Consulting Exit Opportunities

Hey there, I have two years of experience as an Associate at PwC, worked on projects as a Scrum Master, TOM projects, thought leadership for the AWM industry and digital banking industry. Looking to make a change and specialise. Been looking at internal consulting gigs at banks, other big 4, and tech companies but still unsure of what to pursue next. Any advice ?

I'd wait for a promotion or two before you consider a competing firm. Do you have solid strategy or technical skills? You'll need to be strong in one or the other to go in-house or tech. If you have neither, a certification might help get that foot in the door.
