Your ambitions and interests will continue to change for the next few years. Being in Big4 doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be traveling and the meaning of the word consulting will also continue to change for sometime. I’d just be excited and ready to learn as you start off. Good luck!

If you have this level of clarity already, I personally would just find out what I really want to do. Don’t get me wrong, I do really like consulting and the pace, but I absolutely get that it is not for everyone.

Make it two years and then jump, also could try and find an internal role. What don’t you like specifically?

How long have you been in your current role? What are you trying to do instead? Actively seek other roles that align to your interests

What role can you get that you believe is a better match for your skills and interests? How has it changed?

What a great experience to see what a variety of companies have to offer as you go project to project. When you find one you like, reel in a job offer!

What sort of exit opps would be available to someone like me post MBB? Would my skill set/knowledge base be uniquely sought after, or not really? Thank you for your help!

Been with my s/o for 13 years. We have had a lot of ups and downs. She had a really rough upbringing which caused severe anxiety and depression. I tried splitting up but I could sense she was unraveling and we'd always end up back together. Eventually I felt so stuck/got so sick of it that I went to grad school out of state (wasn't the right move i know but I couldn't get through to her that it was taking a toll). Long distance sucked, and her depression turned into suicidal behavior. (Cont).

The 4th country is Hong Kong and request of no criminal conviction can only be made when applying for a work visa there.
