This weekend I accidentally sent an email to OC that was supposed to go to the client. I didn’t have the clients email and only had the OCs email, but I still should have double checked before sending. It ended up not being a huge deal bc it was a mostly agreed upon settlement agreement and my senior associate and partner walked me through a follow up email to OC. They were pretty cool about it, but I can’t stop cringing. How do I try to move forward and not feel totally idiotic about this??

I’m from Tech consulting. For the current week I didn’t get any project allocation and when I reported to the manager they said work with your leads and get some tasks.

I feel I'm a minority in corporate culture. I came from public school up to Uni years where only few of my peers reached managerial level or even good positions. I reached out to a high schoolmate and saw she got the lowest rank in the company despite 10+ year experience. I have hard time connecting with peers who have a more upscale background. I also feel an imposter since I dont have the stereotype background of a manager --- rich, smart, cool etc. How do I deal with these insecurities?
Saying no to extra work, taking planned vacations,
maintaining a good work life balance, leaving the office on
time, taking time off if you're not well...
..does not mean you are not a hard worker.
It just means you have a life beyond work as well. And that is
It took me a while to realize this.
Do not make the same mistake.
Anyone from IQVIA? I just wanted to check something. I gave 2 rounds of interview and got selected. The HR asked for the documents for further process, I submitted them in the second last week of May. I still don't have any update on it. I called them thrice, Then I dropped an email to HR asking for an update, and the worst part is the HR neither replied to my email and when I tried calling yesterday, the HR deducted call. 🤷♂️ What should I do? They didn't release my offer letter too! 💁♂️
