All of them work. I would encourage you to try to figure out what industry you would see yourself working in long term and try to get experience in that one. If you like it there will be lots of opportunities for you. My one word of caution on that is make sure the industry you like is where you want to be geographically. For example if you are passionate about entertainment perhaps Detroit is not the best

Do you think it’s okay in job interviews to say when they ask as part of “why do you want to leave consulting” that I want better work-life balance (in terms of not working wknds/overtime and travel) and I believe this role/company would offer that based on my conversations with others in addition to my skills being a fit for the role or does that make me sound lazy/too honest to the interviewer? Appreciate any insights!
