How normal is it to be pulled off a trial team because you tell your boss you are moving after trial? I have a trial coming up first week of Oct. This case has been my baby, and I’m going to try it with my boss. I tell my boss up front that, for family reasons, I’ve gotten a new job and will be moving to another city two weeks after trial will likely end. He then gives my trial witnesses to another attorney, but is still going to make me do grunt work. Is he unreasonable or am I?
Got a new car in NJ last month. Temperory registration expires tomorrow and dealer citing delays due to COVID for new plates. Says I will not get for next 2 to 3 weeks but can drive as cops understand delays due to COVID. What do I do? I need a car to be able to drive my kid around.

Has anyone experienced prenatal depression? I’m 10 weeks pregnant with my 2nd (I have a 1.5 yo) - I’ve always been a very happy person, so these new emotions have hit me like a ton of bricks. Pregnancy has been very easy, no sickness, no side effects. Just the nonstop crying and feeling overwhelmed no matter what. I have a lot of love and support so I feel stupid falling apart.
What the what?! 6 hour delay in DFW, missed all client meetings. Guess I'm a real consultant now?

A Partner reached out to me and mentioned I was staffed on a project. Two days and Career team still doesn’t reach out to me confirming my project. I’m busting my ass, before the Partner tells me that I would not be billable till we get the internal approval and I should charge my timesheet to offline work. This is my first job. Should this have happened? Can I do anything now? What can I do to manage this going forward?
I’m terrified of pregnancy but not of motherhood (except for the noise, kids are so loud). Pregnancy/breastfeeding looks horrible to me, but I’d feel bad about missing out on kids because I was scared of something that wasn’t so bad. It doesn’t help that I don’t know a single pregnant person—in my 30s and none of my friends have children! Any moms out there who can speak about what it’s actually like?
I rolled off a project 3 months ago. They keep reaching out and asking me to help onboard new teammates to give them historical knowledge (it’s a long-term project). Do I have to keep doing this? Or does it get to a point where I can say I don’t have the time and there must be someone more recent who can help?
As the only woman on a production surrounded by 5 male creatives, 2 male producers, I’ve been struggling to get myself heard. My opinions and feedback have been so different from everyone else’s. Ironically, my clients are a team of women too. Deep in my gut, I know they’d want what I am asking for. But how do I push for not just what I want, but what I think the client wants.
I've a question on what sections to put on a regular resume. I see some people are using consulting style resume for outside companies as well. Do you think it's a good idea to devide work experience by projets? Or is it better to have "projects highlights" separate from work experience.. something like: intro>functional expertise> project highlights>work experience>education?

What are the most effective ways of answering a question that you know you and your team truly don’t have an answer to during a client call? I’m usually pretty direct in saying something like “We’ll circle back on that, but [insert some insight that you can spin as relating to the question]” One or two other managers iv worked with usually try to give a BS answer and I perceive the client as seeing through the BS, which makes me cringe. Which approach do you usually take?
