I’ve been on the bench with J1 for about 3 months. I was worried that because I couldn’t find another project, I would get laid off so I found J2, which pays more, is very meeting heavy, but I really like. I’ve kept J1 because I’m still on the bench doing absolutely nothing and getting paid. Thinking about looking for a role on a project with J1 that’s not along my career path but will allow for me to do work with no calls so that I can manage both jobs. Does anyone have experience or advice?

That's a good idea, but if there is no pressure from J1, you could stay on the bench. If you stay on the bench any longer will they let you go?

I am currently on bench at J1, but we get paid overtime so I am looking for a project asap. Also, I always prioritize J1 since it is where I am building my career at. If the above wasn't the case, I would sit on the bench as long as possible (since I am making myself available, but no engagements need me). At J2 they were demanding, when I was traveling, but since being remote it has cooled down. J3 the client is low-key, but a hot mess. Scheduling is always difficult so just set expectations.

Hi Fishes,
So, I had joined kpmg a month back but I got a better offer from pwc so want to join PwC, I have already resigned from kpmg and to the hr I said I want to take care of my family and join family business as my reason for leaving.
While filling the PwC Bgv form(by first advantage) they have asked for my Kpmg’s hr details. I am worried whether the hr (if contacted) may mention about my reason as family business, in that case, will my bgv fail with PwC?

The first rule of overemployment is dont talk about overemployment to anyone outside your house. :). Second: always protect the main job. Third: As the main job always has the priority, the Second and third jobs must preferably be contract gigs with not too many meetings everyday. Remember: another day, another dollar.
