Any NYC CD’s who have time to grab a coffee and take a look at our book? We are a junior team from the Netherlands. We just finished our internship at Grey and are on exchange at the SVA.
Do you count internships in your years of experience? What if it was a long internship that didn't feel like interning and just felt like full-time but was labeled internship?
Is taking an internship at a very good/very big agency worth It? Any horror stories of not getting a job and screwing yourself after an internship concludes?
When the intern doesn’t get that return offer...
What made your internship special and why did you want to join your firm? Think, fun things or small touches that went a long way, too.
I just finished an art direction internship in LA I’m and looking for what’s next. I’m happy to stay in LA or move to NYC. Any leads would be appreciated!
Some intern really messed up 😤
Beginner interning at PwC this summer. Nervous about expectations but planning to get Security+ and messing around w/ other tools. What can I expect and any infoSec intern advice?
Deloitte 🐠 What's a fair pay in Canada for an incoming BTA from a top school in Canada. Have past internship exp and an engineering degree. Don't have stellar grades but got some other leadership experience. Also female.
Perpetually an intern... working at the same company for 1.5+ years and easily doing the work of a junior creative, & taking the heat off my CDs daily; sometimes I’m the only AD on big jobs. I’m not making a livable wage & I’ve undercut my soul, free time, and financial stability with no end in sight. My teammates always really appreciate my hustle and insights. It makes me wonder what else I could possibly do. Put on more make up? Start poppin adderal? I’m joking... but what would you do?
Last summer I mentored an intern who was later taken on full-time by a different team at our agency. Today I found out he has a 2 month shoot in Tahiti while I'm here stuck making banners. I know...
How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?
Little sister is starting her internship soon. Will be making some decent money. What financial advise can I share with her? Should she open an IRA account or any other account? Will have about $20k-$25k in student loans when she graduates college. Very minimal savings so far
Our intern comes in 5 days a week and a lot of the time I have nothing for her to do. Any good long term projects she can do during down time?
Am I making a mistake? Thinking about signing with Strategy& and giving up my 2nd year bschool reimbursement ($80k) from my internship.
Hey guys- I have an intern buddy who was assigned to me and they’re just down the block from me. They want to meet up and I feel awful because they came to the city to intern and they don’t know anyone. It is not policy to meet up rn but if I was to just meet the person in a park for a coffee is that not a good move?
I need to know if I’ve pigeon-holed myself. I have an undergrad in music business, and got a lot of good experience then. Worked in live events for 4 years before returning to law school, intending to practice in entertainment law (specifically music). Got a summer internship at a boutique entertainment firm, but no offer due to the small market. Moved to a larger market, but I’m not in one of the “hotspots”. I’m in-house currently, and have moved up quickly. (Cont.)
Friend runs a company and hired a VP of Sales to help grow the business. Guy got some relocation $ and was supposed to start 2 months ago. Ever since he said his kid had an accident and from that point on kept pushing the start date back claiming he has to do something related to the accident. He hasn’t sent any proof to HR, has been requested twice claims he will but then doesn’t. And has pushed his start date back half a dozen times. How should I advice him to proceed?
Hi Atlanta bowl, I’m an NYC creative & SCAD grad looking to move back home (to Atlanta) - what are your thoughts in the creative (Corp & agency) scene in ATL? Any words of advice?
If your CEO asked you to define and articulate what specific items HR and Talent own individually, where do you start? What other guidelines/guidance can you share? (Note that both report to the same executive, who does not have a human capital background)

Asking for a friend: What’s the interview process for a FSO Manager in EY joining the DnA BI team like? Has anyone been through the process recently? Thanks
What accommodations can be made for a Deloitte case interview? Should I ask my recruiter or no? I would just disclose that I have a learning disability but adhd depending on what I need to disclose
I’m sick of living in NYC but can’t go anywhere.
In house lawyers for global companies: do you expect your international travel to rebound - ever? I am at a firm where I practice in government enforcement and investigations, and I always saw myself going in house to do this work and travel abroad frequently. Are those days gone because of zoom?
Wondering if other districts have taken away duty free lunches for teachers to supervise lunch in the classroom to provide social distancing.
You grabbed your leftovers from the fridge and started eating. Did you pause partway through when you realized it wasn’t yours? Did you keep eating in victory or did you stop in shame?
Can’t decide between Cornell’s Metro vs. Americas EMBA program. They both seem to be great and offer an Cornell MBA upon graduation. Americas costs about 155k while the Metro NY costs 205k. Both programs are 60 credits in different formats. I can’t seem to understand the difference in price. I like the Americas program because of its flexibility (can attend from selected cities across the US so I would not be stuck in NY). I like the Metro NY for the in-person classroom environment.

Hi! I have a few questions on the backdoor Roth in which I’ve done a bit of research online. When it comes tax time, will my 401k vendor (Merrill) give me the correct documents? I’ve just used turbo tax in the past but am worried of any documents I may be missing to adjust any tax. Also- when does the pro-rata rule come into play? I’m just nervous in the entire process as this is my first year doing this. TIA!!
Curious the pay difference. What general pay range (US) can someone with 3-5 years of PMO/functional consulting for SAP S4HANA Cloud & On Prem experience expect at a big 4 firm with an MBA(not that having the MBA matters a ton)?
I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card. My meal expenses are per diem so I'm thinking about the AmEx Gold card as it has 4x points on dining. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA
