I only plan on staying in consulting for about 2 more years then off for an MBA. Would it be more worth it to take a level and pay raise at a different big4 moving to senior level rather than going to associate/analyst level at MBB? These are my two choices at the moment. I want to position myself best for post MBA jobs in industry. Salary will def be lower at MBB compared to the senior level at big4 so not sure if it’s worth the trade off in experience.

Seeking advice on my dilemma. Currently a Manager at Deloitte, with a possible Senior Manager promotion in 2023. No guarantees of course. Awaiting EB3 EAD. Also initiating an EB2 app. Should I try and move to a different Big4 firm if I can get a level bump? New EB2 app, PERM and I-140 approval (premium) might take a year. Will need 485j.

I recently accepted an offer for a new position at another company. The new role requires a TS/SCI clearance. During the investigation will they contact my current employer? I just accepted the new offer and I’m planning on quitting mid January and will start the new position in June. Should I go ahead and tell my current manager that I’ve accepted another position or just wait it out and deal with it if she’s contacted and brings it up before my I give my notice?
Is it okay to talk to multiple recruiters at the same time about different roles? I assume it’s best to be upfront about it? When do they ask you to narrow down to one role if both teams are interested? Role A is more interesting to me but I know I don’t have all the skills required. Role B is not as interesting, but probably better aligned to my skill set.

I took a new job in order to move across the country for my husband's promotion and I hate my new job. The role sold to me by the recruiter and company leadership is not at all what I am actually doing. I am so overworked it's unreal. At first I thought that maybe I just sucked, even though I'm a seasoned sales professional with 11 years experience, but then I found out that I have 227 accounts vs the 35 & 64 that my counterparts have. Do I go over my boss's head and discuss with leadership?

Hi Fishes, I have cleared Qualcomm interview and had initial conversation with HR where she mentioned the CTC I’ll get and HR also sent some stupid form to “Justify” around 10-15 points on team work, motivation and other bs. I asked the HR for a call so we can negotiate CTC and didn’t hear back from her. Been more than a week. Is this much delay normal in Qualcomm? Should I keep waiting or did I get ghosted by HR?
What's your take on VISA Infinite concierge?
The track for education administrators should be ten years of highly effective teaching in the classroom. Same pay scale as classroom teachers with bonus for extend duty and hours. No hires of administrators or staff without teacher input especially in the subject areas. Every school with a principal advisory committee composed parents, teachers, and counselors
