How do you find the time to apply/interview? I’m working a burnout style project and desperately trying to find a new job but have no free time nor energy to prep 😭

Word of advice, applying is a waste of time. Fully complete your LinkedIn profile with right keywords and set recruiting to ON. Then let the interview requests come in.

Hide on an easy project and give no fs about taking days off. You’re done.

You put your energy into what you decide is important to you. Once you make up your mind, you’ll know what to do. Good luck

I tried to but was forced onto this project and now I’m getting to the interview portion of the process so I’m just finding it hard to find the time and energy to effectively prep

Honestly you sound like a pushover, which probably just compounds itself on projects like that. You need to look out for yourself and make the time.

Ask for time of and say it's for personal reasons, which isn't a lie. Try to group interviews together, most companies will work with you. Good luck kid.

Allocate a few specific hours per week to it, and just stick to those. Even a few hours will give you a better idea of what's out there and how it compares

I got 7 interviews deep for a role in-house at a company that I'd really like to work for. They said they'd keep me in mind for future openings in the department. It's been 4 months and I haven't heard about any opening roles. They do have a role that is tangentially related to my skill-set (would be a stretch for me, but maybe in a good way?), but I'm concerned that shooting for this and missing might reflect badly for an opening that would be more in my wheelhouse. Thoughts?

Hello 🐠, I have been on a project that I do not like, has absolutely obliterated my work life balance, and put me under a lot of stress. Not to say this doesn’t happen a lot in our job, but I have an opportunity to go back to an old client that I loved. My current project leadership knows the date I’m set to roll off, but have been hinting they won’t let me leave because I’m good at my job. I am so desperate to leave and have been advised by multiple colleagues to do so. What do I do??

I'm struggling to establish boundaries on my project. I get new work assigned at 6pm most days and I'm told they need done by the next day. I start at 7am everyday. Anyone have advice on what I can say to leadership? I seriously can't be working 7am to 11pm every day, my personal life/family is really taking a huge hit. I don't mind the occasional long day, but consistent 14-15 hour days aren't gonna fly anymore.

I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.). I work with reps at these places as part of my job, but technically their loyalty is to my clients (the ones spending $ on their platform), not to me, working at the client’s creative agency. So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?
