Looking for inspiration: what’s the best virtual event you’ve seen so far? (Loving random slack groups and of course Fishbowl!)
Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
Brutal 2 weeks. Weekend of work. SM micromanaging. Pick up someone's slack and they 🔨 your head. What is wrong with this people?
Fuck Zoom meetings. There, I said it.
None of my Zoom meetings have been hacked or compromised, do the hackers think im ugly ?
I’m… too sexy for this slide, too sexy for this ping, too sexy for this zoom, too sexy for this email, too sexy for these edits yeah yeah… I’m too sexy for this pitch, too sexy for this manager, too sexy for this BD, too sexy for this firm, yeah yeah…
Introverts with admits to B schools - how are you all planning on surviving the networking events? I don’t enjoy large groups of people (>5) and am already tired of the incessant zoom calls and meetups 😭
Getting an offer without ever doing an in-person interview (i.e. Skype only). Is it a thing?
My Kellogg interview is in a couple days but I haven’t received a zoom link yet. Should I contact them tomorrow?
When everyone is getting more than they’re full of Zoom meetings, what are some other ways to keep employees engaged, connected, and feeling like they’re part of something important?

Is it rude to suggest to a new analyst that she needs to look more professional, e.g. don’t show up with wet hair to client meetings (even if on Zoom)? FYI I’m also a female and just trying to look out for these new hires
On zoom presentations to clients, does everyone on your team you keep the camera on the whole time, or only when speaking/presenters?
Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode. Open to suggestions or ideas. My team is spread out internationally, so even sending a stupid “swag” gift is next to impossible.
What web meeting platform are you using for client meetings? I’m currently using GoTo, but considering switching over to Zoom. (Got rid of Fuze years ago, it was crap)

What is the culture like and how are the projects/clients at Strategy& compared to Deloitte? Is S& stronger in certain industries over others?
What’s in a PE operations role? Is it a good transition from FDD? Is there a salary bump? Is the prestige the same? What about work life balance? Is it better than FDD at a Big 4?
Alcohol as a client holiday gift—I know many struggle without sharing broadly that they do. A fine wine, scotch or craft bourbon while well-intentioned can be presumptuous (and for some, dangerous). Just suggesting Confirm before you send. It could be an opportunity for a more meaningful and appreciated gift.
QUESTION -When you have a great passion project / bottom drawer idea that you keep bringing out and trying to bring back to life - ie you’ve had it in a couple of agencies - who owns it? It wasn’t for a brief, and it was worked on above and beyond the general hours of work. And it’s never been bought.
Looking for some insight on a Business Value Services Consultant role at Salesforce. I have 5 YOE doing SAP implementations for multiple clients at B4 and am very well versed in supply chain processes/integrations. Anybody know what the role is like or what the pay might look like?

These are the threads we should frame and hang in all agency lobbies instead! "Just got laid off. Just found out I’m pregnant. Someone say it’s going to be okay, because that seem..." See full post https://joinfishbowl.com/post_2r395j

Hello People! I am interested in knowing about the work culture and growth in CACTUS COMMUNICATION and PREMIER RESEARCH (Bangalore). It would be wonderful if anybody can throw some light on their experience with the organisations.
Hi all. What has been your most successful interview method when assessing behaviours in sales staff?💡 I've got so many options available but would love to know your thoughts 💭 Thanks 👍
Can anyone give more color on the difference between what the “focus” interview and the “behavioral” interview entails for a consultant . Coming in laterally and recruiter didn’t provide much detail! thanks
Do you find companies today interview without empathy, over-valuing technical skill, pressure tests, and first impressions? A follow-up to this, if you’ve been hired by a company based on your skills, ability to perform under pressure, and first impression- did you feel you made the right decision once settled in your role? I’m analyzing the evolution of interviews and a human-centered approach.
Interview with Goldman’s sales strategy and enablement team. Can anyone provide insight into this process? Or connect me with someone that can? TIA
Just transferred to the NYC office and realized it’s a whole new beast (people/culture/projects). Any advice is welcome!

Hello 🐠🐋🐟 Can anyone tell how is Epam? I only know it's US based company. Can anyone please elaborate on work culture and security there.
What constitutes a “notice period” when terminated? Wondering if eligible for severance. Not fired for any of the “causes”. Working in at-will state.
Has anyone moved from audit to recruiting within the big 4? How did you do it? How is the job?
