Go out for a drink with your team after work. See if there are any sports teams or book clubs in your office that you can join. Ask someone you know who seems involved in the office if there’s any initiatives they think you’d be a good fit for

Do you know of any young professional groups in your area? (Young alumni, ACG, Junior League, museum/symphony support groups, some humane societies even have them) I got on a board for a cultural society and it’s introduced me to some incredible people, and has helped my career significantly as well. Can you participate in recruiting/volunteerism committees/does your office have a Toastmaster’s chapter?

I also agree with the firm sports team idea. At a prior firm, we had a volleyball team that was fun. I have since moved to another firm and remain personal friends with a teammate. We prob wouldn't have become friends otherwise

Manager gives me hard to solve, complex problems like getting a multi stakeholder project organized. This is not my primary job but the chaos was making progress impossible. I create the solution diagrams, drew up project plan, drove discussions to arrive at tech solutions (the team was in analysis paralysis mode) to land a solution with a hard deadline. When the structures are in place, mgr takes it away from me saying this is not my day job - twice, leaving me angry & confused. Thoughts?

Question: I currently work as an inside sales account manager selling a wide portfolio of IT products.
