Feels that way from the Tax side of deals. Soooooo slow

February was pretty slow for me. March looks like it’ll be similar. Trying to focus on sourcing new clients and marketing efforts

My deals have slowed way down in the last few weeks.

Deal flow was slow Jan-Feb, but picking up hard now.

What happens if you don’t hit your billable hours? I am a first-year that had a very slow February and slow start to March. I’ve been reaching out to various teams for work but things seem slow now & I’m worried that I’m not going to hit my 1800 target.

I averaged 250+ billables for Q1. Took a vacation in April and since being back, work has been pretty chill (~35/week) and I havent taken any new work. However, I am finding myself not very productive and the smallest things are taking me way longer than they should. Cant get myself to do these things but then that makes me anxious. Feeling stuck. Has anyone else experienced a similar situation and what did you do? I’m a junior associate in corporate.
