I’ve been interviewing and I’m running out of excuses for being out of the office randomly and without much notice.

Hey guys- I have an intern buddy who was assigned to me and they’re just down the block from me.

Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories. I started as a C at 29 (yes, unfortunately, I fall into the bucket of exp hire hired at a lower level...), made M at 33. Doing well but also feeling like I’m already too old to aim to be a P. Hoping for some perspectives.

For you that tip Ubers and expense it afterwards, how do you keep track? Always update a spreadsheet afterwards?
Thinking outside the box: need H1B renewal stamping, eligible for Dropbox in my home country. However, going there is still risky in case of a 221g and consulates closed. Can I send my passport to my home country through a friend for Dropbox stamping? Once the stamping is done, I can travel to home country (after they courier my passport back) Is this possible or am I going crazy?
