Is traveling what kept you in consulting? The excessive travel was one of the worst parts for me. I’m loving this no travel life for now. Sure I miss part of being on the road but not most of it.

^^this. If travel is the impetus for your leaving consulting where will you go to get that right now? The airline business?

Nah, nice to have a break from travel. Posts like this baffle me in general anyway - you're really so short-sighted from a career perspective that you can't wait 6 more months? Sounds like you wouldn't have made it long in consulting anyway if travel is all that's keeping you here

I joined because I like helping clients. I want to head back to industry because I hate spending 10-20 hours extra each week working on multiple RFP responses. I despise the sales work and telling my family that I have an additional 2-4 hours of work each night.

Yea, travel was cool / desired at first, then become a nice benefit with points / status and is now a major downside of consulting as a parent. I’ll stay home as long as they want but I do believe it’ll come back post covid for most of us

For McKinsey (or MBB generally though I applied to McK), do cover letters matter? Or more specifically, are you dinged if you don't have one? I see responses saying they aren't read. But when I applied I didn't even have a blank PDF labeled cover letter attached so idk if I'm missing some checkbox.

Am I overreacting in this scenario? My aunt passed away this week. The entire extended family is vaccinated and coming together this weekend for her memorial gathering & funeral. My older sister flew in from NYC and didn’t tell anyone that she had a fever the past few days. She has not been tested for Covid, and exposed my father who picked her up from the airport. He is making her get a Covid test today. I don’t think she should attend any event & potentially expose older family members. AITA?

What happens in the next 10-20 years when the ones who are older for tech now, become actually old for the workforce. Do we get phased out by young people due to lack of relevancy? Or will we have 50-60 year old SAAS sales people, project managers, etc, still in the space and about to retire?
