Hey LS Deloitte Fish! I have some close references at Deloitte who are helping push my resume through for an opportunity at the firm. Although neither of them are in LS, so I was wondering if there are specific roles I should be looking into or if it is fine just to have them submit my resume in the general LS pool? Not sure how the LS hiring process works so wanted to see if I could learn any info on here. Thank you!
