chakravyu help me out here! Thanks in advance

I have just over 2 years experience in consulting, I am focussed on FS clients but still a generalist for the most part and I’m not truly enjoying consulting.

However, I’m wondering what other types of roles could work for me? (I realise there are so many options but I just have no idea and so don’t know what to look for!) Would appreciate any and all ideas!
