You need 2 suits in 2 days?

Also I’m a female and have bought 2 suits, dress shoes, underwear, and a couple of casual outfits. I haven’t even gone to the pharmacy for toiletries or looked for work out clothes yet...

Same thing happened to me. Agree that you should investigate the firm's policy to see how much is covered as it will likely be less than the full contents of your suitcase. Also, brace yourself for a long recovery process. It took me 8 months to get reimbursed through Amex, although eventually they did give me 100% of my expenses. In my case the airline did recover my bag, but after my trip ended so I had to buy everything to get by.

No, I’d back 2-3 and mix and match pieces so it looks like a different suit each day. I also prefer more feminine suits than the typical black pant suit so it’s obvious if I wear the same suit

My experience in that case has always been that they have a limit somewhere around 300-400 eur . I was once in said situation and could expense my chargers, toiletries I didn’t get from the hotel, etc to our project account

Which airline? Most reimburse for 50% of value, plus the rest can be recovered from your corporate amex travel insurance

@OW1 women usually need a suit per day, because they aren’t very standard suits and it’s obvious a woman would be wearing the same one twice.

I'm a woman, I don't bring a different suit for every day of the week. SA1, for a week at the client site, are you telling me you pack 3-4 suits?

I’ve contributed to a RothIRA this year ( I didn’t expect to make more than $144k this year… until today). I assume I have to do something to change this contribution since I’ll be over the income limit.

I completely dislike 30 minutes interviews. In past experiences, interviews that went for an hour or so, I always got the job. 30 minutes don’t give the opportunity for the interviewer to get to know you well. This happened recently as they kept going on and on, only for me to interrupt in the last 3 minutes to ask about compensation and benefits. Do interviewers assume everyone is fighting over to get the job? When do I get to ask questions to see if your company suits me ?
