I don’t think it matters much anymore. Oftentimes we learn that the job is not a good fit months after starting


I don’t think it matters.


I have one job that I was at for 6 months. No one has ever asked me about it in an interview. It can look bad if you have a lot of jobs you were only at for a year or less, but most people understand that sometimes a job is a horrible fit or really toxic place and for your own well being you can't stay.


Doesn't matter. If the place is bad get out

Hi Everyone, I am trying to apply for a Technical Support role at Dropbox. I’m entering all the required fields but there seems to be an issue, when I hit submit after filling the form, it doesn’t submit and throws error ‘Looks like you left this blank! Please fill out this required field’ when all the fields are entered already (I have checked so many times, and filled the form from scratch several times too). Anyone from Dropbox who can put me in touch with HR or suggest what I should do next?

How has PMing bled into your personal life? I feel like I'm turning into one of those freaks who organizes his life via spreadsheet


Curious to know on average how many projects other PMs are managing at one time? I just counted my projects today and I’m currently on 17 and drowning. Is it like this everywhere? 😵‍💫😫


McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Hiiii! I’ve been at my job for a year and a couple of months now & I’ve gotten rather bored because the work is repetitive, not challenging, and hasn’t really allowed me to learn or grow as much as I would’ve liked to. Given how I’m still paying a ton of money for my postgrad in Business Comms (that I haven’t really gotten the chance to use), I’ve been thinking of entering the world of consulting. Any word of advice? PwC McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group KPMG


More often than not, PM owns the tasks of ensuring their team and agency log their time, but I argue that it is not our sole responsibility. Finance and Leadership often stray away from penalizing offenders. Other than including job numbers in subject lines, statuses and meeting invites, how do you encourage your teams to log tine weekly (regularly)?

Hi! My company just experienced some downsizing and Im looking for a new job. If anyone has any contacts for a Creative Project Manager position I would greatly appreciate it!

What is the biggest thing PMs want to build in their teams?


I started a new full-time job 3 months ago. My teammates only escalate small mistakes to my boss; I rarely get positive feedback on the things I go above and beyond on. I have a review coming up this week, and I don’t feel secure. A role that I applied to pre-covid became available. I got a verbal offer last week. Should I leave a full-time gig for a temp-perm one? I’ve killed myself to implement constructive feedback but I’m scared it wouldn’t be enough.


Would there be any PMs interested in speaking with me about their career including: certifications earned, software experience, skills needed to succeed, etc? I'm thinking about making the move from Advertising Account Executive to Project Manager, but don't really know what online resources are fruitful for that position.
