Business casual with a holiday nod. I have a green velvet sheath dress that I pull out for these kinds of things or a couple of different red sheaths. Or a white wool pencil skirt with white/silver beaded top.

Would you leave before busy season if you get an offer in December before the holiday break or would you negotiate your start date to try to stay through the busy season (6 weeks) due to staff shortages? I feel like I’m fucking my team over but also am so over audit and all the hours/work they’re giving me due to staff shortages.
