My fellow black Green Dots (Deloitte), have you read the email from Janet? I am glad to be working at a company that openly acknowledges what the black community has been going through with COVID. Coming from a previous company that was borderline and at times blatantly racist, it was such a warm feeling to see such a message from our CEO. While at many companies there is room for improvement with inclusion policies, I do think that Deloitte is doing a much better job than most. Thoughts?

Should I be concerned for my career with lack of billable projects? Background: Analyst hired out of undergrad in July 2020.

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?

Question for everyone out there, I am a business analyst and thinking about exploring new career opportunities. What are the thoughts of the job market right now for folks who are currently employed?

I feel like I might be one of the first ones let go if I go elsewhere, and I know that many people are looking for jobs due to Covid related layoffs.
