Risk is a lot of compliance/regulatory work, while MC opens the doors to Ops, M&A, Customer, etc. competencies - basically, MC is less boring and develops better transferable skills

Would you say why?

Cont.// If I would mind switching my application to risk, as I had a year of experiences and thus more probability of getting the position and ofc I said yes. Now that I am working, I still get the feeling I would love management even more however ai have no experience in it and I don’t know if its just me making things up in my mind. (My current engagement is around 10 months long so trying “mc” is not an option right now)

Would you please explain?

Adventures in Interviewing: Today we were wrapping up a pretty good interview with a strong potential candidate. When asked if they had any last questions, they said that they had an issue with our Work from Home policy (we’re 100% WFH right now, and will not consider a re-opening strategy until everyone is vaccinated). The candidate declared that they did not believe in vaccines, so we needed to allow her to be a permanent remote hire. I guess I’m glad about the dodged bullet, so there’s that.

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
