We do but it’s meh. Mixed success. If you see a job that you’re a good fit for but don’t have a referral, just go for it vs waiting to network and get one

Anyone else feel somewhat lost on what interests them long term in their career or if you’re even in the right realm of consulting? Any advice on how I can reflect and figure this out? Context - I applied for any open business analyst position in my city after graduating and ended up in healthcare consulting. I don’t love or hate it. I get the work done and I learn a lot about the healthcare industry but I’m not the most passionate about the work/industry either.
