I was somewhere with an indefinite end date doing mind numbing PMO work. I told my project leadership this wasn’t what I was told when joining the project and I felt stagnant in the role. It took time to find a replacement for me and a replacement project, but eventually I was able to roll off. Leadership understood that I was there too long and unhappy in what I was doing

Good luck, let me know

As a counselor the only thing I recommend is to get something solid lined up and get pulled out. Remain professional. Whining will get you nowhere, and frankly, most people will not want to hear your negative feedback and simply turn it around back at you. Keep it positive, let it go.

Imposter Syndrome - help! I just got the best job offer of my life for a client side position. I’m talking a $30k raise. But it is a LOT more responsibility and I can’t help but feel insane imposter syndrome. They are putting a lot of faith in me for this role and it’s a brand new position internally so there is a lot of pressure to do well. It has me questioning all my qualifications… I recognize there are things I can bring to the table but there is a lot I have to learn in this role.
