Thanks OP. Yeah, I've been talking to a former client to see if I can come in as a contractor for a couple of months. I also have a couple of interviews lines up and created an account with Upwork. Fingers crossed.

Just got an offer from McK for Associate position. Told my dad and now he says he’s not paying for my MBA since I landed this without it. Can’t believe he’s doing this. Sure, he paid for my UPenn undergrad, but MBA isn’t that much more 🙄

overstaffed?! Big D has too many unassigned in the office. Virginia. Heard layoff is coming! AND the same engagement is run by less people and afraid to add staff b/c budget.

Since this topic comes up once a week on here: Is having a racial preference in dating racist? (1) it is, (2) it may not be your fault, you could have been conditioned by society to view one race as attractive, (3) no it’s not the same as gender preference, (4) yes this damages our community, basic emotional intelligence would let you realize this, and (5) pick up your phone and Google instead of asking here over and over. There is a wealth of research and history behind this topic.

I am in my first HRBP role. It has been a role I’ve been wanting to focus on and get in to but never got the opportunity to do so. My imposter syndrome has kicked in, especially since it’s all remote too.  I was wondering if anyone can give some advice on how to build that trust and relationship piece with managers to be able to succeed? I feel like my fear is holding me back and I am so afraid of failing again.

My client’s husband has been in the biz 35 yrs now, but he doesn’t manage her assets (hence why she’s my client). Any other fish out there who don’t handle your spouse’s accounts? Why? Just curious!

Anybody else food cheat on their partners while wfh? I just had a nice bowl of ramen from my favorite place, delivered discreetly by Uber Eats. I cheated because I just wanted to eat what I feel without discussing it (used to be everyday lunch in good old days). I hope my partner doesn’t suggest takeout for dinner. :)
