Trying to chart my next move and not sure what direction to go. All I know is I’m tired of being always “on” in a client-facing environment. Any podcasts, books, etc I can read for insight into more internal roles like biz ops, corporate dev/strategy, other?? 4 YOE total all in consulting. Currently a SC. Clients/work have been commercial healthcare implementation & public health strategy, risk, process imp etc.

I feel the same way! I’m a SC with 4 YOE as well. My current plan is to make a lateral exit to a retail industry position in the Data Analytics/Business Intelligence space. I like the work that I currently do. What I don’t enjoy is being an actor in what I call consulting client facing theatre 🎭

That’s a solid idea! Also looking for a lateral move, likely to industry. I’m not too tech savvy other than some minor Power BI/Tableau experience here & there

I like my blues and grays, but if I wear those exclusively do I come off as less serious? Any and all view points are welcome, truly just testing the water. Ty!

During the difficult time, be mindful while going out for protest. Being an immigrant, it’s a high risk for your visa renewal. There is ongoing police activity and probability of getting your name in police record, which will impact your visa renewal. Be careful and stay safe and don’t do anything which is unlawful in a foreign country (not that you do unlawful in your home country).

Please help. Husband was in Canada (and still is) at the time his H1B was approved, so he received I797B instead of the usual I797A approval. Since I797B comes without I-94 attached at the bottom, his H1B status becomes valid only after he gets his visa stamped from home country and enters the US on H1B. Due to COVID, we don’t intend to make a trip to India anytime soon. Will his employer be able to start the PERM/I-140 process without him having H1B status and while he’s still working in Canada?
