At my client site 5days a week (gps) , and home office has little to no consulting presence. Rolling off around August and looking for a supply chain related project (commercial). Advice!

Any tips for commuting in the NYC heat? Our office is now back in-person and every day I walk in with a giant sweat mark from the strap of my bag and down my back from the heat of the subway and walk. Do you take a change of clothes?

Happy Saturday :) Anyone at MBB willing to look through my resume and potentially help me understand what skills im lacking?

Any other staff feeling like they might try to leave audit earlier than they planned to? Love my firm, but WFH is brutal and the people I’ve formed connections with have mostly left or WFH 99% of the time which leads to less social interaction with them.
