How do you manage interviews while traveling? I'm trying to limit the # of days I'm away from work. Can I push to have the 1st and 2nd rounds via Skype and then plan to have the final round in person?

Although it's difficult to schedule sometimes. If you're on the normal Monday-Thursday travel schedule. Try and schedule in-person interviews on Fridays.

Take a couple of days off, be flexible

Try to do it on Fridays. Recruiters are aware that employed people have scheduling restrictions. Take a day off only if it is really needed and if you are deeper into the process, like the final interviews.

I have Spanish speaking clients while my team is English speaking. We want to have real-time English subtitles of the translation during meeting and are trying find a meeting technology (like Teams, Webex, etc) with the feature built-in and/or add-on tech that we can use. Do any of you have recommendations or experience with this? Zoom isn’t an option and we have a human translator who summarizes so we miss the detail.

Just got off a zoom HH where anything anyone talked about was something about their SO / something they did, said, etc. I have a great support system without a bf and friends I'm traveling and enjoying my 20s with but man, this made me feel strangely isolated almost as if I'm not normal.

I work in applying advanced analytics, data science, and artificial intelligence to designing supply chains. For a number of reasons, I am looking to move into solo consulting in this field, within the next several months. For those in the know, I'd like to get a feel for the market for consulting in this area, and what rates are typical. I have almost a decade of experience in this specialty + applicable MS degree. Thanks in advance.

Already at MBB. Went to T10 undergrad. Dream exit is health tech. Applied R1 and only got into Kellogg. It sure would be fun to explore and network for 2 years. But not convinced Kellogg is enough of a leg up for my network or career prospects versus current MBB role to be worth the financial/opportunity cost. Anyone else in this boat or have a take on this??!

I’m going through that right now and wondering if it will pass with time as I get more experience in the role. Or, if it doesn’t, what do you do about it? Would it look horrible to eventually take a job somewhere else back at the Senior CW level? I’ve always loved being the maker - focusing on writing and concepting. Having a lot of anxiety that this new position isn’t the right path for me.
