Any tips on telling project lead you’ve put in your two weeks? Want to be semi respectful, but also figure the usual “why, where what” will come up and not trying to burn bridges near tail end of project.

I feel like the why should be pretty obvious for most people at this firm

Just have answers and a good transition plan. This isn’t the first time they’ve dealt with someone leaving, it’s only a big deal if you make it one.

Lmao can’t transition what I do/know in 2 weeks is the issue.

Include the usual stuff like I really enjoyed working with you and learned so much. I’m committed to helping ensure a smooth transition.

I've become really jaded about consulting. I find all so often you need to tell the client what they want to hear to keep their business and I feel like so much of the what I recommend doesn't actually get implemented. I'm looking to make a career switch so I can both create and execute on my strategies. A product management path seems very promising for this. Does anyone who switched from consulting to product management have any recommendations of h helpful PM books, courses, or programs?

So, a spot I made (concept to completion) got shelved due to COVID forcing the client’s marketing plan to change. During that time, my partner and I were laid off. Recently, the spot aired, but the agency credits a different team for the work – me, my parter, and my CDs aren’t listed. Do I ask the agency to correct it? Just throw it in my book with explanation? Just take the L and chalk it up to that being how the industry is?

I'm definitely preparing to discuss my take home assignment project, but is it wise or a waste of time to prepare a slide deck for my portfolio projects?

Hello! Seeking advice regarding our mortgage company not complying with our FHA Loan Closing Disclosure.Per FHA requirements, homeowners insurance has to be collected through escrow. However they've only been paying property taxes. This extra money that accumulated in escrow won't cover what's owed to insurance because property taxes and insurance went up.
