Tapped my network for referrals and help with interviews. It’s the hardest leap you’ll make in your career, but once you make it out the foundation that Econ consulting gives you will put you ahead of so many people Network network network. You need people that either know you or know Econ consulting to go to bat for you Happy to help you work on your resume and translate some of that Econ consulting lingo into generalist consulting language

Hi fellow fishes, I've been offered a Tech strategy role at PWC SDC, Bangalore. My total experience is of 6 years (2.5 pre-MBA and 3.5 post-MBA). The offered role is of the same domain in which I've been working for the last 3.5 years @ACN. PWC are offering me a Senior Associate position. My question is - should I or can I negotiate with the HR to give me a better position (e.g. Manager) than the Senior Associate? Thanks in advance!

I’m feeling like everyday I’m dreading opening my laptop. I feel overworked, tired, and under-appreciated.

Been an art director for 12 months but grown in my role significantly & my boss told me my next promo was “political”. I’m managing well over 1.5M a year, 9 brands. Functioning with little to no oversight on a day-to-day basis, w/ only strategy checkins with my CD. 100% client facing. I’m managing 1 direct report and from 2-8 copy and art freelancers at any time. I feel like all my stretch goals are ACD focused. Yet still need SAD before ACD. Does this sound like an art director? Pharma agency.

Had an interview scheduled with hiring manager at Apple. Recruiter has been so hard to get hold of and never gave me any video conference details so I assumed this was a phone call which I’ve had with other Apple interviews at hiring manager screening round. Wasted first 10 mins going back and forth on this. I wasn’t ready for video interview too. Worst interview experience!! Bombed my interview so hard 😭😭😭😭

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
