Which I’ve all but accepted years ago. But I do feel like I could rock it with an internal team— is there a job board site (besides LI, Glassdoor, etc) that scouts for internal agency types?

A lot of account people go client side before creatives do. Start reaching out to account folk you used to know for contact information of the internal recruiter folk. Treat it like any agency and just send your book out with a note about your desire to work with them.

I've never seen a platform specifically looking for client side exp. I say steer your own ship. Make a personal project you care something about and use that as your main portfolio piece.

Or one better, hire me and my gang of freelancers who do moonshot creative and we'll get you a win on the board.

Wait. Did you just ask for work from the guy looking for work? You're either a legend or a dbag

New to consulting and the big 4 - have been extended on the same project since joining. The project does not align to the skills or experience I was hired for and has been extremely challenging due to the lack of project organization and proper staffing. I received ‘progressing towards level’ on my last engagement review. How do I get off this project that’s clearly not a fit before it negatively impacts my overall career at the firm?
