Hey, I'm a tech consultant with 1.5years experience. I am trying to do some career planning before the new year and I've narrowed down to 3 potential roles, in no particular order; Business Analyst, Product Manager or Software Developer.
My current role has such varied daily tasks I find it hard to become an expert because of this and this worries me for future career ops.
Are these viable roles for me to move to based on my current role?
What should I do to make a career change plan?

I keep getting surprised each month by our firm financial reports indicating we are relatively on track with our pre-Covid budget, while also watching our overall billable hour numbers for the year continue to go down. So, it is really 2021, when our 2020 backlog AR won’t be rolling in, that I should really be planning to hunker down for?? Seems a bit like the disconnected stock market to economy.
