If I know I don’t want to stay in my team in the long run - is there any point in me staying there until I make M, or do I look for alternative teams internally?
Can't find the link to the TikTok video but this is so on point. 😂 https://www.deadlinenews.co.uk/2021/06/07/1165490-student-praised-for-his-too-accurate-impression-of-british-adverts-entertainment-news-uk/
Can you legally start a new job during your two week notice period? I won’t be on a project and would be ok if they asked me to just leave right away. But want to offer the two weeks as courtesy.
I am currently taking PTO for the week (first vacation in over a year) and I cannot relax… I’m even stressed about not being relaxed enough lol. Can’t stop thinking about going back to work and dealing w personal matters when I’m home. Any words or advice? (Yes I know this sounds dumb, I feel dumb for it)
I am currently going through 3rd round of interview at a tech firm and I’m not sure if the employer is aware that I need visa sponsorship - should I check with HR? I don’t think there was a screen for visa sponsorship
Does anyone have a perspective on the meaningful differences between strategic advisory/commercial diplomacy firms in terms of their work and organizational culture. Specifically, McLarty Associates vs. Albright Stonebridge Group vs. The Asia Group vs. Rice Hadley Gates & Manuel LLC, etc.
My friend just had a traumatic birth in NYC (lives in queens). Any good food services in NYC I could use to send pre packaged dinner or something?
can you still join pe from consulting if you go to industry first then start over at entry level?
I anticipate getting a low interest 24 month loan (hoping 0%) next year of about 15k.
I am currently living "paycheck to paycheck" (after maxing retirement accounts). But I have cash savings from inheritance in a HYSA: 15k emergency fund + 20k excess cash.
I can afford to pay the loan in full immediately, but assuming low rate, I don't plan to. What's the best strategy here? I can't just invest my 20k excess cash because I live paycheck to paycheck and can't afford the minimum payments (cont)
For anyone who has really enjoyed adjusting, what did you also really enjoy after that? I want to move up in my career but I have found a lot of enjoyment adjusting. I just know that can’t be it forever because I need to learn, grow and make more money. And a break from adjusting 🤣

Hi fellow fishes,
I worked in consulting for 6 years with Accenture, Capgemini in India.
I moved to US and got my H4 EAD in December 2021.
While all the major clients I worked for in these 6 years were from NA region, but head-hunters told me to start from associate level as my previous work experience outside US doesn't matter.
I have been job hunting for 2 months now, are there any relevant pointers you guys would want to share!!
Anyone looking for jobs at B4? Happy to make a referral for pretty much any experience level.
Ordering meal prep and brining it with me has literally saved my life! I went to team dinner last night & didn’t feel guilty 🙌🏼 little wins
Can any ladies share their experience? My Annual women’s exam showed cancerous cells in my cervix. Did a colposcopy and Dr said I’d likely have to do a leep procedure. Has anyone experienced this? Was it painful? Did your follow ups show clear results? Im really scared
apparently staffing agency recruiters don’t like it when freelancers comment/share Linkedin job posts to thier freelance network. They want us to go through their agency only.
sorry Russell Tobin 😆

McKinsey & Company fish, thinking about applying to a cyber risk analyst position. The posting asks for 1YoE (which I have) but was curious if anyone know what the interview process looks like since it’s not a standard management consulting role.
Anyone know what I should be expecting?
Newer to ZS, but my old team almost never had cameras on during meetings...getting used to having it on most of the day now, but it’s SO exhausting. Just had the thought it would be so nice if companies would prohibit AM camera use in general meetings, thoughts?
AlixPartners fishes need some guidance ! I went through the recruiting process for the digital practice earlier this year. Over 9 interviews/ discussion/ tests etc. the feedback was good but was not offered a job due to COVID uncertainties. Recruiter said the firm is interested in hiring me when things pickup.I recently sent a note to the recruiter asking if she has any updates, she said no new updates at this time. Last Friday I saw 3 new opening for the same role, what should I make of this !

Got an interview for a non-Tech role at Amazon Prime Video (data and insight). Anyone have any experience with the interviews for these roles at FAANG?
Does anyone have experience with joining a small company? A company I’ve never heard of before (200-400 employees) reached out, has been around for just under a decade, and is offering a 30% raise in total comp. What kinds of questions can I ask to vet this more? Their Glassdoor reviews are good.
