Has anyone got a good examples of a PM resume? My background is in consulting and my resume was project based. Now that I’m a PM, I’m unsure how to structure it. At moment I’ve listed my current job with 4/5 bullets, then my previous consulting job with 4 projects listed beneath with 4 bullets per project. Any thoughts or advice?
I work for a technology consulting firm, have a little over 5 years experience in the financial services industry, largely performing Business Analyst roles. I want to work remotely for the rest of my life, ideally never stepping into a client’s office again. Anyone have advice on how to achieve this? Should I be switching to another industry (financial services seems to have a barrier to entry, which means less competition, and is why I’ve remained there)? Is contracting a better option?

Been practicing a year now. Of 6 attorneys, 4 will be retiring soon, and I was brought in to hopefully take over. I am troubled: first that my partners largely provide me with no guidance. They handed me a client with a large quantity of fairly straightforward casework and have been hands off since. There also hasn’t been any talk of a raise/performance review. How should I ask for guidance/mentor ship? How do I ask for a raise, or should I presume one is coming?
Recommendations on a company/job in consulting? Currently an investigator analyst with Guidehouse for a project that is expected to run through the end of the year. Bachelor’s in Business. Working on CFE and MBA. Prior jobs are in state auditing and criminal investigations. I’m new to consulting but I enjoy it so far and would like to remain remote.
Tough senior client shared really positive feedback 💪🎉 feeling like this week is off to a good start! ☺️
Got an offer to start 8/31. If I put in my 30 days now, what’s the likelihood that I don’t get my PBB next week? For context I’m an SM leading an ongoing integration w/ lean team and supporting a second project as an SMR. Pros: - don’t need to wait until 8/30 to leave - team figures out how to backfill - I can start transitioning internal initiatives before our annual plans are due Cons: - no PBB (I’m expecting 30%). - A week less of pay I’d otherwise take off
Is it possible to do well in this career while you also don't care about the client's problems? I've only ever been told I'm great at the job, I get good ratings, build good relationships with clients and internal people alike. But I'm doing this because the pay is decent and I can do it well. Deep down I don't care even a little about the problems my clients have, and hearing some of their questions/feedback often makes me lose respect for them. Should I do this just because I'm good at it?
Anyone else start making PPT presentations thinking. “This is entirely unnecessary fluff and will never be looked at at again. For some reason we must come up with a detailed plan that will not survive its first day to a client that uses all the agile terminology but will only accept a waterfall plan.”
Looking to switch careers but feel like I have no direction. I hate banking - I literally couldn’t care less about my deals and my teammates are pricks. Don’t think I want to do PE deal team. NEED work life balance, want something client facing / senior exposure. What can I do to figure out what kind of jobs I’ll like? Thinking about IR / fundraising but don’t want to be a glorified admin. Not sure about corp strat either. Miserable at my current job. bad to quit w/o something lined up?
I’ve been seeing some project management roles in industry that I’d like to apply for, but most of my current projects have been risk and controls based. Would it be a stretch/dishonest to tailor my resume to fit those roles? I think I’d be a good fit and have the core skills for the work. I’d like to become a technical project manager eventually.
Anyone could share with me a figure that show in a glance why my client should link KPI and media earned, to pay us? (and ultimately how much pourcentage he should pay us)

Considering pursuing FRM certification. Currently in FS and don’t have a background in business/finance (studied Econ). Would FRM help bridge the subject matter knowledge gap?
Considering leaving for another firm job, one year in. Thoughts? New position would be a better practice area fit and would only work with clients in the industry I want. Currently it’s about 60% of what I’d like. Also, current firm seems to be stagnating with low hours to go around. I’m worried about not making hours, missing my bonus, and low professional development. Comparable on prestige & exit options and would be $5k less. Just worried about burning bridges and leaving “too soon.”
