What do do when you are stuck in a bad project with no scope of skills for applying in other companies + you are a fresh graduate who just joined the project? Any escape options?

Nothing is permanent. You'll eventually land up in some good project. All of us have been through this phase. It's too early for you to think about escape options and stuff.

Do some market research and buy some Udemy courses. Upskill and switch after some time. All the best. 🙂

Thanks. It helped.

If you have no scope of skills, first step is to build one. Learn some new skills, on something like udemy or perhaps a degree. Best of luck.

You might be stuck if you don't have the option of other companies. We all go through some seemingly impossible times. Go through all the tutorials you can, learn what you need to, and push through this.

I'm losing my mind. I desperately want to roll off my project, I hate it, gives me anxiety. But i signed a contract about a year and half ago to buy a new build home & won't be starting the underwriting process until the home is done some time in Sep. My lender/RE Agent said I can change jobs as long as I make the same or more. I can have a one month gap between jobs. As a senior analyst, 3 YOE overall, is it too risky to quit? I can't handle it anymore & i don't think I'll be able to roll off.

I applied to work for my dream company as an EA and the interview process was going well. They loved me but did not think I was a good fit for the role I applied for. They did however think I would be a good fit for another role opening up in a few weeks. I expressed that I was open to the role but I have not heard back since. It has been about a month. Should I give up on my dream company or trust the process? I have reached out twice so far.

Received an offer for a Project Delivery Specialist II in GPS. Are all Project Delivery types tied to PDM? Is it possible to negotiate the track prior to onboarding? I’m on the fence after reading all of the threads suggesting to avoid. However, ideally, I’m really only looking for a year 1/2 engagement before industry or grad. I just want to keep my options open if needed. Any insight is greatly appreciated. TIA!

Hello all, I’m wondering if anyone has tips on creating a resume for director level positions. I have a few questions that I would really appreciate some advice on. 1) How far back should I take my professional experience? Right to the beginning, about 5 - 6 jobs in 20 years, or just some recent ones? 2) Does it help to add skills in there too? 3) Should I mentions any awards I received that are actually from a different industry than what I’m applying to? Thank you in advance.
