Anxious about starting a new job. Moving from consulting to consulting, but haven’t made a move for almost 5 years. Any tips?

I transitioned not long ago and my biggest suggestion is capitalize on the networking opportunities you get. Go to the “university”, engage locally, really try to get to know anyone assigned to help you or as your “coach”. These opportunities persist but the iron gets a bit cooler once you’re settled. I’m really bad at networking, generally, and missed out on some of those opportunities by necessity and am regretting it.

Anyone have some good New Years suggestions for a couple? We’ve done Portland, Montreal, and Mexico in past years. My gf wants to go on a trip and my passport is expires in like January so it has to be domestic. Doesn’t necessarily need to be New England based, but open to suggestions for stuff we might not have thought of. I’d rather just go skiing and she’s not much of a skier so we need a place where we can at least incorporate something else.

Putting in notice soon. When telling your manager and coworkers, do you set an invite to a meeting with the entire team on it? Or do you send separate invites to each?

I feel like the former would make it too obvious since my MD isn't usually part of our meetings, but the latter might leave room for uncomfortable questions.
