Lol you fucked bro. Just sweat and embrace it. Wash your forearms in ice cold water when you get to the office and it'll stop quickly. That's all.

Stay as close as you possibly can to the client site to avoid commuting. I never have had problems on the subway (aside from delays) but it gets hot and crowded during rush hour. Not usually an issue if you get there by 7 and leave around 7. For commutes, I recommend carrying your nice shoes and wearing sneakers. Everyone does. Also, if you need to wear a jacket, consider leaving it at the office to avoid needing to wear it. On occasion, it's been useful to keep an extra shirt handy in case you sweat through commuting or get caught in a downpour. Always nice to look crisp.

You’re in nyc wear a full suit! Lol!

Definitely try to stay close to the client! Two summers ago I had to take the subway and then walk several blocks and it was brutal. Last summer I stayed about two blocks from my client and it was so much better.

I would often go in early and commute with just a T-shirt, and put on my work shirt upon arrival (and after cooling down)

AC1 - washing forearms in cold water? Never heard of it. But interesting hack if it works

I like the challenging work, but I would have a full team working with the federal group. Thoughts?

Anyone out there have any recommendations on how to handle burnout if you are someone who's life has always been very career driven?

Is your school or district addressing it with any preventative measures social-emotional supports?
