Hi I’m looking to make a career change. I’m looking for HR Program/Project Manager roles. I have 8+ years of experience in full cycle HR and project management.
In my Current role I’ve developed and managed two large training programs, one of which was awarded a $1.4M grant, and both have been a great success.
Does anyone have any remote leads they’d be open to referring? My background involves government and healthcare and I’m proficient in JIRA and am open to other industries. Thanks!
Hi my IBM sharks 👋🏻
Has anyone being on bench received automated mails from RoBoT_System@xxx.mail.ibm.com and been told something like this-
"This is in continuation of the multiple e-mails on the subject, right since you were 45 days away from your last assignment closure date. We expect that you understand your personal responsibility to get assigned to a relevant project within IBM, and also expect that you take steps to achieve the same"
Is this something to be worried about?

My 3rd company(product) after working for 2 service based
My previous company I was working for a client where ppl frm Diff service based companies work together. Everyone have dedication towards work as the role was good.
Now the problem is with the current cmpny guys don't care about the work and the role isn't that challenging and don't see people take seriously abt work like loging quite late while the role requires to be in shift at right time.
Hard to mingle.
My main contact at my client always interrupts me and talks over me when he asks a question and I start to answer it. At first I was trying to be polite, now I just get louder and keep talking. 💁🏽♀️
I was under the assumption that Nagarro is offering permanent work from home opportunity. During HR discussion when I asked about it, the HR said it is specific to projects and if the client is fine with your wfh you can take it. What's the scenario guys?
So I have a huge crush on my co worker, we’re on the same project and same job position but this is the first time I’ve had an office crush. We’re very friendly and chat almost through out the day. I also know that there’s a possibility of me shifting companies as soon as this project is over (Feb ‘23). What should I do?
A. Should I remain professional and not say a word? Wait till I’m out to make a move?
B. Casually ask him out?
C. Ask myself to get over it?
Looking for recruiting firms to help me find my next project / program management role.
Struggling to determine which firms can help with PM roles AND I'm struggling to get the ones I do find to respond to me. It may have something to do where I'm at in my career - 15+ years of PM experience & director-level roles at my last 2 companies - so more exec level but not quite C-Suite. Have tons of one-off recruiters hitting me up on LinkedIn about contract PM roles but that's not what I want.

Are there any groups at Salesforce that value developers? I'm in Q Branch and it baffles me how solution engineers make $30-$40k (I make $99k) more than me when I've been developing on the Salesforce platform for 8 years. I get that they are client facing but if it wasn't for my team and me, they wouldn't land as many big deals. I could make $140k elsewhere for context

Being a PM you are challenged every day to grow your skills in oder to deliver your projects successfully. To exchange the leadership learnings we have daily, join this bowl:
Everyone keeps saying tech is the future, get out of advertising. As a PM, any advice on how to even begin jumping ship?
Has any PM here been a producer or made switches back and forth? I’m curious about this.
My new team uses google docs for everything & a lot of it is repetitive info which include content calendars, status, email strategy, tracking codes, etc. Any recos on a program to use to consolidate?
Are there any PMs here who work in architecture? I’m thinking about changing industries and would love to hear what it’s like.
Any tips on managing up? I have a new supervisor who is a bit of a micromanager. She says she delegates the task to me and will provide oversight, but in reality she just does everything herself and asks me questions that are already on the PM tool. Would love any advice that you have!
Hey folks! Looking to learn some more about Code + Theory and what the production team looks like there. I’ve heard great things and had a couple good interviews but want to make sure that if I make a move it’s the right fit. I’d be coming from a fairly similar agency
Seeking advice. I work in fashion as a Creative Producer and I'm looking to transition to a PM or Digital Producer role with an AD agency to get more experience. I haven't been able to land a PM role because I'm lacking agency experience and no one seems to want to train a newbie. Should I take a pay cut (possibly entry level role) for an opportunity to get the digital experience I need? Would love some feedback!
Is anybody using Microsoft Planner for project management? Seems like it can be beneficial since we are on Microsoft for most things.
Anybody have a great senior PM /AD level resume example to share? Looking for some inspiration to freshen mine up. DM me. Thank you in advance!!
My group director wants me to start working with the initiation phase and eventually become a project manager. What are the best online courses and certifications for advertising?
What can I do to prepare myself as an incoming project coordinator? I start in January fresh out of college.
Does anyone have tips or tricks on how to best learn and grow starting in this field? I haven’t had any internships directly in PM, but I have had coursework.
Any advice you might have given to yourself when you first started, or what to pay attention to to excel early? Is there anything I should brush up on in the coming month to best prepare myself? Thanks!
When you went from PM to Sr. PM, what increase did you get, and did you have to move agencies to get it?
Shameless plug here… Does anyone know agencies hiring digital producers? I have a fantastic PM that’s now available due to budget cuts (‘Rona strikes again). Would appreciate any referrals.
I've been a digital advertising PM now about 3.5 years. I accidentally through negotiations for more money wound up as a senior PM at my last agency and I constantly feel like an imposter.
I never feel good enough for the role and the one thing I think I need is a window into the life of a GREAT PM. I'm tired of feeling like my teams are disappointed in me.
Can someone shed some light on their daily activities and what it takes to be a success in this role? I know it differs every where.

It’s an unfortunate assumption people make all the time. We’re more than that and should make it known we’re not glorified admins. First start by setting expectations at beginning of mtgs. If I’m creative reviews, you’re not solely responsible nor accountable for revisions or updates they’re to make to their own work. When it comes to internal reviews, perhaps if there’s also an account person you both take notes and compare to ensure accuracy. For client reviews, most of times if not all it should fall on the account team. At end of the day it’s not who takes notes rather than it being overall team accountability. Bring your strengths to each meeting and remember it’s not all on you.
All the time. 80% of my last job was scheduling meetings and asking people if they could move other meetings because no one had any time to meet. I think if you can show you are proactive about and reliable in doing those parts of the job, hopefully they’ll cool it a bit on the bossiness.
All the time when starting on new teams. It’s infuriating.
This was one of my pet peeves in advertising. I moved client side a few years ago and thank god everyone is an adult and responsible for taking their own notes, scheduling their own meetings etc
what role did you take client side?
I would set expectations/define your take on your role w the team. Maybe they don’t realize how they are coming across.
