Hello Fishes, How to find a Development project in TCS ? Soon I will be released from my current project. I have 3.8 YOE and want to change my Tech Stack. Thanks.
Any tips for building a client base from scratch? I’m a 4th year associate at a firm of 12 attorneys. I practice in business, compliance, and real estate (primarily on partners’ files) and don’t litigate. Most of the partners’ clients are wealthy friends or friends of friends (not my circle). Associates are not referred business, even cold calls, and so far “networking” events like Chamber of Commerce luncheons have been a bust. I equate a book to autonomy and career choice and pressure is on.
Nice way to tell your client and her marketing team that they all schedules too many meetings and your teams can't get their god damn work done.
If you are thinking about going to the client site or the office tomorrow think to yourself, Am I saving lives? If the answer is NO then WFH!
Something’s been weighing on my mind. I messed up in a steering committee & tripped infront of the Sr. Client Stakeholders. I made a few other mistakes and was rolled off by my manager (SM) b/c I sucked and it was a higher burn engagement he needed a stronger BA. Now I find out he might’ve been laid off and I can’t help but to think it was my fault. We never really talked after this engagement but I feel like it’s my clumsiness that him fired and it makes me feel guilty and give a me anxiety.
TMW you hug a client and then awkwardly decide you really should have just shaken hands...
I was diagnosed with mild ADHD, and partially why I went into project management is that I wanted to challenge myself for long term initiatives. Although I’m learning amazing things, I still need a lot of support at times. In addition, multi term or year projects give me anxiety, along with a number of personal obligations (I take care of my mom). My projects include well known ERP vendors, but I am unsure if I should continue targeting long term tasks. I’m waiting on meds to see how it helps.
How long should I stay at an “A-list” agency if I haven’t made anything worthwhile? It’s not for a lack of work ethic but a lack of luck with everything getting killed by client.
Show of hands; who has been laid off because your agency lost a big client? Also, when you interviewed for your next job did you feel comfortable saying that? And do other agencies understand?
I’ve been working for my client for about a year and love my projects and client team and have had strong performance-however my team running the PMO is disorganized, burnt out, and teetering on the verge of a major mishap if the trend continues. I’m looking elsewhere but have a strong relationship with our client leadership contacts…..how would I float the idea of them taking me client-side?
I'm currently looking for a Social Media Director who will independently manage the entire social presence of two Italian liquor brands, carrying out the brand vision with minimal guidance from the client across a variety of platforms.

I’m struggling to transition out of consulting. Is a PMP worth it and would that improve my chances? Trying to just get a normal project management role for stable hours that still pays decent. At this point fine with a minor pay cut just burnt out. TIA

Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
Am I an attractive candidate at all? Or is it silly to think I could jump soon for a comp increase? 1 yoe BAH fed (7 yoe in nonprofit sector before that), currently at 90k. Have some generalist certifications (agile, prosci, working on instructional design). Non-technical, no master’s. Resume is mostly attractive bc of extensive international/cross-cultural experience & DoS experience. Am I still too “meh” with only 1yoe & no tech skills?

Our school uses Foss Kits for Science and I was told when students return, we will need to sanitize all items before and after each use. This doesn’t seem possible in a middle school setting where each period has a 4 minute break and 25 students in each period. What do you do in your classroom to minimize the amount of work needed to clean and sanitize items. I don’t want to short change the students’ hands-on experiences.
Moving to NYC next year, and my SO is based in Seattle. He is very keen to spend more time with me in NYC, even suggesting living there while remote working is still a thing. I’m a little hesitant bc we’ve only been dating for 2-3 months and it would feel like moving in tgt. Also not sure if i should be looking for a studio or 1br for more space but at a much higher price tag that i have to pay for. Any thoughts?
