I switched from audit to consulting, and I thought I’d enjoy my job since I’m no longer ticking the box.. doing something that’s more challenging (what people said lol) .. helping the client etc etc but honestly the job seems pretty much the same. I still work on meaningless BS stuff. Is it because I’m not in ‘real’ (strategy) consulting? I do process improvement / CFO advisory. Or are all corporate jobs pretty much the same other than the pay / wlb (which is def. better)

Starting on Monday. Transactional. Super nervous and anxious. I’m considering doing two things: 1) keep an excel spreadsheet that has assignment due dates, client names, assigning partner, etc. and 2) keeping a hand written diary of mistakes that I make on various types of legal agreements, with the intention that I will check that diary for assignments to make sure I don’t repeat mistakes. Thoughts on this? Any tips, advice? Thanks!

Is there a way to restrict character count, or note characters over X number, in a cell? (Ideally, like Twitter where you can see how many over and decide whether to proceed) — or is there an alternate to excel that does so/is meant for word processing (spell/gram check)? Context: client wants a template for copy input/planning that mirrors a defined UI of an internal L&D platform. The platform only shows a certain number of characters before adding “read more” — & the desire is to limit that
