What’s usually an okay time to arrive/leave on Mon & Thurs? First project is going to require 4 hr flights and 1hr of travel from home and client-site airport. Very limited on flight options overall.

As a general rule I like to arrive by noon, and leave after 2. I like to wake up no earlier than 530am Monday, and get home no later than 8pm Thursday.

The general rule for my projects is that we arrive Monday by 10am and depart Thursday at 3pm. There is always room for exceptions and it’s my job to sell them to the client when needed. I personally fly Sunday afternoons. As I age those 3am wake ups on Monday have started to take a toll on my entire week. It’s healthier and easier for me to get a decent nights sleep on Sunday.

Depends on your project leadership. Whatever the team is doing - you have to try and follow without killing your self

Just make sure your team understands the options available to you so it is clear why you might be arriving later than them

5am Monday flight gets me to office around 10. 2pm Thurs flight gets me home between 5-8 depending on delays. I leave earlier than most the team on Thursdays, but the next latest flight wouldn't have me home until 1am on a good night with minimal delays

At that point Sunday night is looking a much better option.

I became accustomed to flying Sunday nights.

in your case I'd say arrive at noon, leave Thursday at 2PM is legit

I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.).

So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?
