How do people who exit consulting market themselves as experts in their next role? Specifically, one of my recruiters saw my experience more as a jack of all trades and a master of none, and said the lack of deep experience would limit me. For the record, I am tech consulting, with experience in a lot of cloud integrations. Encouragement would also help.

It’s really, really important that you tailor your resume to the jobs you want. Everyone says that but I think it’s even more important when you have a consulting background. You really should make sure that every project you list has an obvious connection to the role, area of the company, and industry you’re interested in. I’ve moved to industry at this point but the consulting part of my resume has maybe 5 of the 10 - 12 projects I did. I think sometimes I cut even more if I add any stuff like sales work I did.

I don't consider consulting people to be experts in anything. And i spent a decade+ in the field. It's just not close when you compare consultants to the people you find in industry or smaller firms

Need some advice. I am super burnt out due to work, covid, etc. My firm offers a 3month internal rotation that is very popular - you keep full pay while having predictable hours & no client work. I’ve always been interested in it and the timing seems right. My main Partner is NOT supportive and says I should take medical leave instead or drop to part-time. He doesn’t have a project for me to work on but doesn’t want me doing anything else. Should I take the role at a risk to this relationship?
