Hello 🐠 - I’m a consultant (5 yoe in consulting) trying to exit into tech roles at midsized tech companies into consulting friendly functions (BizOps, some PMM). Have found the process to be incredibly draining and not getting any traction given my background. I’m not an expert in the industry and having a hard time positioning myself for success. Anyone open to talking about their journey (short call or email) for advice? Would love to learn what more I can do! Thanks.

Covid has been hard. March 2029- December 2020 I drank a lot to cope without realizing it. January- March I didn't realize I was depressed. March I came to terms with increase and ongoing suicidal ideation and needed help. I went into a intensive outpatient program (IOP) which has been super helpful. During the beginning of covid I drank every day and in a great deal. January it was a "dry" month which was hard the first week but overall great. March 2021 realized I'm clinically depressed.
