Indecisive about relocating to Bangalore and applying for a relocation to Kolkata instead. I am a fresher who joined at the beginning of this year (staffed in project) and my base location is Bangalore. The primary reason to move to Kolkata being the cheaper cost of living. FOMO the life/culture in Bangalore and job opportunities there, are the reasons why I haven’t asked for a location change yet. I anyways plan on moving to Bangalore once I can afford it. What would be a better pick?

I’m a very experienced veterinary assistant who has been doing this job for about 4 years in total (almost 2 at this place) however because of my skill level I would say I am more of an unlicensed technician as I do all things they do. I’m looking for input on what I should ask for a raise. Given the minimum wage, I make about $5 over but that hasn’t really changed to match inflation of living, etc and truly feel like I should be making a decent amount more given my skills. Any helpful advice?

PwC Deals Tech and Data
Hi, I recently got a call from Pwc Deals Tech and Data service line (Associate level). Can anyone help me understand if this role is:
1. Client facing
2. Requires deep data background ( if yes, which tools, programming lang etc.)
3. Specific prep tips for the interview
Does anybody else feel that they unintentionally clash with co-workers more as a POC? Or that they’re quicker to dismiss you?
