26 yrs old, been in consulting since finishing undergrad. Worried that I haven't narrowed my focus or found a niche to be specifically great at. Every project has been completely different... And I am constantly reading books to get smart on every other topic. My guess is this is all too common in consulting.
I am curious if this is feasible for a longterm career in consulting, especially if I am trying to continue climbing?

So a recruiter reached out to me for a role and wants to set up an interview in the next couple of weeks. Separately a manager from the same company who I previously knew/worked with from another company reached out and wanted to just talk and connect about the role before my interview. Since we chatted I haven’t heard anything from the recruiter about a scheduled interview. Thoughts?
