Hi everyone, currently at MBB in Europe and have a couple of buyside processes coming up where I will need to step aside for several hours at a time on some days to do interviews (up to 3-4h sometimes). Should I be open to my case manager/mentor about this or better keep it close to my chest and say I will be out for [insert random excuse]? I really want to be open and work collaboratively with my team, but at the same time wondering if that is a big mistake.

Sitting back thinking how ironic it is that I’m literally deep into the interview process with another agency to get away from an account director who makes my life hell. I have to give up working at an awesome agency but I don’t see a way of getting away from them because they wouldn’t switch me to another account. Oh well maybe I’ll boomerang.
