I graduated with an MIS degree and
have 1 year of work experience. The
role I'm in involves managing/working on client projects, testing any changes made to our
system, and working with customer
service on resolving any escalations. The role isn’t interesting or challenging.
I’ve been thinking about switching to a consulting role but I’m not sure if I qualify or where to begin. Any advice?

Can anyone recommend an app or software for tracking billable hours to make it easier to put together and submit timesheets? I work for a small firm and all of our billing/invoicing is done manually. Every couple of weeks I go through my notes to type up my timesheets and I’m wondering if there’s an app that can record my time as I work and then put that all together categorized by client to submit for invoicing. I don’t need to note how much a particular client pays per hour.

Things Enablers at work say about Narc Bosses/ Coworkers-
1. That’s just how they are
2. They’re having a bad day (bad day 2,371)
3. They don’t know any better (they’re 45)
4. It’s all in your head - they’re like that with everyone - don’t take it so personally!
5. They’re trying. Can’t you try too?
6. They are making a joke (at your expense) Omg take a joke! Lol! (Meanwhile if you try to make a joke they flip out and are praised for their sensitive nature.)
7. They never do that! (Gaslighting)
I just need to vent a little. I’m realizing that our profession is just a way for the client to take out their frustration. Their perception that everything should be smooth and perfect because they’re paying us is unrealistic and abusive. Trying to figure out why I allow this to go on without the perks of travel and expenses.

A man who I hadn’t seen in a while remarked that I looked “healthy.” I got this feeling it wasn’t a compliment? 22ish at the time (F). Is that code for having gained weight? Which I had but not more than 7-10 pounds at most. This was a while ago but it randomly sticks with me.
Even though I've "made it" and make 6 figures now, some blue collar-ish habits still stay. Like having roommates and buying furniture from Craigslist

Would it be dumb to leave before October if I’m very confident about a promotion to manager and the “substantial” raises that leadership has promised us? I can’t help but look longingly at job postings and am genuinely excited about a few that I’ve found, but it seems short sighted to apply now (and likely start in late August or early September) instead of waiting until October to get that manager title and a big raise.
How hard is it to find a job when unemployed as compared to while still with your firm?
Details (if too long, no need)
We all know it’s harder, but haven’t had the experience of applying while unemployed. For those with this experience, all other things equal, as a percent (for example, 200% harder), how much harder would you say it is to find a new job 2 months after being unemployed vs. finding a job while still at the company you will be laid off from in a couple months?
