I'm currently in Tech Sales. However, I want to work with FAANG; it's literally my greatest dream. I have a UX Design Cert from General Assembly that I earned last year.
After months of applications and rejections, I left and got into tech sales because I knew I'd easily get a job and bills had to be paid.
I think I failed to get jobs because of a lack of visual design skills (my specialties were in project management and user research), and weak portfolio. What should I do?

Anyone here interviewing or have had recent offers post covid with MBB but will require H1B sponsorship?
Hello. I am having difficulty getting a manager role at my company. I have an MBA, a Black Belt in Lean Six Sigma, 6 years manufacturing experience in nutraceuticals. They say I’m not ready, but the managers above me do not have degrees or certifications. What should I do? How do I get what I’m looking for?
Will a cover letter significantly help my application while applying to MBB? Or significantly hurt if I don’t attach one? There’s nothing unusual about my resume to explain (i.e. employment gaps, reapplication, etc) so my CL would primarily be explaining why I want to work for the firm.
Anyone from Monitor Deloitte - Dubai is willing to refer me for a position there. I have almost 1 year and a half ( to present) at PwC Dubai and I recently earned my MBA.

Hi, Fishbowl! Just graduated with my MBA and finally looking to put my degree to work after helping run the family business a year after I received my bachelors.

I’m a strategy consultant in a brand/design firm, specialising in traditional branding, innovation and experiences. Was wondering about avenues to join Big 4 or even MBB as an experienced hire to work in consumer branding/innovation. Can I go in as a specialist? Would I need an MBA on top of my business undergrad?
I want to acquire Google certified Associate cloud engineer certification as part of the MLT program but the certification is not reimbursable . HR was saying there would be some voucher available around the same in CoE. Could you please suggest where I can get the voucher ?
My husband has been unemployed since last year. He has a part time gig holding him over until he finds something better, but he is struggling. Overall he has 10 YOE in hospitality (server, bartender, events, and restaurant manager) and 2 YOE in sales.
He’s open to school, but that will only delay us further. Open to getting a cert.
Where do we go from here? What are some fields he could enter in with this experience? Or something with OTJ training?
Is it worth it to go back to school for a graduate degree even if I’ve been in Compliance for 10 yrs? Or obtaining certifications is a better path. Don’t want to spend 50k on a degree like a Compliance one that is really not going to do anything for me salary wise. Thoughts? Thank you!!

Is it a career dead-end if I want to transition to a larger firm in the future? They seem to be growing really fast, so I feel like there’s room for quick growth and career advancement, based on some conversations I’ve had, but I don’t wanna shoot myself in the foot long term. Also heard lots of MBB and other tier 1/tier 2 firms are contracting them for parts of their engagements. Thoughts? Colliers International

This is an interesting situation. I think that OP should figure out a way to depart this work stream or project with a talk track like this…“XYZ workstream/project is something that energizes me because it’s more aligned with my career goals.

McKinsey & Company I’m in between having accepted my offer and starting. I’ve read advice recommending getting your WFH set up ready before starting, and want to take that. I assume the answer is “no”, but could I spend my $150 one-time WFH allowance now and submit expense receipts after starting? Any chance they’d pay back spending prior to start date that was within a certain window (my last company allowed this for moving-related expenses, as an example) of the start? McKinsey & Company

MBB em level role vs. director level tech (non FAANG) exit? Coming from b4, roughly 10 yoe. I know it’s probably a personal preference thing but hoping to get opinions here. Tech role is $190k base plus a 30% target bonus. MBB role i got a verbal offer without a comp figure yet but my understanding is it’s around there, maybe 10-20% higher (or maybe much higher depending on bonus).
Didn’t fully expect to get the MBB offer honestly, but both beat my 180/198 b4 comp. Now i’m torn.

MBB coffee chats during on campus recruiting - any advice on how to prepare? I heard the coffee chats will be in groups with 2-4 students in each group
Out of curiosity, is consulting, esp MBB consulting not as coveted as they were several years ago? I keep seeing advanced technical (data science) skills required for many industry positions, even if the role is strategic. The traditional strategy/biz ops roles seem to become more and more selective, are typical exit paths from mbb consulting becoming more of a “red sea” situation?
McKinsey & Company Had my final round McKinsey & Company yesterday. My last round was around end of day. Recruiter told me I would hear back a few hours later cause I had an outstanding offer that expired that day, but didn’t hear back…do you think I’d hear back sometime this weekend? Or prob in a few business days
