Hi fishes. I am currently working at a market research firm and have around 6 years of experience.
I want to upgrade my career path. Please let me know what to choose next. What courses do I need to take so I can switch to top consulting firms like PWC, Kantar, B&C.

I’m a sponsored MBA student with option to come back to my firm (Tier 2) at Manager/Project Leader level, but I’ve also received full time offer for MBB at post-MBA level (lower TC by >50K plus need to cover 80K USD for MBA). I may want to stay in consulting long-term, but also open to switching to tech at some point. Is there a strong reason to switch to MBB now, or does it make sense to work in my current firm for 2 years and then make lateral move to MBB at a more senior level?

I'm a second year at a V30 firm in an energy regulatory practice. I do some litigation, some regulatory compliance/deal advising, and some purely transactional work (energy projects).

If I want to go in-house in the next few years, should I focus on one of these skill sets or is it better to be more of a generalist? If I should focus on one skill set, which one makes me most marketable?

Most of the companies like SAP, KPMG, Amazon, IBM, Dellotie, ask for experience of 4-5 years for all the Devops roles. I have experience of 2 years in Devops and I have almost all the skills that these companies are asking for due to less experience my applications, are getting rejected. So should I wait for 3 more years in my current Job or should I settle for companies of less brand value than Accenture (my current employer) ? Please help me with your views and suggestions.
