Had meeting with client. Revisions were placed for the copy. One of my writers didnt understand that we had to deliver it within minutes and kinda went MIA for that hour (coffee break?). I didnt bother, so I revised their copy and sent it. Yay or nay?

Yay for sure, just tell your writer what you told us. Nothing personal, just had to get it out the door.

I dont understand what you mean by “one of YOUR writers” if youre just a senior writer. But if a client is just dictating changes and expects them “within minutes,” I cant imagine anything thats any good or that people care about is at stake, so sure I guess.

Hopefully it doesnt happen like this if its anything that anyone likes.

They brushed it off and played it like they didn’t mind. I think it’s mostly because they also know they missed the deliverable and it wasn’t like I did it on purpose.

Yeet complete.

Client was being stupid but it sounds like a win.

Manager seems to be leaving me out of client meetings. Example: in team chat he says I’ll be adding you to X client call. 10m before the call I direct message to ask for cal invite and he says it’s not relevant to me. We just had a TM now and he’s asked me to support someone else working on the EXACT outcome of that call. So now I can’t complete the task well. And then I messaged asking if it was a relevant call and he said yes somewhat. Wth?! What do I do?

I am a Data Scientist but I am doing Tableau work right now since the Tableau Developer left. They are working on getting a new person. However, I have to work on dashboards for now. My current project's dashboards are more complicated than what I worked on before. Do you think it is worth it to sit for the Tableau Certified Associate exam? Or at least study for it. I have some knowledge gaps even though I already have the Desktop Specialist certificate.

Hi IBM sharks 🦈

So I got interviewed for a project by the IBM team. The interviewer told me that its a go ahead from their end, now the client will assess my profile and if they too are fine with it, I will be onboarded?

Is it true that we have client interview as well? If yes then after how many days of interview by IBM team, client interview takes place?

Or its just that if the IBM team is fine with it, we are selected for the project?

Any inputs on this will really help :)
