Hi I’m a pharmacy student graduating in May trying to get a remote position with Accenture related to consulting/project management. Any referrals or advice would be appreciated!
I am feeling pretty miserable on my current project and it sometimes feels like there’s no end in sight. Team is great, client isn’t too bad but I always have a huge work load and I’m constantly stressed by tight deadlines. Don’t necessarily want to roll off because I really like my team, but am also not sure at what point to put my mental health before my career goals. Any advice would be appreciated.

I've become really jaded about consulting. I find all so often you need to tell the client what they want to hear to keep their business and I feel like so much of the what I recommend doesn't actually get implemented. I'm looking to make a career switch so I can both create and execute on my strategies. A product management path seems very promising for this. Does anyone who switched from consulting to product management have any recommendations of h helpful PM books, courses, or programs?
If a company asks you if you're interested in applying (which you are but you don't want to leave your current team hanging with a project mid-development) is it okay to say you're interested... but

This is an honest question. I may be naive/over-simplifying. But if you’ve worked your way up the big agency ladder - have the titles, awards, big client resume, would it be lucrative to start your own small agency in a small market?

Does anyone else absolutely hate talking to recruiters to turn down roles? I had two offers come in, had to turn one down. Spent 30 minutes with recruiter saying no thank you, then he put 30 minutes on my calendar with the hiring manager. Then a couple of people that I interviewed with texted and emailed me to see if I could talk. I’m trying to my gracious and thankful, but saying no just gives me so much anxiety because I’m a true conflict avoider

Suffering from crippling work related anxiety lately. Have always found this job stressful at times but with wfh the anxiety is constant and paralyzing and unbearable. I have regular panic attacks, question everything I do, feel like I’m never doing a good enough job and am really down on myself. Part of this I’m sure is that I live by myself and am alone with my thoughts all day, part is that I’m new to the manager role. Any coping strategies??
