A pharma client requires a urine drug test. Will my ADHD meds make me test "positive"? If so, is there a chance to provide my prescription to a medical officer to clarify? (cont)
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.
Does anyone have examples of their invoice template? I’m working a part-time contract for a company, and they do want my time tracked by project. Hoping to not spend time making from scratch.
Im a recent grad on a tech implementation project for a small firm. I’m finding it challenging because I’m expected to know how to solution a user problem based on the system that I really don’t know all the ins and outs of. I enjoy the req gathering/PMO activities, but thinking of data mapping and integrations is such a new way of thinking than a typical strategy-based case study. Do strategy ppl find these tech implementation difficult?
Anyone familiar with EY Austin audit practice? Culture, client base, busy season hours etc?EY
Any insight into Katten’s private client group?
First time freelancing client-side and it's 🤯. No one really cares about deadlines, budgets, or external commitments. Is it this company (tech startup), or is this life client-side?
Is it helpful for a non tech to get into Project management etc... doing CSM certification etc. Pls guide.
Client reached out and asked if I would be interested in joining his team last month. Said I’ll follow up in a week and didn’t. Is it ok to reach out a month later to see if the offer is still on?
Has anyone ever had Google as a client for non tech work? Curious if their rep for treating consultants terribly is true.
My skin isn't the best and with WFH - I have been doing the basics : moisturiser and sunscreen everyday which has really helped. Next year, I'm likely to be back full time in the office and on client site - and I want to do the bare minimum makeup wise. Can someone provide me your "bare minimum" routines and also - makeup/skincare brands! :)
What's the pay range to ask from Amazon if you're accepted in a Project Manager kind of role and you come from big 4 consulting as a manager? Is 160-170K a good range to give? Too high or too low?
About to get rolled off a project, manager thinks I’m underperforming. Has anyone gotten rolled off before and bounced back or do you usually get fired shortly after? This is the first time
How is your agency handling client-related travel, as it relates to coronavirus? We got some email from WPP, but it doesn’t seem like enough. What steps are y’all taking? Any insights to share?
Are consultants only seemingly more capable (at times) because we dedicate all our client-facing time on a single project vs. juggling multiple projects? All my client's leadership teams seem like a mess but I think it's just due to their lack of opportunity to focus on anything for long enough to know what's going on. Am I thinking about this completely wrong?
Hi, in need of a comedy writer for a freelance project starting next week. It is for two videos for an internal sales conference in Jan. Thanks!
Grateful for my support system. I burst into tears during a zoom call with a project leader today. He said the sweetest thing anyone ever said to me in years. A quick catch-up turned into a therapy session.
If a CD assigns more creatives to a project than there are budgeted billable hours, is that squarely on him/her or is Account also culpable?
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Hello there! Presently on EB2 and of Indian nationality with Priority date in Aug 2016. Since I am a people manager and we have an office in Toronto, we were looking into getting a PR in Canada and having me work there for a year before coming back to the US on a L1A visa. Thus shortening my GC wait time. However with the recent EB3 retrogression, they are looking into possibly downgrading me to EB3 instead. Which route (L1A or EB3) would be quicker and dependable? How to convince them? Thanks!
Hey everyone. Recently interviewed at a registered investment advisor, 10 person shop. What’s everyone’s views on hand written thank you notes vs emails post first round interview? Both people I met with gave me their business cards without me asking which I think is a good sign. Usually like doing emails vs hand written notes because you can get a response or further conversation vs possibly not hearing anything from a hand written note.
Hi all, Need your advice. One of our worker’s wife is fighting cancer. We know that he needs to take care of her and work the same time to cover medical bills. So we decided to collect money for him. Should I do it secretly and only let him know after I’m done collecting money or should I get his permission first? I need to figure out which way would be less uncomfortable for him. Thanks!

If i’m on third year of H1B but leave for school (for completely different field), can I use the existing H1B when I get a job after graduating from grad school? Or do I need to go through new h1b lottery?
My best friend is an immigrant. She has lived in the USA for ten years now and has a great career. However she says america is very lonely. Her fellow immigrant friends from different countries also say this. She says culture here is friendly but distant and ppl are too wrapped up in their home life and less so in their social life. She misses daily socializing that was a norm in her home country. I’ve lived here all my life so can’t judge but curious as to whether other immigrants here agree

Is it okay to tell your boss you aren’t feeling well and need to take a sick day because of medication side effects? We are going into the office later in the week and I don’t want her to think I have something contagious. Started new meds and the side effects are intense today so I’m just off my game and need to log off, but not sure if that’s inappropriate or TMI.
If the Dems come out and say Biden has COVID the week of the debate and needs to “quarantine”, it’s going to be one the most predictably embarrassing moments in modern political history. America doesn’t need a coward as President.
