Hey Jessika - thx for your time. What would you say is the most useful skill or skill set you developed at Deloitte that has helped you in your current positions?

Two answers to this: 1) Manage your career as though it’s a company: This means manage your branding, skills, compensation, and network as though you are CEO of {First Name} {Last Name} Inc. If your current customer (which is your employer by the way, who is acting as a reseller of your services to their customers) is not compensating or marketing you sufficiently, then get competitive bids from other employers and pick the best one according to the factors that matter most to you. 2) Project Management - I will assume all of us are smart and that great ideas and issues can come from any team or customer. The differentiator is how you manage the ideas and issues and set expectations and execute. This makes or breaks most startups in my opinion, not funding.

27 Y/O C at Deloitte with 4 YOE in typical “S&O” consulting. Recently realized that I don’t really want to work very hard anymore and my ultimate goal is to find an easy 9-5 job with ~200K in comp. Realistically, to what level would I have to stay at D to start finding these roles? (If they exist)

I’m the guy that got laid off the day I came back from vacation. A month later, I just got a job offer at a way better agency. Sometimes it works out, folks. Stay hopeful.

Developed a propriety Python package for my company. The result has been extremely beneficial but working on it has fallen outside of my day to day. How can I approach my manager to see if I can be contracted to further develop it after hours? I don’t get overtime FYI

This is my first agency in the US and I have noticed that account is excluded from a lot of the production process - i.e. we see the selections during client reviews (talent, locations, wardrobe). Is this common practice in the US or is it just the agency I work at. While working abroad account team was very involved and part of the decision making even playing hybrid project/producer role so am really disappointed with the current style.

Months have gone by since I got laid off. Unemployed. Getting rejected from every job that I apply to. No interviews. I hope that I will have my first interview soon and find a job soon.
