What’s the dress code for virtual interviews now? Have a first round with BCG and debating if a crisp shirt will be fine, or if I need a suit? It’s also super hot, so don’t want to be sweating the whole time 😓
Revamping my agency's terrible internship program. For those of you who have had a great internships, what made it so great? What were the most valuable things you learned? If you had a not-so-great experience, what could you have done without? What do you wish you would've learned? Thanks in advance!
[Serious] Why do people who are otherwise smart and thoughtful make such illogical arguments when it comes to political/societal matters? Exhibit A: the people only citing the chance of death from covid for an INDIVIDUAL and when we’ve known since about week 2 in this pandemic that it’s the AGGREGATE deaths which we are worried about. I think/hope a lot of these people would never make such clueless statements at work so why is it acceptable when it comes to very serious societal matters?

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

Word for word, this is exactly how I feel about where we are. https://www.nationalreview.com/2021/07/against-the-covid-extremists/
Is it just my perception or is USCIS totally jammed and ignoring any processing times, service requests,... I have hard time to believe that Covid is the reason.
Where do you look to find exit oops besides LinkedIn? I’m most interested in biotech or VC with a pharma focus
Note to removal defense lawyers. Bond approved last Tuesday, one week before today’s merits hearing. Client couldn’t get out of jail because bond payments in central Ohio can only be made on Tuesday and Thursday. Luckily, Judge continued hearing so client can be placed on non-detained docket. Lesson is to know when bond can be paid in your area to try to avoid future problems.
On January 5th, I submitted a Consortium application to Berkeley, Tuck, Darden, Ross, Mccombs, and Anderson. Today I received my promotion from C to SC. I made SC at 3.5 years out of college at a boutique (Pariveda, Slalom, West Monroe) I made C 1 year out of college, but not sure if Adcoms will "notice" that, or just see me as a 3 YOE C. I feel a 3.5 YOE SC is a meaningful difference, but Stacy Blackman (robo email) says to not update adcoms. Thoughts?
