6 weeks on the bench (L9), most of which due to a project start date getting delayed. Possibility of this delay spilling past the holidays at this point. How worried should I be?
Accenture bench is deeeeep. Especially strategy.
On the bench for the third week, reached out to demand, my coach, RP and my network etc. Decided to catch up on some workout and laundry today. Shall I feel guilty?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

Doing some dead boring shit. But working with a great senior manager who promises to pull me up if I stick. But counsellor advises to roll off and find something aligned to me. Opinion? I'm jus staff1

Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.

Dear TCSers... I got a call from a TCS er.. last week and he interviewed me saying he received my CV from an external source. He shared his tcs email id, asked me to make minor modifications in the CV and then there will be a client interview. He said he will get back to me. I reached out to him 2 days later and he informed they were evaluating my eligibility with TCS. It has been 4 days since that and I have not heard from them. What does this actually mean?
