Any full-time consultants?

  1. Hey all,

    Just got back from a second interview with IBM for a supply-chain consulting position. It sounds like a pretty good job, and the chance to travel and see how different businesses operate is intriguing, but living away from home Monday-Friday has some definite drawbacks. I can't imagine I'd have many friends/dates when I'm only in town twice a week, and don't even work in an office!

    So, if anyone out there has lived this life, I'd love to hear your input. Thanks.
  2. I wonder if that would be covered under travel expenses :)

    Back in the 80's I spent 3 weeks out of 4 on the road in
    mostly airplanes in the fish biz.

    Email me Monday for my take ... put TB/IBM in the subject
    so the spam filter in my brain doesn't delete it.

    it's not all bad ....

    You have to be really organized, and you network a bit,
    but you will meet people, make friends and see places
    you might like to live in. For later.

    IBM, for all its detractors, still has some of the best
    professional training in the world. Stuff you would pay
    mucho for elswhere. It may not be a career, but it can be
    a great stepping stone.

    Look forward to hearing from you ...
