Hey fishes, I have joined Cognizant as a business analyst in July 2021. I got allocated to a project, but my billing hasn't been started. I fill training and non-billable in timesheet and has never been exposed to the client yet, but I work with some seniors and assist them. Learning is stagnated, and I feel that how is it possible that a guy from 6 months is allocated to a project but neither getting work nor billable? Is it normal in Cognizant? Please help me to understand.

Has anyone here used the "Read Scripture" app? It goes through the entire Bible and includes accompanying summary videos from "The Bible Project" (whose videos can also be found on YouTube). I love how it groups portions of Scripture and the videos are helpful for making meaningful connections with the text. I love these for myself, but they're super kid-friendly, too. Excellent support for your daily study. Enjoy!
