I am rolling off a project sooner than expected. Project wants me to go through the amendment but I don’t get the point but the time I know my result it will almost be time to roll off.
Grateful for my support system. I burst into tears during a zoom call with a project leader today. He said the sweetest thing anyone ever said to me in years. A quick catch-up turned into a therapy session.
What’s up all, I’ve been soaking up game from so many of y’all, so thank you. I’m transitioning into tech and really want to see if there’s any people in tech sales (adtech or cloud verticals preferably) that could advise me on best practices/skills to obtain to land roles at top companies? I have a bkgd in solutions engineering & acct mgt in telecom, and project mgt. To add I’ve also built my own e-commerce business. I’m looking for roles in sales engineering or account exec/mgt.@

The US tax code section is complex and full of references to other code sections. WHAT IF, JUST WHAT IF, after clicking through all references, you land at the final code section that just says "go f*ck yourself"? Client - "Hey, we're thinking of doing this one transaction, what is the tax consequence?" Me - "go f*ck yourself"
Came back from mat leave, been aggressively networking to get a client role but no takers for a someone who can’t travel 100%. I’m willing to compromise n travel 50% but nothing! So much for inclusion
I have been assigned 50% staffing but my Project manager expects me to put in 100% time as I am not staffed on any other project. Is it fair for him to expect this? I am upset as this affects my utility rate.
Im a recent grad on a tech implementation project for a small firm. I’m finding it challenging because I’m expected to know how to solution a user problem based on the system that I really don’t know all the ins and outs of. I enjoy the req gathering/PMO activities, but thinking of data mapping and integrations is such a new way of thinking than a typical strategy-based case study. Do strategy ppl find these tech implementation difficult?

I distinctly remember as an Analyst on my first project telling my PPMD and SM that I hated PPT and excel, and thought it was the stupidest thing ever that we had to align everything and storyboard. Thankfully they laughed and didn’t roll me off. Now I’m in industry corporate strategy and teaching my new analysts how to create slides and she said the same thing😬. Funny how things change, and now I realize that those consulting skills are more important as you move up in corporate America

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
