Move to BCG? Nicest hotels in the area, great dinners, and first class flights for travel over 90 mins. A travel schedule also allows us to protect our Thursday and Friday night...would hate to be staffed on a local case now

What.......

So, how you doing? If you're local to one of our offices, reach out to one of our recruiters. 4 years in, and I'm doing better work with more opportunities than ever, and have spent less than 10 nights in hotel rooms for work, and most of those were in Vegas.

I wish we could switch. I miss the glamor of travel life. I’ll take first class seats, the ritz, and $200 personal dinners every night over being local any day

Ritz and $200 dinners every night? That’s a massive stretch from reality

Going Roatán like I forgot how to travel. • Alarm goes off at 5:15, wake up at 7:45 • Forgot headphones • Forgot charger • Checking bag and it’s 100% self serve (but I don’t work here) • Cant check laptop because of battery and it won’t fit it scuba gear bag… that’s why I have 2 hands (coffee and random laptop) • Negative Covid test, check, but it’s 20 min outside the 72 hour window based on who knows what time they chose and didn’t mention (don’t worry, they’ll just give me another one haha) 😅

I'm a co-founder of a midwest travel tech startup focused on allowing you to plan travel faster, easier, cheaper . . better. We're running a little incentive/hack for booking your first trip through Tempore, this could either be in the form of flights, hotel, or rental car. Plus we have access to proprietary discounts and concierge support. The last 18+months have been extremely challenging as a travel startup, and would truly value the support/opportunity (no fees whatsoever). Link below!
