HOW do I stop caring so much about this job? I’ve been handed a non-billable project to manage and complete on an absolutely impossible timeline. I can’t stop thinking about how disappointed everyone will be when I can’t deliver and satisfy their ridiculous expectations. Maybe I’m having a bad day, but this is the closest I’ve been to quitting on the spot.
Do any fish out there have excoriation disorder (chronic skin-picking)? I acquired this really bad habit while WFH and am starting to fear that I will not be able to kick it before going back on-site. My finger tips are always bleeding to some degree or missing skin lol. Might freak the client out. Would appreciate advice if anyone has kicked this habit.
Had a client asking about blooom.com. I have read some about the company but would appreciate feedback...does a program like this help keep 401k balanced which is outside my advice or promote the DIY investor?
Received negative feedback from my manager for the first time, I’ve been working for a few months now and this is the first time it’s happened; over arching theme was quality of work and communications etc. feel really shitty about it and I’m not sure how to deal - any fellow female fishies have words of advice or anecdotal insights, did you manage to turn it around? I really want to do a good job and take this very seriously - def want to leave the project on good terms with the manager

My project for the past 5 months has been unbearable, and for various reasons I’m at my lowest point ever mentally. Everyday is a struggle; I’ve been hanging on by a thread to make it to the Friday end date, feeling obligated to fulfill my commitment to my team. However, the client has unexpectedly just extended us to mid-September, and has increased the pressure. I’m shattered and don’t think I can do it. I’d love your advice....especially on how to bow out without completely burning bridges.
It’s my promotion year and currently on a toxic project in which I am pretty sure my manager is not going to rate me well. However, my previous project/managers gave me positive feedback.

Would you choose an investment job at a private, partner-owned long only fund where you’re guaranteed to never lose your job& can be a multimillionaire; or at a very top L/S HF where the bottom performers are fired each year, but you could make multimillions in a good year? Another related q, would you forego the offer at the first place to potentially get the offer at the second place, knowing it’s very competitive? Assume you’re target background, at another top fund, good work ethics

Prior to grad school, I worked 1 year in sales, 2 years in WM, and have a bachelors in economics. TY

Today I had a 4th round interview and gave a 10 min presentation for a position I really want. I honestly love everything about this position and is my dream job. I thought it went really well & she seemed very positive. She said she would follow up with the ceo (who I already met with) and let me know about next steps. I was originally told there would be 5 rounds and with every other round I’ve known next steps before I left the interview. This time I had to wait. Is this a good or a bad sign?
