I have an interview coming up with a machine learning start up in the chatbot space. How can I position myself for a customer success role? Appreciate any guidance.
Feeling super vindicated: I applied for a role that I would’ve taken and was told “let’s interview some others and get back to you in a few weeks.” Interviewed with a reach (much better company, more competitive, much higher salary) and got it. Just received the call from the first company offering me the role
Eight Bit Studios in Chicago, is hiring for a product designer with animation chops if anyone knows someone looking! Chill small agency, in-house devs, wide range of projects, and unlimited PTO!
Interviewing for role at Accenture (liquid). Can anyone tell me how Accenture differs from D? Have been at D for two years and am not a fan of the culture. What Can I expect at Accenture?
Scenario: You leave Big 4 & move across the country. Chose between 2 offers: industry job at huge corporation and step-up role at a small firm. 5 months into your industry job you are miserable (cont)
Recruiter (in west coast) said on Monday he will provide an update later in the week if Im selected for a role I’ve been interviewing for the past 2 months. The wait is killing me. Called in sick because I was too anxious to do any work and lost all motivation. Should I reach out for an update now or wait til end of the day?
Why is it in every account capability meeting we have, I feel like senior leadership is defending why our role is important and why we are needed...should this worry me? Is account seen as obsolete?
I have a position in my group at BDO for an IT Risk Advisory Senior. Two+ years of experience. Willing to promote from staff to Senior for the right candidate. DM me if interested.
Looking for a new role that challenge myself. Good at analytics in insight, model, visualization. Using SAS, SQL, MicroStrategy/Tableau. If you know anyone that may be interested, please let me know.
Any fish with experience moving to an internal, non-consulting role with their firm and have an opinion on making the move now? Would be promotion (which I am unlikely to get in my area of the org due to freezes) but very aware of the old adage “if it’s not billable, it’s killable.” No layoffs yet and no pressure for me to move out of consulting, but this may be an option to level up and maybe have a better exit in 18 months. Thoughts?
Recruiter is presenting an associate partner role at Bluewolf /IBM. What level is that compared to other firms or my current Accenture level?

How do you go about reaching out to a creative director on linkedin? Is it okay to ask for a portfolio review, even if you’re clearly reaching out because they’re hiring?
As an interviewer, if someone writes a thank you email, but you know they didnt get the position, do you still respond? I am sure its a nice thing to do, but not sure how to even respond.
Are contract positions feasible in the currently economy? Under what circumstance would you take a contract role? Recruiters keep messaging me on LinkedIn but they’re contract positions and I don’t think it gives any job security whatsoever.
How do you politely let down a past coworker who reaches out about a position at your agency that they are not qualified for? Nice guy, unfortunately was laid off... but (cont’d)
Do people consider their relative advantage when accepting a position at a consulting firm? For example if you knew you would be average at MBB and a rockstar at big4 would that change your calculus?
How soon after a final round interview on Friday should I expect to hear back? (Context: large firm, actively hiring, mid-level position)

Do firms care about you getting fired from a job during college that is irrelevant to your current position?
looking to jump ship. going to be rusty with interviews. what sorts of questions do they ask experienced hires for consulting?
Is it fair to say that your first/early job has a huge impact on the future of your career? Depending on the difficulty of the client and the project you’re able to make, that determines where you end up for mid level. Then that just snowballs. For example if you were at a well known agency, you’ll probably get noticed by other well known agencies. If you were at a client-driven agency people think you don’t have good ideas at all. Is it easy to switch trajectories? Am I nuts for thinking this?
Choose C1 LinkedIn - nice culture, 10mins from home, good WLB, 20 days PTO, can work from home - 135k all in C2 Chevron, can work from home 2 days/wk, 40min drive, will sponsor H1B - 180k all in
I can’t bring myself to justify paying $1600 for the Herman Miller Embody. Anyone here who can attest to its value and longer term benefits?
Does anyone have an idea of recent % of rejections/approvals on H1B extension? Would applying in premium have a positive/negative impact?
I learned the other day that Deloitte counts PTO against your chargeability. Is this common with most firms? (ACN doesn't count PTO in chargeability calculations.)
Anyone here from Canada on a tn visa? What did you select for “do you need a sponsor” when you applied for a job?
Would you put academic project experience on a resume if you have over a year and a half of work experience in order to show exposure to similar work as the role?
Ok, I’m gonna say this. Schools should open. Now hear me out. My wife is a family doctor, she is working insane hours, she is treating covid patients, and there is a lot of days when she has to stay at the hospital without coming home. My neighbour works in a local grocery store, so he has been at work since the Day 1 of lockdown. So if you need medical help, or want to eat, it’s ok for those people to be at work, but their kids have to stay home? Cont’d >>
So....which agency is giving out $100 gift cards to all employees? Wondering where these ~30% layoffs might happen after that CSO alluded to them in another post on here.
Need advice. Met a guy in feb, talk everyday, great chemistry, shared interests, values, and goals. Problem is, before we met, I really wanted to experience living on the west coast (currently on the east) & took a job across the country, so ill have to move sometime in the near future. Unsure when I can return & he’s expressed doubts (what if you end up loving it there, etc.) Also, despite having talked for so long, we haven’t done anything physical yet (he’s in a high risk profession) (cont)
Hi fishes, question: When tech companies write “experience with top management consulting firm required”, do they mean only MBB? Is Ops strategy in firms like ATK, OW, S& fair game?
Is it just me or comments like “best compliment i ever received, you’re not like any HR” implying that in general HR people are the worst are an offense against profession? I get it, we’re always the ones to blame, but when our own peers do that?
After seeing a bunch of the posts on here about some of the exit opportunities people here have posted, I started applying a couple months ago. I just got an offer that's a little under 3x my current comp... And I'm totally speechless. Thank you to everyone here for motivating me to look for that next opportunity!!!
