Hey guys. Was laid off as a generalist consultant last month. My eventual goal is to get into data analytics and data science. At this point I’m really good with excel and have some working knowledge in both SQL and tableau. I feel kinda lost still, what should I be learning specifically? I’d love to chat and learn about what you guys do and a bit of mentoring (if you’re up for it). Thanks in advance!

Lately, I was laid off;perpetrators are colluding to block opportunities. People who supported me are looking away. This time I have no hope. I get nightmares every day.

"why are you looking for a new role?"

What's the point of this question?

We ask our candidates this and I don't really care what the answer is. It seems like we're asking the candidate to lie to us. The real answer is always unflattering.

"I would like better compensation or better working conditions"

"I was fired from my previous job"

"I don't like my manager"

"I have disagreements with management"

All terrible answers. And any "good" answers come across as fake to me.
