Hello fishies, need some advice! I’m trying to figure what skills I need to develop outside of my agency to be considered successful in a mid-weight role.
I have almost 2years of experience client side, working on a smallish brand and about 6 months of experience at an agency. My agency does mostly production work and good senior creatives don’t last much.
Advice needed: Can’t focus in lieu of holidays. Haven’t done actual work in like a month (the team is noticing). I’m supposed to move to a new project in Jan, so hoping that will protect me but...
Just started the process for a project manager role at RedHat. Anyone here have any tips or insight on working for them?
Im currently on h1 status due for extension. My current h1 petition includes my client details that I no longer work for - what happens if I go for stamping? I’m thinking I should wait for until after I get the extension approval. This will be my first h1 stamping since I came on f1.
Also, how long can an individual not get stamped w/o raising any red flags? Don’t want to go now unnecessarily and get stuck

Should I follow client company on LinkedIn? Or is that bad because it would potentially identify the client?

Hi! I got my sister who is interning at KPMG Dubai (audit) and the only offer is aed 500 monthly stipend. They are expected to be at the client but no expenses are reimbursed by KPMG.

How are interns expected to bear all expenses with a stipend that barely covers food?KPMG

I recently started a new role and the job is amazing but my boss is not. Expectations and feedback are unclear and she lacks SME to supervise my work. I am 2 months in and am getting nowhere because of constant rework, lack of clarity , and micromanagement by someone without the technical know how. The stress and anxiety of the daily barrage of chaotic and confusing (and often technically wrong) feedback are affecting me. How can I better manage up?
