Be good at selling why people should come to your firm. I’ve referred 3 candidates so far but only got 2 to come as the third was recruiting elsewhere as well

Yup! Keep your networks up

I put in about 30-40 hours over the course of a few months trying to bring in a referral (any referral) and never got one. I was treating it like a side hustle and never landed anyone.

I wanted to celebrate two firsts in my career! For the first time I have gotten 2 job offers in the same period. I was getting underpaid at my current position, $80k. I have been interviewing for 5 months, and first I got an offer for 25% More (100k) and negotiated it up to 105k which was my first time negotiating a salary (scary!) Last night I got an offer for lead designer 130k which is 60% more than current salary. The market is hot! If you’re unhappy get out there and interview!!

Do you guys at BCG think it would be a smart decision to make a lateral move to PL from Big 4? Have great network and support at current company. The MBB brand, 20k increase in TC, and potential better exit opportunities would be reasons to move.

Experienced hire Manager here, informed before Christmas that I’ll be taking another lap but not because of performance (5/5 on scats and all operating at next level) or metrics (22mm in MR) but the only reason is I need more time in the “saddle”… During this time, I’ve been replying to recruiters and after a PPMD interview last week, I was offered an SM role at a smaller firm with a base pay increase of 45% (225k) over my current salary. Very much considering this… thoughts?

From my high school/college job at a county I have a 457(b) that has $5,215 in it with an ARR of 2.18%. It’s not much, but I am trying to figure out what the best thing to do with it is: leave if there until retirement, cash it out w/ no penalty but income tax, or roll it over into I assume an IRA. Any advice would be appreciated! (My current job has a pension and I pay extra into a different 457)

Really not sure why I went to law school. I spent all that time and money earning the degree and getting licensed. I now go into work, and while I do enjoy what I do somewhat, I am always stressed and I cant sleep at night because I’m worried about messing something up. I look at my friends who aren’t attorneys and they not only have a much more lax workload and can have more fun during the week, they also make more money than I do. Why am I in this industry again?
