Hi all, I am currently working at RB but I am interested in exiting to a tech strategy/product role after a few years. I was recently contacted by a recruiter at Publicis Sapient, and they do a lot of digital consulting. Which would position me better for FAANG in the future? RB but virtually no digital consulting, or a digital consulting house like Publicis Sapient? TIA
Posted in Big 4 bowl but reposting here: Looking to move into a general Consulting Staff/Business Transformation/Strategy position mid-late 2022. Was eyeing a Summer/Fall 2022 Business Transformation Staff position at EY in particular, but it has dropped off. Any idea of when positions like that will typically open up across most firms? Want to get in early, open to any firm. I do not have an MBA, but I am client facing and work in commercial markets currently. TYIA!
Can anyone share how long they had to wait before hearing back from a recruiter from KPMG after applying to a exp hire position/getting referred? Been about a week and haven’t heard back so wondering if this just means they didn’t see a fit or if it takes a bit longer

I always thought it was strange that agencies rarely let candidates know the client until they are towards the end of the process. My position has way more job security than others simply because I work for a CPG client. Those in the same role on other accounts (e.g. airlines, hotels, fitness) have been furloughed or even laid off just because of the nature of the industry their client is in. Do we think agencies will have to be more transparent and let candidates ultimately chose the client?

Does anyone know if you can transfer a credit card balance twice? I.e. say if I have 5k in my Amex and I want to transfer that balance to a Citi card. Then, say in two months later I have another 5k on my Amex and I want to transfer that as well. Do I have to open up a second card or can I just do a second balance transfer to the Citi card?

Has anyone submitted grad school applications while working in tech sales? Or have any managers here managed employees who’ve gone through this process? I know in roles like finance and consulting, grad or business school is part of the next step in employees’ careers so employers are supportive. I’m not sure it’s the same for tech roles. Honest opinion—will my desire to go to grad school disincentivize my employer to invest in me?
For those roles in non strategy such as risk or implementation, does any of the mbb recruit out of non targets? I'm a master's student in business analytics in a non target in NYC, and I really am interested in an implementation/ risk consulting at MBB. ( Different from big 4 risk)
Looking for career advice for a mentee who has two competing Internship offers as a sophomore from Google and Uber. Initially encouraged him to pick Google because of brand name, but the Uber offer pays an extra $10k over the summer and he supports himself through college so it is a material difference. Also from what I've heard, it's easier to get a return offer from Uber than Google's soph program. Which would you take and why? I'm not in the tech field so trying not to give bad advice 😁
I am hoping for some advice. I was a young mom (17 when pregnant) and ended up having three kids by 23. I’ve since pulled myself up by my boot straps and am doing well in my career and have seen good trajectory. The thing is, it’s always nagged at me that I never went to college. I don’t want to go to college in the traditional sense but my new employer offers some tuition reimbursement (if related to the job). I’m in tech, specifically software. What should I look into?
