Hey guys/gals. Hoping to get some guidance on here. I’m considering making a pivot into industry (Big Pharma specifically) towards the end of next year (right after I’m up for promotion to Manager). Ideally exiting into industry in the marketing function. The problem is I’m not sure what marketing role my background best prepares me for. More on my background below…

Posting as :

You are currently posting as works at

My background is as follows: undergrad in Pharmaceutical Sciences; got JD right after and practiced law for 3 years (FDA Regulatory focus); got an MBA and currently have 3 YOE of M&A strategy consulting experience (i.e., think commercial operations synergies in integrations, commercial due diligence, gtm transformation, etc.). Any guidance/advice on sorts of marketing roles in Pharma to target would be appreciated.

Any one?

Marketing strategy?

I want to be an HR generalist, but I am afraid I may have to take a step back in order to do so. I’ve been in recruiting and the talent management sector of HR for 5+ years. Now, I want to step into a generalist role, but realize I lack some aspects of experience that I maybe could have gotten as an HR coordinator. Do I need to take a step back/laterally move before becoming a generalist? I have my PHR. Thank you!

Didn't end up making the cut in Strategy consulting case interviews. Would really like to do strategy / S&O some day. I love using data to inform decision-making.

Wondering if it would make sense to continue consulting in implementation then try to pivot again in the future or at another level - or drop consulting & try to get a strategy job at a startup or maybe do something else at a larger company and try to pivot internally.

Background is tech + MBA. Any insight appreciated!
