Hi everyone. It's a bit awkward for me to say this but I'm looking for copywriting intern/ jr copywriter/freelance roles. If anyone knows of a place please let me know. Thank you.
Starting my job in public soon. What’s the deal with tattoos? Although things are still virtual, l’d like to start rebuilding my work wardrobe after losing a considerable amount of weight. I have an inner bicep tattoo, but would eventually like to get more visible tattoos. I typically wore long sleeves/sweaters when I was an intern, but it got pretty hot in the summer. Fully aware this is a “decision with consequences” but wondering if this is still something people worry about?
Interned at PwC this summer (going to be junior this fall), got a return offer for next summer that expires Sep 1st, got an interview with McKinsey approximately mid September and they said that I could expedite if I have competing offers. Does it help or hurt my chances of getting the Mck internship if I expedite and do it ASAP or will there not be enough turn around time in general to get an answer?
I am an intern and about to start my tax internship this summer. But I am really interested in doing advisory and not tax, what should I do? I don’t wanna ruin my chances of getting an offer
Recently, I have applied an internship at EY, but I didn’t received the assessment test. Does anyone know why？Thank you！EY
Thoughts on GS+P as an intern/junior?
Anyone from KPMG willing to refer me for a advisory summer intern under digital lighthouse? Worked at deloitte for 2 years top performance, going to masters now. :)
How can I best impress as an intern?
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.
Just finishing my first week in as an audit intern and genuinely I have no idea what I'm doing or even a general idea of the audit process. The senior associate left the engagement last week so it's just me and an associate, and they don't have time to give me instruction. Am I stupid or did the e-learns not prepare me for any of this? The training told me I'd be auditing cash but I haven't even touched a bank reconciliation.
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?
If we were rejected for an internship position is it still okay to contact the recruiter for a jr position?
That moment when your intern thinks they're above ordering dinner for the team - know your place.
I did an internship with a boutique consulting firm that got extended for a full year while I was in school full time as well. On top of that I have 16 months of experience in my B4/T2 consulting firm, and I have a ton of other experience on top of that interning at banks and startups. TLDR; I have 3+ years of experience, 1 year at a small consulting shop and 1.5 years at B4 upon graduation. Is it true that none of this experience really counts?
Any advice on finding a pre-mba internship in tech? Will begin firing off cold emails soon unless there's a more tactful way of getting this going!
Current undergrad. Have internship offers for two very different roles. The first is a public sector generalist management consulting position in DC. The second is for a smaller early-stage incubation venture capital firm in NYC. I've always been somewhat of a generalist, with varying interests. I feel as though based on my decision my life could go in very different directions... Any insights? Esp if you're in public sector consulting or have made a similar dec. Gratitude.
How many people are suddenly managing an intern they didn’t ask for because project leadership requested one without any idea or scope of what they’d actually do? 🙋🏼♀️
Can anyone in Deloitte cyber risk answer why I might have gotten rejected? An application review analyst reached out to me after I was referred to apply and asked about my travel preferences, citizenship, and if I had at least 2 years of experience post grad. I said I’ve been at Kpmg for a year and have 1 year of internship experience in total. Was the 2 years minimum really a deal breaker? I’ve been on cyber projects at Kpmg
What career tips do you have for me? What’s the best way to make a career change without breaking the bank? I’m a mid-career professional who chose to to go to law school at night in my 30s. I am now a licensed attorney in CA and I’m looking to shift away from my current career in public policy to (hopefully) a career in criminal litigation. I am the sole breadwinner for a family of five. Because of these circumstances, I could not do any internship, externships, or law clerking in law school.
After 5 years of good ratings I was terminated from a regional CPA firm, but my last day is next month. Am I obligated to tell a prospective employer I was fired while I am technically still employed?
Saw over 15% jump for homeowners insurance vs last year’s same policy. Is this due to high material cost or what? Is this widespread impact on home insurance premiums?
To the partners/directors/senior managers: can you give examples of mistakes/lessons you learned throughout your careers? Any really big F-Ups that really made you think about staying/leaving?

Anyone here from the Google office in Detroit? Seeing a job I’m qualified for and I’m wondering what the culture of the office is like. It seems like a small office compared to other Google offices I’ve seen? Does it have a cafeteria with free lunch like the Ann Arbor office? 😉
Some intern really messed up 😤

Just got a job offer with significant raise and will be a change in job role😃. How should I go about talking with my current people manager about the move? I want to keep good relationship with this manager. I’m planning to apply to MBA this Fall (around Sept/Oct 2021) and will need recommendation letters, and would love to discuss with her NOW about writing me a recommendation letters around August (which is after I leave the company already). Very anxious about this move 😟

What’s the fastest way to get a COVID-19 test result? Urgent care places say 2 days for RTPCR results. Someone suggested going directly to a hospital for a same day result but on calling them, hospitals are saying tests only for in- patients who are going for surgery etc.Appreciate any help 🙏
I have 2 phone interviews tomorrow and am dreading the usual question about salary expectations. How do you answer it? I don’t want to undervalue myself or rule myself out!
What "hard truths" or insights has the coronavirus crisis revealed about your own firm and our larger industry? Let's be pretty open and honest here.
I have 10+ years of experience Agency side, but looking to move Client side with remote work. I've applied for a number of roles either directly on Client sites or via LinkedIn, but haven't even received anything other than a straight rejection at the first stage. Wondering if anyone has experienced similar and overcome it/any tips. My resume has a number of large Agencies and global clients on it, with (IMO at least) some nice success stories, but wondering if I'm missing something obvious.
