CMV: The era of traveling consultants is over. Yes, life will go back to normal and travel will be safe again, but not until enough time/experience has passed for consulting firms and clients to realize the weekly on-site travel is unnecessary.

Consulting will remain a popular career starter for exit opps and continued high pay, but not for travel/expense perks.
