Trouble networking virtually; I started recently, 3 months ago. I am not sure how projects/internal moves work but I was wondering if anyone has advice on networking virtually? I am finding it tricky because I don't know anyone apart from my team & I can't view Talent Marketplace because I am on a billable project, not sure how long it will go. I enjoy my work and not looking to move just yet, I wanted to see what else is out there and looking for opportunities to network with more people.
Been performing like a high performer on my client up to this point and all the sudden I find myself looking up a therapist and being almost useless to my team (maybe useless is harsh, but I can’t will myself to get basic stuff done at this point).

Don’t know how to explain it yet, but I wanted to come here and vent. Anyone else experience this?

Any tips for non-MBA or business background folk in preparing for interviews? I have upcoming 1st round mcK interviews and trying to tow the line of bringing my non-business-founded strategy ideas into the cases (i work in International gvt) or stick to talking about business concepts only? My case assessment was extremely fast so my sense is I wont get the chance to do both but im also imagining that part of their interest in me is for my non-business-founded strategy experience
