Hair of the dog

It used to take me 45-60 minutes to shower, get ready and get out the hotel. Now, I comfortably fit in 15 minutes of yoga and 30ish minutes of drinking coffee and reading articles & op-eds

Wake up at 7:45, shower and get online by 8. Make breakfast at the first break in meetings.

I appeared for a second round of tech interview last Thursday after the HC wanted to cover a few pointers that weren’t covered in the first 4 interview schedule. I haven’t heard back from the recruiter and the news of google slowing down the hiring process also has caught me up in thoughts. Any suggestions if I should continue waiting or poke the recruiter for an update ? Thanks :)

After 4 years at Bain, I’m still the “senior lateral hire” who didn’t start as an AC or out of B School. It’s incredibly tiring not being “homegrown”.

Deloitte GPS people - have you all adopted a new hiring process? I started the hiring process back in March, successfully completing my interviews early Feb. My recruiter reached out 2 weeks ago saying they wanted to extend an offer but needed to go through a new process. It sounds like the previous process usually took 48 hours to turn around an offer so at 2 weeks I’m curious what’s going on. Any insights are much appreciated!

Any chance I can fight the VATV tax? Need to register car. My dad transferred title to me already and because I was living in GA when he did this and since his name was on the top of the title document, it is seen as a casual sale which is 6.6% tax of car value. If he had transferred it to me in California and I simply registered the car myself here it would just be an out of state transfer which is 3.3%. It’s a difference of $500, I don’t wanna give the GA government any more taxes than I have.

I got hired for a specific client and a few weeks into my onboarding, the client announced that we were essentially being fired (through no fault of mine). My leadership reassured me that they’ll staff me elsewhere but I’m not sure I want to hitch my wagon to people who can’t seem to do anything right.

I want to start job searching but I’m concerned that other places won’t consider me because I’ve only been here two months. Any advice on how to best explain the short stint?

Obviously MBB are the top consulting firms, but would people feel different about prestige based on service line?

When you make an offer on home what all cost you ask the seller. I am asking 3% closing, deep cleaning, 1 yr warranty on appliances. The closing in MD runs into 12-15k which is major expense so does asking seller to pay is normal practice. How long a builder installed carpet and appliances generally last assuming normal wear and tear. In 10-15 yr old house i believe most of these needs a new replacement
