Anyone who switched firms to strategy from technology consulting w/o going back to school care to share your tale?

Commented on another post, but just recently switched from Digital Operations at Capgemini (tech implementation) to Digital Strategy at a Tier 2 (ATK, OW, LEK) this past September! I was also able to move up a position faster than if I stayed, which was nice.

I didn’t go back to school, but I studied Case In Point and Victor Cheng material religiously before my case study interviews. Screen to hire was about a 6 week process.

Just got into a huge fight with SO and wanted some perspectives. He (31M) and I (30F) texted last night while he was hanging out with his friends, and I asked him to text me whenever he gets home as he lives in a bit shadier neighborhood. He said he will as usual, but went MIA. I was so worried I spent all night trying to reach him and his roommates, until it turns out he passed out until this morning. He calls me this morning and says he appreciates me waiting but I should not wait.. (Conti..)


What does “being hardworking” mean in advertising? If it’s not about putting unhealthy amount of hours in at work, then what is it?
