Finally built up the courage to take full advantage of the beach by visiting the gf on a weekday. At 8:30pm I got an email saying be back for a project by 8:30am tomorrow. She lives 4 hours away...

Traveling for this project makes me not want to travel home for the holidays. I don't even want to think about all the incompetent vacationers swarming the airport terminals.
My team of 10 is located in 2 countries and 5 cities. Oh and we never physically meet the client either they are in the 6th city. So much For being a collocated agile team. Sigh! #hownottodoagile
From what I can see so far, taking a full time offer from a client you've worked for seems analogous to crossing into heaven.

I am graduating with an MS Cybersecurity this June and have been working as a Project Analyst for 5 years. I am in the process of applying to consulting firms (both big and boutique). I am looking to get a broad experience and travel (whenever that starts up again). Do you have any advice for someone jumping from industry to consulting? Any tips that would get me noticed by hiring managers and/or recruiters? With what you know now, what would you do in my shoes?
