Traveling to client July 4 week. Thoughts?

I don’t travel on my wife’s birthday and our wedding anniversary . Everything else we just find another day to make up


I’m traveling too, it’s not unheard of! I’ll be there mon - wed and will be making the most of my time at the client site!


Most clients work from home or on PTO that week so I haven’t really found it valuable


Not uncommon if you’re working outside of the US, but I have an arrangement where I always observe July 4 on US soil 🇺🇸


Depends how many hours of travel. If it’s coast to coast, absolutely not.


Don’t see an issue really. July 4 is on a Thursday. Fly back on Wednesday afternoon.


We’re closed for repairs that week


Damn. Sorry, chief.


Crickets at the client site unless it’s a go-live


I’ve done this - it’s common for financial erp system go lives. Quite annoying

Join EY

Move to the industry and gain your "independence"

No shot. Working remotely 4th of July week

Hello Sharks!

I’m from fintech industry. Worked in ATM domain for 4Y including 1.5Y in client facing ML project.

Can anyone please help with referrals for the same? If not, please suggest the companies working in this domain so I can reach out by myself.

3 years in and I still get nervous for client meetings even when I know I know my work. I get through most meetings just fine, but my confidence seems stuck in neutral. How do I get over this, especially since the more senior I get the more client meetings I'll have?


I sent the client something for a quick approval and noted that it was just for layout, it hasn't been proofed yet.

Their reply?

I sent analysis to the client yesterday morning. No acknowledgement. (I marked it as urgent by the way)
