All week every week

same as d1

I travel 2 weeks a month so far on my new project. I expected to be traveling every week like my last, so I'm really missing my points!

In my final interview, the MD stressed 50 weeks per year of travel. This fiscal it has been ~42 weeks.

Errweek international

A2 is that average though?

@D2: Depends on the client and project. Had a short project and it was 100% travel and 50% travel on a four month project. Current project is most weeks, minus holidays and a few other exceptions.

M-F every week 😖

@A3: I'm sorry. ☹️
