It's easy if the firms need to increase their workforce. Right now they are trying to shed them. So you may want to ask your coach if you can be put on a different job.

Far easier to change clients, no?

Have you talked to your coach about other opportunities?

I don't think you have the right attitude to make it very far in B4. If you transfer you are going to get thrown on another shit client, there are plenty to go around. You need to stick it out or get out all together.

Hi Team.. I am looking for a job opportunity in Hyderabad in PM/ PMO domain. I have 5.5 years of experience in Core Engineering consulting services in PMO & Portfolio Management.

Please advise as I like Hyderabad very much and don't want to shift to Gurgaon.

Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE.

Honestly just looking to learn anything.

And I’m only weeks into the job (was burned out in last job too) and I’m already exhausted from the relentless yet completely unnecessary pace. Any tips on how to navigate this?
