I was working at digital marketing agencies for four years and I recently went to the client side. I’m two months into my new job and I’ve learned so much about what a stable job is like. My hours are 9-5, no more no less: I don’t have calls filling up every open space on my calendar. No more immediate client requests or weekly reports where I get dumped on regardless of performance. No panicking bosses holding you at the office against your will. That being said, I’m stunting my career.

Have yall ever done projects outside of your service line or industry? I'm wondering if it's beneficial for me to do something like that in the long term. My area is Pharma but I've been presented with another opportunity outside of my service line in Public Sector. It sounds like I would get great skills out of the project, as it involves strategic planning and that is not an area I have experience in.
