If a company asks you if you're interested in applying (which you are but you don't want to leave your current team hanging with a project mid-development) is it okay to say you're interested... but

Thank you! I'd hate for them to lose interest in me, but I'd also hate to leave a month before my app releases as I am a critical part. Fingers crossed they're still interested.

Not ready to "actually" join few more months? I'd like to wrap up my current project as we are close to release. I mean... maybe even 1 month. But definitely not before then. Do companies appreciate that and see that as a sign that you wouldn't screw them over either? (Able to finish my work and not bail out). I'm attending a networking event and the invite asked if I'm interested in applying, and if so - when. The only options were: Now, 3 months, 6months, 12 months. I put 3 months as 1 month wasn't an option.

My project is requiring a lot of time commitment during early hours and evening and it’s getting hard to pick up LO from day care. I wanted advise frm ppl who have hired help for pick/drop off.

Share your best (worst) “I didn’t know I was on camera” or “I didn’t know I was unmuted” stories here. I’ll go first: started at a new client, and joined their first daily standup Zoom call. Was just getting out of shower and running 2 mins late, so joined from my phone as I was getting dressed. Apparently the Zoom app on iOS (at least on my phone) defaults to camera ON. 13 people on the call. That sucked.

Pregnant and in first trim with severe nausea. Was put on a team that is super understaffed and have hard deadlines like every week as the client is going through diff transactions. Partner says I can log off whenever I need but Sr manage keeps pushing work to my plate and asking why work is not finished. How could I deal with the situation? Should I just tell partner I need to roll off the team?

Have an opportunity to roll of a 6-month engagement soon. PPEDs & SMEs would like me to return (minimum another 6 months). Client work is something I have absolutely no interest in (open SOW so a lot of BAU work). That being said, I don’t have another engagement lined up. I have been networking but my conversations have translated into involvement in pursuits/leads. I’d be walking away from guaranteed utilization on a G360 account and a potential agile promotion in May..gamble or not? thoughts?
