I’ve got a partner that I’m moving away from group/service wise. A large part of the reason I’m still with the org is this person. How can I best approach mentorship or advice going forward?

Ask for it. Mentorship is like dating.. you reach out from time to time, ask to connect, eventually someone throws out the words mentor/mentee.


Or you could just say “nice shoes....”

Good morning!

Still trying to figure out this whole Fishbowl thing, so here goes my first post.

I would love to get into provider credentialing, but all employers I've looked at want at least 3 years of experience. So, I'm looking at Provider Network Coordinator roles, because I'm finding some of those roles don't need AS MUCH experience. I'm a RHIT, and have been working in healthcare for nearly 10 years.

Any input on employers is appreciated!

Question to the audience, what specific questions should I be asking to get a better understanding of the team/make a good first impression?

Wardrobe Advise Needed!

I’m new to the consulting world coming from tech as direct admit PPMD. Female, mostly work from home, although I plan to go into the office 1-2x per week plus coffee/drink networking with colleagues and clients. Tech is casual and I typically wear jeans with a nice top, sometimes blazer, and boots/heels. Based on what I’ve seen in Fishbowl (taking this all with a grain of salt) I may need to step it up. Thoughts? Recommendations?
