Life of a Management Consultant

Right after college I started working for one of the biggest accounting firms in the US. I have been working as a management consultant for a year and a half now. Part of my job is traveling, and so far I have been to San Jose California, Santa Cruz California, Reno Nevada, Las Vegas Nevada, Tucson Arizona, Chicago Illinois and Honolulu Hawaii. When I first started my career as a management consultant I did not mind being away from my adopted home Los Angeles. However, as time passes I am beginning to dread going out of town for projects; Especially now that I am being deployed at increasing frequency and longer periods. I love the challenges that come with my projects, but how much traveling can I bear?

I always tell my family, girlfriend and friends about how lonely being on the road can be. One can’t be all about business you know; one misses the personal contact. As humans we long for intimacy, and if we ignore this need long enough it will change us to some callous equivalent of our former joyful selves! Ok ok ok, I know I am being over-dramatic here! :) Anyway, I will try my darndest to make the best of my situation. *SUPEHSTAH*


My Hawaii Trip


My Hawaii trip!

Well my project in Hawaii went well. Although it was so stressful because I did not have the luxury of touring the place as I did not even get a single day off during my stay there! It was rather lonely being in Hawaii, not knowing anybody there. I am not complaining though, professionally speaking I learned a whole lot and it is a pleasure learning something new. The project itself was extremely challenging, if you have noticed I am not disclosing any specifics regarding the project; that is not by accident, I am bound to secrecy regarding the specifics of my project! What a bummer, eh? Not that anyone has been to my site before!


This sucks!

I am bummed out! My firm decided to block PEX, and if I want to get it unblocked I need to talk to IT for them to unblock the darn site. According to the company policy, visiting message boards are prohibited! I suppose I will have to just suck it up!
