Almost all do them. They verify the info you wrote in your app (companies you worked for, check in with recommenders that they actually wrote the recs)

Got it. Do you know what they check from undergrad? Is it just the transcript they ask for?

Got it. So it’s the background check company that gets the records.

How do they verify your roles if you worked on a very early stage startup? Has since pivoted multiple times and now most of the current management is different than when you worked there...

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

Working at ACN right now, 2 YOE. Will pivoting over to a startup in a more software sales-based role for another 2 years before my MBA (and moving internationally for this) add to, or take away from my story? I’m thinking: Cons: less brand recognition, shows I didn’t stick around long enough to show progression, strength of recommenders, lower pay Pros: international experience, less conventional background and shows I have a more diversified skill, probably more impact @ a startup. Thoughts?

Hi Ladies! I’m transitioning to a manager of a team I’ve been leading. There’s been a lot of turnover with the team and I feel like I’m having a hard time getting the team to see me more as an authoritative figure. For example, when I ask for volunteers on a simple task, no one replies. Should I just resort to assigning rather than asking? Also are there leadership books you suggest that I could read up on? Thank you!
