I graduated with my MD and also have my MBA, not from top tier schools. Due to personal reasons I can’t continue on to Residency. Trying to find other opportunities…was thinking strategic/medical consulting but not sure how to break in without any contacts. Been applying to medical sales roles but not hearing back due to lack of experience I imagine. Any thoughts/tips/ideas? I worked in marketing analytics for 5 yrs before med school.

Thanks!

Hi fishies! Considering an internal big 4 move from Western Europe to Dubai. Not sure about WLB and whether there’ll be enough growth and learning opportunities after reading some of the threads here. Anyone up for sharing their experience? Especially concerned about sexism / racism as a WOC…and whether moving back to Europe in a few years will be difficult because the ME experience won’t be considered valuable.

Hi All, I have been in TCS for the past 3.5 years. I have asked my supervisor for promotion, he gives excuses of Band criteria and COVID-19.
Will my promotion to ITA happen automatically once I complete 4 years in TCS or will it have to be done by the Actual process of begging managers and HRs to get the promotion.
Additionally, if I do get promoted to ITA, how many months will I have to wait to resign.
TIA.

Any tips or suggestions on what kind of questions to ask during an informal coffee chat with an employee of the company I'll be applying to? This person is not on the hiring team, but it's a small company so I'm sure they'll talk with the hiring team after.

Thanks!
