How do you guys find time to apply, and prepare for interviews for exit opportunities? I find it very difficult to switch my mind’s frame of reference from work to prep, and also finding time for interviews/prep is very anxiety inducing (random pings during interviews, faking sickness, general mental health) not to mention interview nerves. TIA for any pointers!

Block off time on your work calendar. 45 minutes each morning for tailoring your resume and submitting to jobs. Block off end of day or around lunchtime for 1 hour interviews. Mentally prepare by moving to a difference space in your home. Put up motivational quotes or a vision board of your ideal jobs and what you would be feeling, doing, and experiencing. It is a slog. I don’t know that anyone feels energized doing it. But it’s how you get through to your future.

Thanks, this is helpful! I guess it’s not pleasant but hopefully end goal makes up for it.

My boss is currently working on pushing through a promotion, with a vision to build a team around me for 2022. I haven't outwardly said that I am unhappy, but I know that I don't envision myself here for much longer. I'm in final rounds of interviews & if it works out would be switching industries. Feeling some guilt around knowing how much they are trying to push for me & impact to clients when I might leave soon. Any advice on how to deal w this? Know I can't say much until offer in hand.

Deloitte: I see there is an HR policy that allows you to go 60-80% whenever you want to/in any role so long as there is a business case. Does this ever happen in consulting? Is it more likely to be approved in certain groups/with certain skills? I’m thinking it might be feasible to stay here if I could could go on a reduced schedule after baby 2. If that’s something I could work towards and prepare for in the year or so prior, I’d like to set myself up well for it! Any insight is appreciated!
