Anyone in this field struggle with social anxiety? I have a pretty severe case and am constantly uncomfortable and anxious at work. Any advice?

Reporting what a friend of mine told me so take it with a pinch of salt (NOT a psychologist!). Write down on a notebook (to keep at home, not at work) what you do not like at your job. It could be "do not like my boss" to "the coffee machine is always broke" or "xyz frustrates me when..." etc. Every evening write down everything that made you sad/anxious/pissed off during the day. Repeat the process for about 3 weeks - 3 months. If you read it all you should start seeing a pattern of what makes you uncomfortable, you are trying to pin point the problem. Once you find the core of the problem(s), start looking how you can solve them. Depending on the seriousness or topic it would helpful to talk to some expert in the field. EXAMPLE: You find out that you feel inferior to your peers because abc. You may talk to a psychologist, then to HR... You feel lonely and the job is stressful (in a toxic way). Try to revive an old time passion (music or sports works great), try something new (new activities, new friend from a different background), start reading, join a local religious community ... I know this answer may not have helped you much but without much information it is the best I could do. If you have any kind of question do not hesitate texting me! :-)

I’m surprised so many of you want to “exit to FAANG” - I find Facebook/Amazon/Google to be pretty despicable companies - Apple has questionable moral standards when it comes to making their products, Netflix seems like the best of the bunch.

It is embarrassing to read some of these posts by Democrats in here. There is no shame or filter. Attack and insult the opponent in any kind of way to make yourself feel better. Liberalism is a mental illness at this point.

Sometimes when I feel like I'm having just an average day and my boss's skype says out of office I'm scared she has some kind of sixth sense about it and is on her way to come fire me. Anyone else?

Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on. Also, we get put on so many random engagements it’s hard to build tangible skills. I am talking big 4, MBB is a different game.

During phone screens do recruiters ask your current salary and desired salary range? If so what do you say ? I’d assume for current salary use total comp and for desired add 10% for the minimum

So, thoughts on starting own firm right now. Laid off and doesn't seem to be tons of firms recruiting. I think I can start off for 3k with my partner and try and kill whatever we can get.

That moment when you’re hearing a presentation on the theme of Cannes being about diversity & inclusion and you look around realizing the 4 presenters are all WHITE DUDES in their 40s. SMH.

Are there any openings (NY area) for digital strategy consulting that has exposure to the implementation side of things? I've noticed that alot of "digital strategy" is emphasized on media planning/marketing but wondering more so on the generalist side that includes aspects of planning, product management, implementation/execution, etc.. Thanks in advance folks

I just started my new job. Had zero certs. If I get 5 certs over the next 6 months should I ask for a raise? I got 2 certs in my first month already.
