People who stay in Consulting for the long term must have hearts of steel. Between the lay-offs, roll offs, politics, and getting fired/yelled at by the client it’s been a busy year

First day on the job, I was told that part of consulting is to learn how to develop thick skin and roll with the punches. No one told me it was gonna involve monthly breakdowns, bureaucratic BS, and unruly clients/critical managers

Current analyst (1.5 YOE) here with a strong interest in DevOps and Project Management. I feel like I am slowly but surely getting pigeon-holed in L&D work. I don’t like it, but my leaders continue to tell me that all experience is good experience. Should I try to breakout and find a variety of experience this early in my career or should I try to make it to 3 years and re-evaluate then? Have you had a similar experience? What have you done?

Resumé question - I’m wanting to portray myself as someone with the EQ to be able to relate to clients, even in situations that are less than positive. For example, we had a client project that was way off track, expectations were missed, and they were considering terminating the contract. I stepped in and calmed the waters, reset expectations, and turned the project around. Any tips on quantifying this in a results-oriented way on my resumé that MBB wants to see?

What would you do?

I was recently promoted to be a senior and I’m on this project with an acting senior and associates. The acting senior would tell everyone, including me, what to do everyday before I get the chance to. I feel like he is stepping into my boundaries. I feel uncomfortable being told by him what I have to do when I know it myself. I feel like he’s my senior instead lol.

Am I being oversensitive about this as a new senior? Or how would you address this?
