Are other firms' programs the same?

How often do you encounter clients you think would be a good fit for consulting? It's been 6+ years for me and I can think of <3 excluding senior leadership.

This one was a contractor at my client working for a job shop type firm, with very specialized knowledge that my team also has

Ok, I'm still curious how often

From the client itself, maybe 1 a year in a good year

But if I meet other consultants at industry events, mutual client sites, or fb...

I don't have a very technical background (or cloud background at all tbh) but was given an offer as a Customer Engineer for google cloud. I'm not sure if this is due to diversity hiring (woman and a minority here), I've heard google cloud is trying to up diversity hiring a lot. I want to take the offer but not sure if I'm setting myself up for failure due to not having a strong tech background. Any advice?

I'm 27..been working at KPMG for 6 years in advisory practice as a generalist (soft tagged to tech, media, telco). Consulting is really not my thing. I really don't know what else to do either. I'm applying for MBA this to explore my options. But I'm worried my past experience would only lead me to a Post-MBA consulting job. How do I exit this industry when I don't know where to go to? PS: would really appreciate some suggestions. Quite desperate and in crisis here. No KPMG jokes please.
