If I am switching companies to work with the same agency that issued my CAC at the same clearance level, do I need to turn it in?

Definitely need to turn it in and have it reissued. Expiration dates and other details are tied to the underlying contract.


Talk to sso/agency who issued you the CAC.


My assumption is you’ll at least have to file paperwork to move it to a new contract.


The paperwork for your cac is tied to the specific contract. Different contractor, different cac.


You should be able to keep it but you will need to have it transferred

I am only 4 months into working at my current firm. I already know it isn’t a good long-term fit because it is tech consulting. As a recent Finance graduate who interned in Corporate Treasury at a bank, I want to work for a firm with a stronger focus on management, strategy, financial services, or m&a consulting. Looking for an entry level analyst/associate role. If you work at a firm with a strong presence in any of these areas and know about an role that can be a good fit, please let me know!

could you imagine pitching something like this to clients now

Does anyone feel they’re adding any sort of value while going to the office? I personally don’t. In my team there’s legit zero level interaction with each other, no informative talks, no growths conversation and few are so absurd that each day they just find ways to impress their snrs. man, come on😅

Leadership asks us to come 2-3 days in a week and if I have to work in the same way which I used to do from home then why don’t we keep doing WFH as long as your job is not suffering.
