Hi 🐠- I have a data analytic background, and am joining a consulting firm’s fraud group. I don’t know much about accounting - any books/good sources to brush up on to get some general knowledge?
Inspired by one of my kids' favorite books, I penned this masterpiece of an Ode to Consulting: One senior partner all alone Calls two managing directors on the phone Three associate partners at the door Bring along another four Five senior managers come overdressed Six managers show up with a guest Seven senior consultants arrive in a sack Eight associates sneak in the back Nine analysts come to work ALL THE CONSULTANTS GO BERSERK!!! Ok, I'll show myself out now... 😂

I've become really jaded about consulting. I find all so often you need to tell the client what they want to hear to keep their business and I feel like so much of the what I recommend doesn't actually get implemented.

Does anyone who switched from consulting to product management have any recommendations of h helpful PM books, courses, or programs?
I’m looking into exiting consulting and moving into product management. Picked up a few books to read. Would a PM certification provide a lot of value? Any other tips are appreciated! Thank you.

Hi! Around 3 months back I gave IBM Cognitive test as the initial assignment but bombed it due to some technical issues and my candidature was rejected further. However, my profile has again been considered by IBM for a similar role and received Cognitive test link again. Since the previous test results are valid for 1year, the activity was auto completed. What is the probability of me being considered for further rounds? Please enlighten. Thanks

Going on 5 months since I was laid off and I’m slowing losing hope. I’ve exhausted all my contacts, my network, people not even in my network. I feel that I’m never not looking and I’m running out of options. I know I’m not alone by any stretch but somehow it doesn’t make it easier.

Please confirm if anyone heard this type of news.

Technology has made our life easier but also so much harder. In our parents era when they went on vacation there was no way of finding them so they enjoyed their days off… Nowadays is “you can go on vacation but have to be available if needed”… bro what?
