Document every interaction and meeting to CYA

1. Make incredible looking slides… you’ll get more respect when you share gants and due dates etc. 2. Create as many opportunities for communication as possible… that’s the number one issue IMO … people not talking to each other enough 3. Try to create systems that can be repeatable for each track… ie status report template, back log template, etc…. You also get the benefit of being able to say XYZ track is doing this - your track is lagging behind

Only after 5 weeks I am going to join TCS. In my offer letter it is mentioned I am selected at "TCS Kolkata"; but till now I have not received any information/details/call related to my project yet. As selected in a drive panel so hence no clue about the roles and responsibilities. Infact not receiving any proper response from contact points (I understand there may be some protocol that client/project details will not be revealed before joining). Is there anyway I could get atleast some details?

Advice on pivoting into Sales from Accounting? I know I have the skills and it’s a better fit, personality-wise.

Are there Sales recruiters similar to those for Public Accounting? Do I go for Inside/Outside 1st? What are your recommendations and wisdom?

Would love some advice—I’ve spent the last 2 yrs in sr level role doing policy work I enjoy. early on I discovered I was srsly underpaid & had to fight to fix it. Then leadership changed & things were good, until recently they dangled a promotion only to tell me it wouldn’t come with a raise for at least 6 mons. Then a diff agency asked me to apply for a role that pays a lot more but the work sounds so boring. Do I follow the money or do I keep doing work I like while feeling undervalued?
