If you won't get companion pass this year fly delta.

Problem with delta is everyone has status in and out of atl

If you'll be mainly using points for domestic travel, Southwest is the best in terms of redemption + the fact that ATL is one of its hubs.
If you like to use points/ benefits on int'l travel, go with Delta.

If you go SW, open premier and plus CCs and get Companion pass easy. Did it last year.

I usually only do 1-2 international flights a year. Solo traveler, so the companion pass isn't super enticing at this point.

What is your intention of points? Int'l vs domestic? Solo vs partner? That can help decide between the two.

It depends

Then it's the delta difference for you

Got asked to do a test project as part of the interview process. I was told that they’d pay for my time, ok cool. Love that they respect our time. However when I saw the task, it was raising all the red flags (copywriting and designing a collateral piece for their product as well as a set of social ads for two different target audiences for their brand). I decided to do them anyways because I really need a job right now. Presented the designs to them, the liked it, asked for pdf. A week later….

Newbie fish here, question for the BCG folks. I am currently in the process for a knowledge analyst position, specialized in an industry I really like. I enjoy the fact that they have a client-facing track, and you act as sort of a bridge between research insights and cases. Do you confirm this is the case? Or it's more fuss and it's a B-role of just supporting without critical tasks? I understand BCG should have higher consideration of KTs compared to the others.
