From what firm to what firm?

Without knowing more than just "digital practice ", my hunch is that your industry will likely benefit from these times. Note how much more virtual needs are required to properly function these days.

Same situation

I’m in the same position. I’ve given this a lot of thought and to me the opportunity far outweighs the potential negatives. What helped me make the decision was asking myself this question: would I still make this move if the salary was the same? I know our situations is likely different but helpfully this provides some perspective.

I wouldn’t worry too much if they’re hiring you directly onto a project. This gives you time to make an impact. 6-7 months is a long time regardless of economic situations.

In the same position!!

I’m starting my new job next week, but my new firm’s been really helpful setting up my remote workspace and everything.. I’m hoping I’ll be able to generate value from the get go and won’t be laid off even with the virus..

Same boat...made the decision to stay put.

Finance & strategy at Google vs product strategy TikTok? I’m a current student graduating in a few weeks and was offered a full time role at Google with great pay. However, I am interning at TikTok now and the internship would go beyond my grad date... which feels weird. This particular manager said the internship position will not convert to full time (i spoke to a few of his former interns and they’re still looking for jobs at TikTok). Should I hold onto TikTok just to stay in product space?

WFH/Layoff/Security
Hi,
CCTC including all benefits is 16.57 with 8.3 YOE, primarily focused on Manual Testing.
Is it worth looking for another opportunity?
I am afraid after seeing layoffs news of EPAM, Publicis Sapient & most of the other companies calling employees in the office.
I love my WFH in PwC India & base location of Kolkata. & the best thing is stability in PwC India, they never lay off!!

I’ve got about 20 years cross channel experience in marketing, split between big brands and startups, and I’m considering pivoting into a data science/data analyst role. I know it will initially be a step back in comp but is it at all realistic for a person with certificate level experience in data analysis but a decent marketing management background to expect $150-200k comp or is that mostly for degreed candidates (or not realistic at all)? Any guidance here is greatly appreciated.

Advice for a career pivot in tax?

While I enjoy my job, it has become clear I’m not sure I want to do tax compliance forever. I am a very hard-worker and high performer, but it feels like the amount of work does not reflect pay or respect in tax.

I have considered tax M&A, tax technology or FP&A but would love to learn more about what each would look like before making the jump. If I could redo it all, I would become a trader or do something in finance, but that seems very far fetched (cont)
