OP no need to equate consulting with PMO. There are a crap ton of engagements that require deep tech expertise. I highly recommend that you do two things:
1. Start a vigorous regimen of training. Spend money, build up motivation and do virtual f2f training. At this point do not do Use my, you need to stay motivated first.
2. Aim to achieve certification within Q3 2018. Would depend on what your now rusty skilks were though do either Azure or AWS.
3. Start internally networking and doing internal trainings. I'm sure Deloitte is all over RPA, etc.
4. You should be able to staff yourself on a Tech project with this recipe.

1 and 2 was the original engagement, 3 and 4 were extensions😂😂

Best luck! Tech is like learning a two wheeler - you never forget the core logical thinking skills, just need to reapply!

3 years is nothing. I got like 7 times that, and I still have to reinvent myself every six months.

So don't lose hope, you got this!

Hey OP I'm in the same boat as you. I want to get out but I can't because of the skills I have aren't relevant and also Visa issues. But im taking courses online and planning to do a side project so I can build up my resume. Find out what your dream job and work on it each day even if it's just an hour. Don't give up. It might seem frustrating but I truly believe there is light at the end of the tunnel for us. And hey, if Trump can become a president, then anything is possible ;)

1) figure out what makes you happy - technical role? product manager? process? Prj Mgt?
2) chart out a path to get to where you want to be
3) network like crazy, develop meaningful relationships with people that might be able to help you
4) gain any certification necessary
5) help with side gigs (I.e out in extra time over and above your project) to help out other teams to get exposure in those areas

You are just at the beginning of your career. It’s a very very long road ahead my friend. Getting dejected is not going to help you. Good luck!

Of my work as well as the path my career is taking. Anybody else in the same boat? What do I do 😢

How many years of experience you have ?

Feel you OP. I have an MBA but for this reason I took on a really stretch project where I am writing code. Never actually done anything like it before. I would recommend the same to you. Will boost your resume which will go to USCIS every so often.

Are you not guiding SDLC? The way I see it a PM without tech skills is not efficient in running tech projects

OP ... open your self up to the tech industry... much more exciting roles and no worries on LCA etc. you can always come back to Consulting once this ridiculous government has gone. For now you have a great brand on your resume and skills I am sure!

My coding skills have all become rusty. I really want to get out of consulting, but don’t see an out. Changing my project is not really an option right now. I am stuck, only need to get out. But how 😭

I have 3 years of work ex and feeling more useless everyday

Thank you everyone! This really means a lot to me!

Question for consultants in healthcare, what books have you found helpful in your career? I’m starting soon, but I come from a clinical background, and haven’t been exposed to that much beyond that. I have been doing a lot of reading (mainly JAMA/NEJM articles on policy, HBR articles, Christensen and Porters books on innovation etc). I’ve found them immensely helpful (I’m still early on, so I learn a lot with each new book). Outside of news sources, what books have you found helpful?
Thank you!
