A1 I saw it as an opportunity to transfer immediately to a project area of interest rather than wait 1-2 years for an internal transfer to get processed at my old firm. I think overall I’m getting a bit tired of the consulting life. I’ve also been getting staffed on less than ideal engagements (e.g. staff aug) that don’t necessarily line up with what I signed up for here (I know, welcome to consulting, where have you been, etc.).

Also worried about possibly burning bridges with my current group if I leave before the one year mark

Why’d you switch to consulting firms if you want to go to industry already? Is it because the current firm also isn’t meeting expectations?

Hi y’all. So I haven’t technically onboarded for my firm yet, I’m suppose to start in 3 weeks. One of the projects I’m going to be put on requested to have a little interview with people of the team so I had mine today. The “interviewer” didn’t really seem to think I was qualified for this project at the end of the conversation (agree to disagree with him on that). Regardless, am I in trouble for not fitting his criteria/selling myself enough…kinda worried on my manager’s response….

I've freelanced for agencies and in-house marketing teams, but I'm always the outsider looking in. I want to transition to a full-time permanent gig. Interviews seem to go well, 2 agencies went to 3 interviews and nothing. I know I'm totally missing something that agency insiders would understand. Would love advice on navigating uncharted territory. Thank you!

Damn. Was lucky enough to land an interview. The interview went numerous rounds, it was super positive, so then I decided I would be 100% honest about something I wasn’t good at, in hopes of being clear that I was ready to grow. Then I got ghosted, and I think it’s because of the said honesty. Feeling low and stupid for ever admitting a “fault” in an interview instead of just telling them that I’m perfect.
