Most consulting gigs don't hire new hires, with the lowest level of the totem pole coming at the senior level. When that happens, experience is what matters, not your major.

Hi guys, I am due to start working at EY soon within audit. I will be commuting to the office by train when in the Birmingham office. This will be from Leicester. Usually if a commute is about 1.5 hours+, Mazars authorises hotels. Is there a similar policy at EY? When not in the office I would prefer to drive to clients, not sure if me being in Leicester affects whether they will tell me to suck up an extended commute? Would a mileage claim be from the office to the client? Thanks!

Any pointers for someone who struggles to speak up during meetings? When I do speak, I’m confident, clear, and direct, but finding that I’m very self-conscious about speaking up or providing my perspective during workshops or brainstorms with the client, for fear of being wrong or being judged. I’ve received some feedback about it lately, so wondering if you 🐠 had any advice
