Has anyone ever taken a contract Project Manager or Coordinator job?
If so, please answer the following:
1. What was your experience?
2. Did you receive any benefits?
3. Were you working as a W-2 employee or on a 1099 basis as an independent contractor?
4. Did your contract lead into a permanent hire (if that’s what you wanted)?
5. Would you recommend contract roles?
same case with me.

Howdy! I’m 26, and I’ve been doing construction management for a few years now. I’ve had different roles ranging from superintendent, project manager, to estimating. For the past few months, I’ve self-reflected and realized that construction is not my calling... I would really like to pivot into a different industry but I’m not sure how to break into the consulting or analytics world. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Question for the group. I am an experienced individual currently searching to get out of private and into public. I am a CFE and Certified Technology Business Management Executive (CTBME) with an MBA and am scheduled to take AUD of CPA on May 13th. Am I barking up the wrong career tree to try to exchange an extensive and diverse career into what appears to be specialization within public? I really enjoy project work as the monthly grind has worn very, very thin. Opinions?
Thinking about making the move over to the relationship management/client services side of the business. Any advice as to stay in IB (If so, EB or BB?) or better to look at PE/HF/VC?

Traditionally an Integrated Producer is one who manages production across all platforms for a client or clients. Is that not correct? Why do some job postings refer to integrated as if it is a PM? Why do some refer to it as a producer who manages site development and analytics? Can someone explain what exactly agencies are talking about these days when they say “Integrated Producer”?

Law students: good for you for tracking me, an alumna of the same school, down through my firm website! You’re doing exactly what you’re encouraged to do! Unfortunately, I’m barely keeping up with my workload as it is, so at best you’re lost in my inbox and at worst you’ve irritated me!
Also, our recruiting procedures are super strict, so the best I can do is forward your email to the right people. And we don’t hire 3Ls. Get some experience elsewhere, then try for Biglaw again in a few years.

Anybody have side hustles that are completely different from what they do on their job? I’m currently working as a Product Manager building some APIs but really my biggest skill is data analysis and creating work for engineering teams. Not really sure how I could use these skills to build something of my own. The only thing I can think of would be freelancing on the side and doing sql/excel analysis for clients on like Upwork or something.

I have to ask this because I just don’t know. If you look at someone and say man that person is a great leader, what is he/she doing?
