Totally understandable, OP. Here’s what has helped me: - Lodging: find a hotel where you feel comfortable. Whatever your priority (food, bed, quiet, etc), make sure the hotel meets that. - Exercise: work out every Monday — doing it on your most tired day, you set the tone for the week. Also, if the hotel gym sucks, find a new spot. - Client Site: don’t stay too late. If you must, make it a policy to have a “long day” followed by a “short day.” - You-Time: find something to look forward to in the client city. Once a week, see a movie, take a class, or find something else that helps you decompress.

Same boat. You probably know this but it helps if you follow a checklist for packing and keep two sets of everything. I’ve also started meditating using the Calm app since January and has really calmed me down whenever there are delays / cancellations / hotel room not to my expectations etc. Take control of what you can is all I can say and understand that there will be curve balls along the way! Good luck and hang in there!!

How do you mentally deal with the stress of this work and these (demanding Wall Street) clients?

I’m close to promotion but wondering if I’m not cut out for this (seeing some health affects) or if all I need is a mindset change.

Down because I got some upsetting (work-related) news yesterday. I was up for promotion and did not get it, basically for my actual job that I have been acting in for over a year. I had perfect reviews and perfect on the technical portion of the interview. Apparently they dinged me on something subjective relating to situational competencies. Colleagues—who I trained and mentored—did receive promotion and we will all be working at the same job, just them at higher level and pay. Contd.

Just heard back from EY that they will not proceed with an offer 😞 Receuiter said I did great in interviews but the market condition change/lack of pipeline was the concern. Recruiter wanted to keep the communication open for next year as they expect things to change by then, but all sounds a bit like a nicely wrapped rejection. Disappointed but I guess I should focus on the next interviews with Deloitte and KPMG!
