Good luck, it’s hard. You basically have to start at square 1 with a recruiter and interviews. Source: I started at USDC and left for a few years before rejoining Core consulting.

Depends on your skillset. Core consulting requires different skills. Do you have those skills?

You need to do 2-3 core roles on projects, build the core skills and network with a few SMS and partners. Then, you need to go through a formal interview process and have PPMD approval. Process usually takes no less than 2 years

I’m in a major city, firm is a boutique that has been around a very long time. What would you suggest? Any studies or research you’ve seen recently on trends in parental leave policies also helpful. I’d like to have some sort of data to back up what I recommend. TIA!

Hi all! I’m doing some research on parental leave policies to make a case to improve ours. How many weeks does your policy offer? Does it differ between “primary” and “secondary” caregiver? Birth vs other means of growing your family? I’m particularly interested in independent shops, but would love to hear from folks at the network agencies as well. It you could comment with your agency name, I’d be super grateful. Thank you thank you! ❤️
