Hi fish!

I am currently a young analyst in Consulting (1/3 of strategy work 2/3 of operations work so far) with some M&A internship. My goal is to eventually move to Corp Dev. I am enjoying my work so far so I don't wanna move if I don't need to, but, should I shift to a more finance role to be well positioned to make the jump or is it doable from Consulting?

Thanks in advance
