I’m so glad I found this bowl. As an intern, I’m seeking guidance on how to take on this industry while still being true to who I am. Thank you all for your daily encouragement.
My sibling has an internship offer (an undergraduate student) for a satellite office of KPMG. Would anyone in the business tax division at KPMG be able to send me a message so I can ask a few questions?
Been only scheduling meetings from morning . Like do we honestly charge the clients 500 an hour for a glorified admin job? Am intern could do a lot better than calendar invites.

Looking for career advice for a mentee who has two competing Internship offers as a sophomore from Google and Uber. Initially encouraged him to pick Google because of brand name, but the Uber offer pays an extra $10k over the summer and he supports himself through college so it is a material difference. Also from what I've heard, it's easier to get a return offer from Uber than Google's soph program. Which would you take and why? I'm not in the tech field so trying not to give bad advice 😁
I’m a newly promoted managing attorney-Right before the pandemic and all of us began working remotely. I’m having trouble getting my former coworkers to respect me as their supervisor. Some have been there way longer than me, some have developed poor work habits (previously our practice group did not have a MA). An intern got really disrespectful with me today in a text and then wouldn’t answer my call. Any suggestions? I really want to be a good manager and take our practice to a higher level

Hey guys, super naive intern here! What’re the main differences between creative directors, associate creative directors, and executive creative directors?
I just started working at a Digital Strategy Consulting Boutique firm but the company is in Europe and we work in another language entirely. I started off as an intern (8 months) and now I am working full time. I am trying to learn the language to be more interactive with the clients and in the meetings but it's super difficult. Should I switch or learn the language and stay here for another year? It's a small firm and the pay is not that great but good for beginners in the country. Any advice?
I’m looking at changing careers from screenwriting to copywriting. How likely am I to get an internship/job at a good company without going to portfolio school? Or is portfolio school 100% necessary in order to land at the upper echelon agencies?
Does anyone know the title hierarchy for account at Weber Shandwick? Believe it starts intern, junior associate, associate...then not sure. Thanks!
Anyone been through HireRight and can answer a quick question. Do they verify internships? I have 4 YOE and have an intern title from years ago that may come up as off (i.e. Risk Management Intern vs. Finance Intern) Will this be a huge flag? Should I proactively tell HR?
Hi, intern here to crash the party... anyone know of Account Management jobs that might be coming open soon? I graduate in December and am frankly terrified — but I am enthusiastic!
Hey y’all! So my team just hired a direct report for me. They’re joining as an AE (they have internship experience and we’re an AAE for 9mos). While I’ve always had levels under me who I’ve helped manage, train and oversee - I’ve never had a direct report. Someone who’s development is my responsibility. Any advice on how to be amazing for my AE?
Why don’t more people put 20% down on a property and rent it out so the other 80% is paid for by someone else while they active equity? Is there something I’m missing?

Can someone describe the work culture at Roland Berger for me? I’m curious to know what the work life balance is like, whether the PMs and Partners are generally nice, and what the promotion process would be like for an experienced hire (is it fair?))
Received a job offer at a consulting firm as a data analytics consultant for $20k more than I am making now. I am torn on taking the job offer because my manager told me I was getting promoted at the end of the year to a data analyst. I am not sure what the salary range for a data analyst is at my current job. Should I take the job or wait it out to see what my end of year raise would look like? I really like my job and team so leaving would be tough, but this raise is something to consider.
Do you know of any companies that are similar to Toptal or BrainTrust? Basically where once you get in, you don't necessarily have to go through full interview rounds for each new client? I'm not referring to the big consulting firms, but more for independents.

Fishies, has anyone set up a taxable investment account dedicated to taking care of their parents’ after life expenses? My parents don’t have much savings and I think it will be up to me and my sibling to fund the costs. We are both in our late 20s /early 30s so thinking we can create a shared account to invest money in a index fund. Then hopefully decades later we can use it on our parents. I’m also open to other suggestions and any general advice on taking care of parent
Upcoming interview for Mckinsey’s RADAR team. Anyone have any insight into what I might expect? McKinsey & Company
Hey everyone. Hope you are having a good day. I have a little question. I am the type of auditor that love fieldwork. I heard from someone that big 4 now tend to switch to work from home mote. Is that true? Do you think it's better to try to get into mid size CPA firms or big 4 small and medium client segment/ industry in order to have the greatest chance to be on audits that require fieldwork? Hope to hear your opinion and advices.

Interviewing for MIT Sloan Fellows MBA (1 year program) shortly. 10YOE and joining MBB in a couple of months, post-MBA level role. Reading some previous FB posts disparaging the SF program and feeling a bit downhearted about it. Are Sloan Fellows really looked down on by the normal (2 year) Sloan MBA program? Are there better alternatives for a 1 year MBA? MIT has been a dream for a while but it’s kind of like being told your baby is ugly…
