Recruiter said that due to office closure(holidays), I won't be getting the written offer until the new year. I was thinking of enjoying my holidays but now m stressed🤣.
Why does it take so long? Is it a complex internal process for drafting and approvals of offer letters?
Please send positive vibes🙏

I’ve worked in clinical research in the academic/non profit world for the past five years. I want to transition to a role in pharma or a CRO, but haven’t been successful yet because I don’t have industry experience. Does anyone know of any CROs/pharma companies that are willing to hire someone with research expertise from an academic medical center rather than already in industry? Thanks!

So frustrated at steady weight gain in the past 10 yrs since starting consulting - even w/regular exercise doesn't budge. Took a 2 mo. sabbatical a while ago and dropped 10 lbs. Regained all since. ☹️
I’ve been in consulting for the past 15 years and I’m now exhausted. Not because of the work but because the Millenials on my projects spend less time doing the work and more time complaining about how the role doesn’t gel with their career goals.

Just read something in another bowl about older industry hires in consulting and how they may be a misfit for the team. I’m now wondering if I’m too old for this gig. I’m 40 and just started as an SM at a big 4. Mistake? Should I return to the industry? Is ageism worse in consulting?
