Ideas on when the exit ops competition for consultants will return to normal? Context: With all the layoffs (Deloitte) etc., the market has a lot more consultants going for the same jobs than normal.
I feel like I can’t redeem my career. I’ve been out of paying work since I graduated. My bar was delayed due to a medical problem and since then I’ve only been able to find volunteering. I’ve been working for free for 2 years now. My network is tapped, my mentors are confused why I can’t find anything, my law school’s career services actually gave up on me, I don’t have the money to move to a new place, I have no other support and I can’t even go back to retail because nobody’s hiring out here.

Hi fam! Taking a poll- are you out at work? To everyone or just a chosen few? And bonus- do you know other Black LGBTQ folks at work that are out to all?

I romanticized being a consultant while working in industry. Then I got a consulting job, a couple promos, and now the idea of consulting just makes me roll my eyes. I love the pay and I don’t mind working hard, w/ long hours, but the “business of consulting” is exhausting (e.g. maintaining utilization, selling engagements, 6k iterations of a deck, etc). Great company, great co-workers, and interesting engagements.... I can’t be the only one feeling this way. Time to exit or is this a phase?

Had an interview scheduled for Tuesday just now.
