Damn, I'm just so tired and so over this client serving role. Think a small coffee shop could use my Big 4 Advisory Manager skills? LOL!

Yes. My small town roaster/coffee shop has a former PwC S3 IS implementation consultant working the register five days a week. He's happy as a clam.

Maybe being the owner who is barely involved and just hangs out at a table for a few hours with his buddies would be okay

You have no idea how awful people can be to people making them food if you think working in a coffee shop would be better. They think they are smarter than you by default because you're working there and the coffee is never hot enough and there is never enough caramel sauce. They're gluten-free so that means they can't drink soy milk and they want a regular bagel scooped and also you are too slow. NO TIP.

Throughout my career, I have worked at both “traditional” and “digital” shops. My current agency would fall under traditional but also offers digital services. Our process, roles and skillsets seem way outdated but I wasn’t sure if it was just my opinion or if this is just how it works. For example, we have no CTO or tech leads. Our digital producers feel more like project managers than actual producers. Account Management is just traditional, no real digital knowledge. Feels layered and dated.

I am moving geographies and so in a bit of dilemma. The hiring manager reached out for a consultant level role, a level down from my current title.

I have limited client facing experience since I went from backend to front end and also opportunity to move to desired geography. Not sure how to tackle this smartly. Any thoughts?

I don’t know who to ask for references. Since law school I worked at a non profit for 2 years. Then clerked. Was at a firm two months before it closed and now at my current firm. I have one from my supervisor at the nonprofit. But I’m not sure where to get my others. I could get my judge but not sure they’d be willing/have good things to say. We didn’t have a good relationship. Is it okay to ask someone else from the nonprofit or maybe my co-clerk? It’ll be six years but someone from internship?
