I’ve asked leadership multiple times to roll me off my current project I’ve been on for a year and a half now because I’m not learning anything new. What can I do to get off of this never ending road?

I’m in a similar boat, in the same project for more than 2 years and started looking for external jobs and finally accepted an offer yesterday.

I like how when you are recruited you get told all this crap about “own your own career” and “work on things that interest you” and then you show up at Deloitte and instead you’re like a checked out library book lol

There are not great learning opportunities in gps projects specific to USDC. If you have good network you may try transferring to core or exit the firm for better opportunities and a bump in pay. I chose the latter as the job market is especially hot outside.

Maybe we are on the same project. Your project leader needs to let you go. Only way that happens is if you threaten to leave.

Same situation and also pursuing external opportunities. Life is too short.

Use your network to find a student project and find a replacement to take your place on your current project.

Speak with the leadership and let them know you’re willing to provide training time on top of completing your work. If they come back and say you need to find a replacement for your role - if you know SMs who interviews potential new hires talk to them about getting someone to replace you.

You by chance in Mechanicsburg?

Get another project leadership to pull you.

Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
