With rent, student loans and other financial obligations, I'm just making ends meet and have a paltry savings. Feeling rather depressed.

You'll be fine kiddo. Keep your head down at work and keep plugging. Keep your head up in real life and be proud of what you've accomplished. You'll most likely be the boss of most of the pricks on here because your smart and down to earth. And when you are don't forget about making sure I have a high paying position.

I put in my two weeks about a week and a half ago. Upon putting in my two weeks, I immediately told all my managers so we can start planning for transition. They all sat on it and now I'm running around like a chicken with it's head cut off trying to transition work. I kinda want to push back because I'm super overwhelmed and I honestly don't know how I'll get through everything they want me to do without working the whole weekend. I am just being a big baby? Or ideas of how to push back?

So I had an interview last Friday for a contract to hire role that I thought went really well. So up until today there wasn’t a peep from the recruiter hiring for role, so I reached out. The recruiter then asked me how comfortable I was in a fast paced environment. I responded by telling her that after working a mix of agency and client side, yes. I honestly thought the answer was pretty self explanatory. She then pushed for more details, which I provided an example of. Red flag?

I like my team and my leaders.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
