I heard from a HR recruiter that Donald Trump wouldn't be able to get a job as a MD at Accenture because of his business bankruptcies. Take it for what you want but it was a statement that was made in my presence 🤔

Does anyone else feel like they’re consistently having to prove themselves every day? I don’t mean usual “trying to go above and beyond at work” I mean the nagging feeling that you might get fired if you don’t accomplish every email task or chat request that may or may not be directed to you. Constantly anxious at this job.

Curious for thoughts on why a firm who laid off associates last year—many of whom “just happened” to be parents—is celebrated by Diversity Lab and other organizations for its diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts?
