How do you pick an industry to exit to? I don’t have much experience, and I’m not a big fan of consulting, but I’m not sure where else I could get a decent paycheck and maintain some optionality to exit to an industry I like. Unfortunately, it’s not possible for me to try projects outside of my designated industry (government) at my firm. Should I switch to another consulting firm to get more exposure to other industries or should I directly exit to industry, and if so, which one?

Was forced out of a firm after more than a decade last year. Started my own law firm. Today I got a new client who called my old firm and fired one of my ex colleagues to come with me and told them they were coming to my firm. The colleague and I were close, but this is business and I don’t feel bad. Although I have been acquiring unhappy clients of my old firm for a while now, this was the first who was on a current retainer with the former firm. Life is much better on my own. :)
