Was unsuccessful recruiting for top consulting firms during my MBA. I need that money! What is the best approach to landing an interview post MBA? Referral?
What’s the proper way to write an email after getting terminated? Is there any way to get a reference or at least make sure they don’t say anything bad to a future employer? (No severance package, wrong fit for team, 2 months in, first job)
Seeing some people just roll out the bed and show up on zoom meetings. I think this will come in handy to remind them to shower and change, ‘hopefully’? 🤦🏻♀️😂
We are picking up two Havanese puppies this weekend. If you have pet insurance that you like, could you let me know the provider. Thank you.
Considering making the jump from a regional firm to BigLaw.. any advice on making (or not making) the leap? Intel into the culture at Baker Hostetler?

4th year going into my 5th year and am leading discovery and case management on a case with a $5 million budget (yeah!) with a rocket docket. Starting to understand why partners have no time to do substantive work: it’s all answering client questions and managing staff, associates, and reviewing partners. Any tips for the transition? I’ve never been too demanding from my colleagues and usually just pick up any slack myself. Now I need to motivate others and give direction.
If my company doesn’t match 401k at all, should I pull the ~$4k out (with whatever fees that incurs for early) to fill 2020 & 2021 Roth IRA allocations before deadline is up?
For those companies / roles with unlimited pto, how does a payout work if you leave and /or are laid off? Receive nothing or some set amount?
Layoffs yesterday 😭 We had a brutal round of layoffs before break too and we all thought we were safe for a while. I still have my job but the survivor’s guilt is real.
Is to possible for those counselled out from MBB to make their way back? Particularly at the junior level, so counselled out as an analyst then boomerang back at the consultant level
I was just offered a promotion to Sr Strategy Analyst and I’d like to negotiate the base comp from $109 to $116 at least. I would love to hear how others have navigated this conversation. My points are: 1. I have both supply- and demand- side experience. 2. I have a proven record of dedication to the company w/ examples.

Hi Fishes! I’m a newly promoted S1 in tax at a Top 10. I’m trying to join the Big 4 post 10/15 (preferably KPMG) Does anyone have any tips or suggestions to make it in? I had an interview with EY two weeks ago (before I was officially a senior), but never heard back, probably because they were looking for a senior lol. 😭 Thank you everyone!!!
Kind of regret going into accounting/audit lol. Was anyone else told “accounting can do finance but finance can’t do accounting.” I was under the impression that transitioning to finance would be easy, but all the exit ops I see are senior accountant, internal audit, accounting advisory, etc.
Roth IRA and 401k currently all in 2060 target date fund. Should I exchange for all VTWAX or keep in TDF? I’m 23 (VTWAX expense ratio: .10%, TDF is .15%)
