Is it terrible to expense all 4 parts and exam fee for the CPA exam before my last official day (as I'm one of the unlucky ones to be laid off )?
I was laid off for the first time last wk and I feel completely empty. Does anyone have any advice? I've been talking with recruiters, trying to find connections, but it all feels hollow and hopeless.
Have an average book at best. Somehow an okay agency hired and then fired me. I acquired lots of credit card debt in a short amount of time. Now I don’t feel I’ll get a chance again. I really don’t want to work menial job again but that seems it will soon be my only option.

Question with regards to layoff talks. Are those who are being let go on the bench or being released while on projects? I haven't heard of many ACN layoffs in the former situation...
I don't understand the concept of receiving a 4 on Year End (and getting laid off). There is no set percentage to give people 4's and 5's right? How does one mess up that badly?

Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?

Considering an expert role in healthcare in mid Atlantic region at McKinsey. Any thoughts about culture, wlb, tc, etc? Have read through a bunch of older threads. Opinion seems mixed.

Hi All - I have upcoming final rounds with Deloitte Strategy (Transformation Strategy & Design): 1 case, 2 behavioral. I feel a little under qualified. I’m coming from a non-Big 4 Advisory group. I’ve had the fortunate opportunities to work on strategic cost transformations, capacity modeling, and digital roadmap projects, but can’t help but feel like they’ll be questioning my legitimacy. Any tips or good vibes would be appreciated.

All, you were right. My father in law’s rolex is a fake. I still got it fixed for him. It is a bad fake indeed. There is discoloring, made of steel, the insides don’t have rolex engraved etc etc. However the sentimental value prevailed and all the insights you gave me is a huge lesson for me in checking fakes vs originals. So thank you all!
