I come from the Azure Technical Support background where we used to troubleshoot and fix IAAS issues in the client's environment (loved that profile!). Now, from what I know, Microsoft doesn't have technical support roles/positions in Toronto as they are mostly outsourced. Folks here who are working for MS, please let me know what role do you think I'll be suitable for if I were to apply in MS. TIA!

I haven’t been feeling good about myself lately. Been depressed about my weight, my job search, and my health but I’m going to try to make a change. Today I decided to start being healthy again. I went to the gym this morning, got 8 hrs of sleep last night, and even made plans to hang out with friends this weekend. It’s not much but it’s a start and hopefully the beginning of a consistent and successful journey. To anyone going through the same thing, it will get better! We have to push through❤️
How are non-consulting case interviews different than consulting cases? Would you approach them the same way?
I accepted an offer to join a national firm after graduating this summer. The pay is decent, and I am relatively happy so far (it’s only been a month since I joined). Today I received an email from a bigger, more prestigious firm I applied to months ago. They’re asking if I am still looking for an Associate role. I would like to interview with them to see what they have to offer. Would that be considered ‘disloyal’ towards my current firm that I just joined a month ago?

Here’s a reminder for my perfectionists, first/second years, and those of us questioning if we’re doing enough. Your lessons do not need to be incredible this year. Fall back on some of your favorites, do what you can, and make sure you’re allocating time for yourself everyday. Yes everyday or else you will go insane. End each day by saying you did your best and no matter what mistakes you make or if lessons flop, try again the next day. You. Are. Human.

Do all firms share utilization reports for all staff with everyone? I feel like it’s awful for our company culture to share everyone’s stats office-wide. Just breeds anger and bad vibes all around.
