Consultants with a healthcare/pharma industry focus, any issues with drug testing? I occasionally smoke pot and want to see if I should stop completely. It’s legal in my state at least.

Client based - I’d recommend stopping. Risk outweighs the reward.

Totally fair. I’m looking to get an idea of how often it happens though.

I work in pharma and have never been tested. My last client had a testing clause in their contract but they never actually tested us. Also, client smoked a lot of weed himself so... ✌🏼

I’ve been tested at only 2 clients in 10+ years of consulting. One in healthcare and one in CPG.
Employers did not test, but clients might. If you find one that does, stop for a month

The last 2 times I’ve been drug tested for a client project, I had basically no “prep” time. Both times I had to get tested within a week of receiving the news. Just something to consider

It happened at almost 50% of my Healthcare clients..

Work full time but have a passion to break into financial services <on the side for now> to gain exposure, mentorship and skills. Not sure how to do that.

Not for me as my priority right now is mentorship and learning. Currently life licensed and studying for SIE. Any recommendations?

Do you have any tips for how to get started or types of jobs to look for?

I’m 8YOE, non-Eng, and I really want a brief sabbatical (3-4 months) from work. I’m thoroughly burned out and find I don’t know what I want to do anymore. Nothing seems appealing - no other companies out there seem interesting, and at the end of the day, the pay is capped and they’re ‘just jobs’. More than once this year, I’ve thought about quitting and becoming an entrepreneur, but then I worry about my employability after, should things fail.

Any advice?
