I stand corrected. I am remote. It's spring break for this consultant. It's odd not having to wait in a lengthy precheck line this week.

Clinically depressed (functioning) and in mourning over the loss of a family member. If not for wfh, I would have had to take a sabbatical. Wild to think that the performative-but-not-performance stuff (am I cute and polished in the office at 8.45am on the dot?) could dictate our trajectories in the before times. Grateful for the executional focus of wfh that allows me to be a crying unshowered mess between mtgs without damaging my career.

I am a 26M and my job is 100% remote going forward. I want to move to NYC from LA (always wanted to make the move) and I’ve always lived in LA, but have been to NYC many times, so I am fairly familiar with it. Have a couple friends there, but if I were to make the move I’m worried it would be tough to make friends and have a life outside of working from home. Not too interested in changing to a job based in NYC now, but open to it later. Any advice/tips? Anyone do something similar? Regrets?

Anyone else finding it very difficult to get any enjoyment out of account management these days? Any coping tips? I feel like being an account person is especially difficult in the COVID era since so much of what we do is manage communications, ensure the team is set up well etc. None of this feels particularly fun alone staring into the void of Zoom all day ... but the same pressure is still there. I feel like I spend every week counting down to the weekend which kinda sucks.

I have roughly 1.5 YOE at a top 10 firm, half in audit half in TAS, no CPA. I’ve applied to and received referrals for pretty much all big 4 and other 10 firms. For the ones who gave me a phone screen or first round interview, I was told they’d like me to have more YOE before considering me. Yet I see folks on here with 1.5 YOE in just audit getting senior roles in TAS at these same firms. I believe I’m personable and decent at interviewing. Any ideas on why I’m not getting any offers?

Would love to speak with anyone who made an exit from consulting shortly after reaching M. How did you think about the following? 1. What functional roles will you actually be good fit for? How does one really know? My resume of case work just confuses me tbh 2. What level should you / did you shoot for? Is AD a realistic goal? 3. What platform did you use to search for jobs? LinkedIn? 3. How did you shortlist your set of target companies? 4. How did you ultimately land the "right" job?
