Consulting Exit Opportunities

Currently, nothing exciting about my job at Big 4 so, would like to give myself 4-6 months of prep time for a shot at FAANG+M, any suggestions on what key skills I should focus on and tips for interview prep? Open to learn any new skill (hard or soft) that can improve my chance. All suggestions that help me plan and execute this journey are welcome.

I’m on my 2nd day of a new job and it’s nothing like what I was expecting or what the hiring manager said. On top of it, the clients I’m working with has these crazy, outdated brand guidelines that the team has to go by and the creative I’ve seen is just not that great (assuming it’s due to the clients branding). I just don’t know what to do, I feel like this isn’t the place for me but I haven’t even given it a full week yet. Has anyone experienced feelings like this before? What did you do?
