Ask for more work? If you’re actively searching out work and can’t find it, it’s not your fault that you aren’t getting hours. It’s management’s responsibility to keep you busy.

Is anyone currently doing “social media audits” as a live workshop with client? Curious if you have found those successful. My leadership has tasked me to find a way to do this to save hours.

One strange thing about going in-house after a long time in private practice is that without billable hours or revenues received as a measuring stick, I feel like my contributions are too nebulous to be valued. I know it’s just confirming, but its been a couple of years and I still feel like Brooks in Shawshank - I don’t know how things work outside of my prior environment. I’ve been institutionalized!
