I didn't really have a specific industry (auto, healthcare, etc) that I was super interested in, but I knew I loved tech and building "products". From there I figured consulting would help me refine some of my soft skills and high level thinking, but my consulting tenure wouldn't be longer than a couple of years before it would be a hindrance to my desired exit. I aligned myself to relevant projects after that and also focused hard on proving technical prowess. After two years I exited to a startup and don't feel like my career growth or salary growth has really been hindered by leaving consulting when I did (I don't think the sales-focused jobs of partners is for me)

Started a new gig at an agency a few months ago with amazing and helpful people. Genuinely nice. Finally got the title and money I deserve. But... you knew that was coming. The job description doesn't match the actual job. Like, at all. Find myself hating it. Do I get out now? The sooner I do, the sooner they can find someone else. Or do I give it 6-12 months and see if I can make something out of it? If I master the general role, maybe other opps will open up? I think it's a great agency.
