SOS. Wracked up a ton of credit card charges last month. Have three credit cards. One is fully paid off. One I can make the min payment. The last is Amex gold and I can’t pay it all down. What to do?

I turned on “open to work” (but only casually browsing) on LinkedIn last night because I’ve had a god-awful week and am legitimately considering my options. Except I was immediately bombarded by calls and emails from recruiters. My office phone was blowing up this morning in the middle of trying to get a filing out the door… I’ve already turned it back off. Lesson learned LMAO
Lesson learned: when in APAC do not ask your client to take you to their favorite restaurant. Wound up eating "turtle sex organ soup" and century eggs last night.
My flatmate got job opportunity at TCS with 4 years of experience with package 15lpa, he showed his offer letter to me. He passed out from same college and done b.tech only then worked at IBM then switch. I am earning less than 1/3 of his package. Lesson: don't be loyal to your company, never.
Drinking seems to be built into big law atmosphere/ central to networking. Any tips or lessons learned?
Has anyone taken lessons at GolfTEC or a golf store (golf galaxy, pga superstore)? I typically play in the mid 80s but can’t get into the 70s. Looking for lessons to improve and get a little more consistent.
I have a first grader who has a 2 sec attention span. I have to use a scripted ELA curriculum with lots of talk but not much writing. She NEEDS to do something focused on the lesson. Any ideas? TIA
What's your favorite lesson you've ever taught?
Teacher Autonomy: Have you ever felt peer pressured by your colleagues to teach lessons a certain way? All year 1 teacher on my team made it seem like there was only her way to teach a topic.
Anyone in the DC/NoVa area take golf lessons that helped them out? I normally shoot around 100, but play with friends who can shoot 80s every time and have no issue keeping up. Just would love to start hitting the ball more consistently and feel a lesson could really help
Anyone else get tired of the LinkedIn charade? Every day I see countless posts by people in advertising/marketing that come across as preachy, self-indulgent, humble brags that annoy me. Like, the pompous CEO/CD who writes a long post about that time he hired an intern and learned a valuable life lesson that we could all learn. Or the super-duper smart Copywriter who regurgitates Olgyvisms that we’ve all read a billion times to show his or her worth. It’s 2020. And I’m jaded.

One of the best business lessons I ever got was from the Simpsons. Bill gates destroyed homers computer and Internet business and told him "you don't get rich writing lots of checks"
I had almost ten people die in my friend group in the second half of 2020 and I got very depressed and started performing poorly at work. I didn’t tell my higher ups until it became an issue. I thought I could get through it and plus I figured they wouldn’t care.. It was decided that I get put on a PIP. Lesson learned to communicate.. 🙁 Anyone have tips for getting back on the right track
What are my entry opportunities in MBB? I’ve done mostly tech consulting, project management and most recently M&A strategy & execution, non MBA (couldn’t afford one)
How impressive do you think it is to hit Partner at Clearview? How does it compare to, say, reaching VP in industry? Vs. hitting partner at MBB?
Deloitte friends: any benefit to exceeding utilization targets? Project requirements mean I can't take pto before YE but I'm taking for 97%...
Does anyone remember the “nudge” on MSN that used to shake up the screen? Wish we could do the same with Slack or emails 😂
Ladies that have had experience with a sick parent - I just found out tonight that my mom’s doctor found 2 lumps in her breasts. I’m freaking out and don’t know what to do. I found out by evesdropping - she told my bf because she wants to make sure he’s around for me. They don’t know I heard and I’m trying to hold it together in secret. They don’t know results till next week but my mom has her doctorate in nursing and it seems like she thinks the worst. She had cancer 6 years ago and it was...
I feel I am underpaid... how much a VP / Senior VP in Operations should be making? Base and bonus please. My TOTAL comp is less than 220k.

McK 🐠, have my first round case (zoom) coming up in a few weeks. Any idea what the % pass rate is for moving onto final round, and the final round pass rate too?

Can anyone from Barclays,Pune help me with the turn around time for getting the offer letter once you have provided the requested documents and salary negotiation is done?
Senior Promotion 🎉😊 Good Luck FB fam trying for one! (P.S.: when does the official communication come out?)
MBB interviewers: “What’s your management style”, “What’s your communication preference”, ever hurt to provide a story to illustrate those traits? Or best spend that time elsewhere (“tell me about a time” questions, the case itself, etc). Ideally would do both, but only 30/45 mins here. TIA!
I have an on-site coming up soon, I also received some unfortunate health related news and I just have been out of my element the last week. I have a week and feel like I don't want to blow this opportunity. Would I be shooting myself in the leg if I requested the recruiter to reschedule? Is that even doable? I've made peace with my news and ready to move on with life. Please don't judge, I just would appreciate pointed recommendations on do's and don'ts. Thx!
Level 10 NJ resource, looking for a project asap. Can do (or bullshit really well) just about anything. Have done a bunch of BA and PMO roles since joining in 2015. Low LCR, frugal traveller. Help?
Do y’all constantly keep track of what you’re doing week to week to make it easier to update resume at end of project?

Would you transition to a brand manager? I’m 30 and thinking about the long term. Hear horror stories of people not lasting past 40 in the industry. Have an opening to do it eventually on brand side.
