Thoughts on Korn Ferry? A recruiter reached out and honestly I have never heard of them. I’m currently at a Big 4.

Reached out for what? To get you to work for them, or to discuss an opportunity they are working on? It’s a legit shop. I don’t normally talk to recruiters but for them I’ll make an exception.

To work for them. Currently at D, so wanted to gauge if it’s a step up or down

They’re a top notch exec recruiting firm. Other areas like culture, talent, and org consulting is good but not at the same level of impact an MBB or really good Big 4 practice would have

I’ve heard of them prior to D, it’s honestly a big step down. Even below Mercer / Gartner

If you’re into leadership specifically it could be a good move. Even my SMs who know I want to do leadership have told me to look into them if I don’t find the right leadership work here

I have been 😂😂😂 all morning all by myself. So, I started taking out my sew in cause this summer heat is killing me. I was about to take down the closure when I suddenly remembered that I had to be on a video call for work. So, I just brushed the closure and positioned myself in front of the camera as if I still have the full hair do. Front view is 💯. Back view is 🙈😂😂😂. When have you all had to improvise while WFH?

Laid off from AMLaw200 firm due to coronavirus. Had great grades first year of law school. Top of class. Able to secure summer associate position at this firm, led to first year associate position. But I did poorly after the first year of law school and graduated below 3.0 gpa. Do I have a shot at another big law firm? Seems that so many place an emphasis on grades rather than relevant experience. *sigh*
