Same. And stock the fridge with pelligrino for me.

Had the same room for about 8 or 9 months. I liked to assume that there was nobody else in it over the weekend, either.

How do you request that lol

Well when you've been at a hotel long enough, you usually have a favorite room so I have them add that room number to my profile.

People who work in consulting.. how do you manage to travel to your home country? I’m in a project right now that ends in a month. It’s so hard to get a drop box appointment or a visa interview appointment for stamping and of course cannot travel in the middle of a project. It’s challenging to plan around this. Would love some insights into how y’all plan around visa appointments, projects and utilization.

Had a REALLY great interview the other day and walked out of it thinking positively. The person (would be boss) interviewing me said nothing but great things about my work, strategy and professional ability/managerial style. Found out I didn’t land the job, “I wasn’t the right fit”. I get that happens but I find it irritating that an interviewer can act as if it’s all going swimmingly but in reality in their minds it’s not. Why fake it during interview and pass out compliments you don’t mean?
