How do you learn what accommodations you personally need?
I don’t know how else to say like I need a project management tool like department wide since Our own projects are lacking effective/efficient project management. work is so disorganized and we are putting bandaids in concrete cracks. They won’t hire more analysts fast enough to shift the workload.
I’m new (started this yr) and its impossible to learn how to do my job/platform and to ACTUALLY do my job within 8 hrs across 3 projects

I’d break this down into what the problems are at a more granular level and what I’d need to solve them.

The way you describe this, at a high level, just sounds like poor management or processes, and not an ADHD issue. By breaking it down, you’ll start to focus more on what relates to ADHD.

thank you! you’re right- getting into the details helps separate what I can and can’t control. I think Im going to start to ask for assigned tasks to be written out instead of only verbally assigned, so I can get more details and think about what questions I have as I do it

Please feel free to share accommodations that have helped you in consulting! I’ve never asked for any (kinda newly diagnosed as of last year) and I’m still understanding it all

Hi IBM sharks 🦈

So I got interviewed for a project by the IBM team. The interviewer told me that its a go ahead from their end, now the client will assess my profile and if they too are fine with it, I will be onboarded?

Is it true that we have client interview as well? If yes then after how many days of interview by IBM team, client interview takes place?

Or its just that if the IBM team is fine with it, we are selected for the project?

Any inputs on this will really help :)
