As a lateral you should have been assigned to a reporting manager. Try checking with him/her what's your project status? They must have hired you for an existing project or potential new project. Also check other projects under them or if they have knowledge of requirements in other verticals.


That I don't know. Even I joined recently. But you can try. Have a conversation with your reporting manager. Check if they have any openings for your current primary skill. If not, mention you have other secondary skills and are willing to work on them. I doubt they will train you for the new skill but if you are trained and knowledgeable on your secondary skill, let them know.


Did you get any project?

That's a good thing to know

Guys am really concerned about the EPB deduction.. I still have 75 days.. in NP But the responses am reading in various groups about EPB deduction is hilarious..

Or else I would really not give damn about the work.. Just login and loggoff.. Any suggestions PS: Many post suggest EPB from Mar 21' till LWD deducted HCL T
