Has anybody ever used any type of mental health reason to roll off of a project?

I did when I was at PwC. Feel free to post here or dm if you have questions.

How were you able to do that?

Yes. Happened this past April for me. I was going through a lot of personal stuff, over committed at work, and not talking to anyone...ended up in a severe mental break. Talk to people. Let your leadership know what’s going on—I’m not saying tell your project partner or anything like that, unless you have that relationship with them, but talk to your mentors, team lead, and your manager. Be well, and DM me if you need to. I’m always free.

How do you dm on this app?

Hello Guys,

I joined
Cognizant recently, the project interview calls which I am getting is not from my base location.
I have the location constraint, should I wait for the right opportunity or raise this concern to ADP team so they can look in to it?

As per ADP policy, one should not have any constraints and take the project as FCFS basis.
