What’s the best way to find a job coming out of consulting. I’m in tech consulting and coming up on 2 years now. I got promoted to senior in July. I’m looking to get out ASAP (looking at product or program manager roles). I’ve been applying on LinkedIn but it feels like all my applications are just going into the void. There has to be a better way. Any advice?

Hi Fishes,
Just curious to know if a PRINCE2 certification is worth doing for a PreSales guy? Any insights would be appreciated.

I need an early exit , before 8 days from my LWD. I have seen some people written like their supervisors changed their lwd but hr is not approving.

Is it like it's a strict 90 days or will they approve early exit if project team is okay.
