Should I be concerned for my career with lack of billable projects? Background: Analyst hired out of undergrad in July 2020. I have worked on 3 proposals in the last 2 weeks, and 5 in the last 2 months. In the past year since I was hired, I have 8 months of billable work which is actually slightly higher than the other Analysts I joined with. Should I keep collecting paychecks and hoping for projects, or is this a serious issue that should prompt an exit strategy?
I’ve been interviewing with a firm in another state that mentioned they might prefer to hire me on a “contract basis” until I’ve passed the bar in that state before giving me the permanent position. I’m still not totally sure what a “contract basis” means, though. Does anyone have any experience or insight on that?
I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
I’m a product marketer looking to switch into PM. I’m in the interview process for a senior PM role, but the product is not that exciting and I’m a little concerned the company is stale (it’s a legacy product and the company has been around for a while). Would it be worth it to get the PM title? (Alternatively, I’m considering taking a senior PMM or even PMM director role at a series A startup and then making the move to PM later on.) what’s the better move here?

Just drop everything into ARKK and grind at work to get more capital to dump more into ARKK. Their methodology works and is basically what we all want to do but maybe don't have the time to do. Tesla was great but even without it they are crushing the year. Fairly diversified too in tech for healthcare, manufacturing, software, internet etc.

Hi 👋🏻 I’m new here! For people working in big 4 risk assurance, how many clients do you generally juggle at a time and how many hours do you typically work in a week? I just started a few months ago in an IA role for a company after working in external audit. I like the work, but it’s just not a great culture fit and I’m thinking of boomeranging back to public but for IA to get more of that experience.
Was offered an analyst position at VillageMD . Can anyone give me some insight about the culture, pace of work, etc?

My mom is going through a very bad situation with her previous employer who is not paying her her correct retirement benefits after screwing up their paperwork. She worked for a school district for about 15 years. She has a case but she is afraid it’s not high value enough to attract the attention of the attorney. School district is now ghosting her. If anyone has advice or interest, please let me know, thanks so much

Shared this in a comment thread on another post and want to get thoughts — I’m at 9 interviews for an M role at a startup (close to unicorn). The final loops were early this week and the recruiter reached out today to schedule one final interview focused on skills not in the job description. Should I just pull the plug?
For cleared folks: asking for a friend, they are currently going through a TS/SCI w/Poly clearance for a different firm and it’s been a while, but they are interested in a few positions that require a secret somewhere else. If they accept the position with a Secret, will anything happen?
https://joinfishbowl.com/comment_hvuwp The Single Consultants bowl can be great for advice across the spectrum, but then you always end up getting comments like this guy claiming that men and women are equally harassed and there isn’t enough attention on men for this. There is a comment before this in which I say that it’s absolutely not ok for harassment to occur to either gender, but harassment and fear of being attacked is a constant item women need to think about on a regular basis, and men so not. This was his response.
Have any of your agencies taken steps towards acknowledging and addressing mental health issues in your office? Care to share, good or bad? Hoping to get ideas to take back to our leadership. Thanks!!
