I could do passion projects outside of work but tbh I don’t know what I’m passionate about anymore because I’ve become such a generalist. I love music and traveling but I’m not into playing instruments and I do have trips planned but they’re not 100% relaxing since I have to come back to this job. Feeling my own pressure on myself to succeed but I think it’s only giving me more anxiety rather than motivating me to do well.

I’m a first year Associate so I am the weakest link (experience wise)on a project. I try to get ahead and read up on the project and client as much as possible. Participate and be proactive with questions. If you are receiving positive feedback but think your work is subpar, then keep doing what your doing. If you aren’t getting feedback despite requests, screw em. Dont take it home bud.

To relax, do something different than what you do during the day. Turn off the devices and go outside for a bit during the week. Exercise is a greater mood uplifted. Weekends do the same thing.

Hello folks,
Need some advice.

I am an Associate Project Manager with 1 yr of experience in Geospatial Industry. I'm looking for a switch and I am currently on my notice period.

I am finding it hard get interview calls as I have observed the experience needed for this role is more.

How should I proceed with such less experience as I'm not willing to continue in current company??
I am not actively applying to IT sector as I come from a non-technical background.

Appreciate your response!
