I'm pretty confident I can land a new client on my own - how can I guarantee that I get myself staffed on this potential client?

BAH1, would love to be on it through Deloitte lol

As long as it's not (or can be perceived as) a conflict of interest, present a potential client team and put your name/resume in it?

Throughout my career, I have worked at both “traditional” and “digital” shops. My current agency would fall under traditional but also offers digital services. Our process, roles and skillsets seem way outdated but I wasn’t sure if it was just my opinion or if this is just how it works. For example, we have no CTO or tech leads. Our digital producers feel more like project managers than actual producers. Account Management is just traditional, no real digital knowledge. Feels layered and dated.

I have been searching for job from quite a long time and all I have seeing HR/Panels asking for 1. Number of implementation projects done. 2. Work experience on S4 Hana. And if I don't have atleast any one of these, I will not be considered. Is it really that important ? Being joined as a fresher - Is it really something that I can decide whether to be in support or implementation project ? Is upgrading of ECC to S4 Hana in my hands ? And the difference is really that vast ?

I am writing this here because I hope that maybe a woman can understand where I am coming from and what I should do.

My CC tells me because he didn’t see any client input feedback in the PA tool so he didn’t enter anything for promotion. My director tells me he thought I started with Accenture January 2021

For $10 or less per month per user. Are they looking for a unicorn? Is there a fix out there?
