Many of my teammates and client assume I am knowledgeable/capable maybe because of the way I look, dress, or speak, but most of the time I don't know wtf I am doing and scrambling to learn as I go

I recently started working as Associate Project Manager in CBRE project management in New York. I am paid $80,000 plus bonus. I think I am paid less, but just wanted to check with the group here on what you all think.
I have 4 years of experience, Masters in civil engineering.
Is there a policy that limits your client travel to something less frequent than weekly, if a client is over a certain distance/hours from your home office?
Have yall ever done projects outside of your service line or industry? I'm wondering if it's beneficial for me to do something like that in the long term. My area is Pharma but I've been presented with another opportunity outside of my service line in Public Sector. It sounds like I would get great skills out of the project, as it involves strategic planning and that is not an area I have experience in.
Got promoted last year in October. Got an offer back in March 2021. My current company retained me stating that they will promote me in October but compensated me with a cash bonus. Things took a wrong turn and I landed up in a shitty project.Zero technical growth.
Got another offer similar to previous one. Location is my hometown. Profile is good.
If I resigned, I will lose the retention bonus & won’t be getting paid for the next 3 months + festive season is starting.

I was curious. When you bring on a new client, which have you noticed are larger relationships on average? Cold Cold or Referral?
Got pulled into a room by my client and got yelled at and blamed for issues that weren’t related to anything I’ve been working on. The worst part is, I think the client knew that none of it (cont)
Is there a market for lawyers to add expertise In crisis management or reputation management? My goal is to counsel clients (businesses or public figures) on how to respond to media inquiries without saying or posting something detrimental to a potential lawsuit while still maintaining communication with their client base. If so, how to break into that industry? Courses? Books? Certifications?

Any advice on how to learn how to do content production? My background is in building apps (product) and I have a feeling I’m going to be put on a commercial or social content project at work..(cont.)
Say if the pay was largely at par, what would you prefer 1) service handful of clients in your industry / region with more of client specific challenges and high level of operational control on outcomes 2) run a large national P&L with more of strategic challenges but limited direct control on outcomes.

I have serious anxiety issues around financial stability and consistent income. My partner is currently on a contract role (good pay, great client) but its about to end in couple months. He says he is confident about a ft offer or he is okay to then start looking for something new in the same company or outside. Being the planner type that I am, I find it very hard to make peace with. That is if I was in similar situation I would have looked for plan B plan C options. When I expressed this, he

I am depressed 24*7 for the past 4 months. I am trying to divert my thoughts but I wanted to understand what you guys are doing.
Is it common in the industry for licensed insurance agents to not get any commissions on a referral in which you personally write the policy? Ex: If a current client refers a prospect to our team, I would not receive commission. Additionally, if I write a policy for friends/family I would get a small incentive but it’s a fraction of the commission producers make.
Management is considering changing this going forward. However, I’m not sure how I should react if they keep things how they are now.
So sad I didn’t get a chance to say bye to my kiddos. Even sadder to know u might not get the chance 😭

chatted with an in-house recruiter yesterday for a v exciting role. she said she was presenting candidates EOD yesterday to the hiring team, would 100% be reco-ing me for the next round, and would be back in touch in the morning. it’s now afternoon - should i be worried/follow up?
I have resigned today via mail, and my manager wants to unallocated me from project without raising my separation. What should I do?
A girl I’ve been dating has mentioned that she’s still friends with her ex and talks about them hanging out regularly. I asked if she still has feelings for her ex and she said no. As someone who’s been cheated on, I can’t help but think it’s a red flag. Am I overthinking this? I know people can be friends with some exes, but I’m not one of them.
Would you change companies for 10-15% pay raise? Assuming everything else is very similar. Personally, I think it is too much of a headache with little rewards.

I’ve been getting my meds the last few months from Cerebral but just the dreaded email that they will no longer be prescribing stimulants starting in October due to regulatory changes. Does anyone know if this is for all telehealth services or just some? It’s been amazing not having to go in person and scrambling to make up my hours at work just to get the same meds I’ve been taking for almost 10 years.

Do you guys post non-business/non-ad related projects to Linkedin? Like if you get an article published, art show, music you've made, etc.
Some of you are so impolite that it’s disgusting. You contact creatives with the whole “we would LOVE to meet you because you’re amazing!!” bullshit. And then, when after the interview you realize we are not what you’re looking for, you don’t even bother to answer when we send you a note to thank you for having arranged the interview and taken the time to talk to us.
Remember: you are dealing with PEOPLE and if you don’t know how to deal with PEOPLE, do something else.
I’m currently interviewing for a role that is somewhat a dream role at my dream agency. But I currently love my agency, have no qualms, and am in the middle of a couple of projects. Is it bad to leave in the middle of projects but is there ever a good time to leave? I don’t want to severe connections and relationships I have with my co-workers.
Job listing: You must have an incredible creative reputation and internationally recognized work.
Can we talk about how awards can largely be a pay-to-play scheme? What if you freelance and the agency/client doesn’t share credit? What if the agency/client doesn’t bother with awards? What if it’s the same circle jerk of milquetoast talent receiving the honors?
Every time I see a job listing requiring international awards, it sounds like another agency looking for the right “culture fit.” 🙄
