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.

First day at Accenture coming up. Should I send a Teams ping out to the MD that interviewed me just to say hi and thank you? I’m an L9 consultant and really want to build a good network. Never had to do it at my old job, and I’m a bit of an introvert. Worried I’ll be a nuisance by reaching out to MDs just to say hi?

Although I have been acquiring unhappy clients of my old firm for a while now, this was the first who was on a current retainer with the former firm. Life is much better on my own. :)
