How much does it matter if you exit into an industry you don’t want to eventually work in? I want to work in tech, but I’ve got an offer with an automotive company. Great salary and role, it’s just an industry I’m not that interested in. Will I box myself in? Thanks 🐠

That was my suspicion. I’m just so done with consulting I didn’t want it to be true. I guess the job hunt continues 😞

I found myself to be extremely bored and actively seeking opportunities in the industry I actually liked. I felt no real desire to learn about the industry. It won’t box you in if you don’t stay in it too long.

I won’t be upset if he does because that’s on him, but I feel so insecure about how ridiculously poorly I’m doing in life:(. Just wanted to let it out

Deloitte 🐠 I have 5 years industry experience , 2 years consulting & a Masters in Org Development. Looking at human capital consulting as a C, what salary range can I expect?

I started a new role in BizOps over the summer at a late stage FinTech startup making $150K base ($15K signing bonus) and stock options. I previously worked at a T2 consulting firm and went to a non-HYP Ivy for undergrad. Have 4 YOE (will be 5 at matriculation) I’m debating whether I should pursue an MBA. Long term goal is entrepreneurship / FinTech for developing economies. I don’t think I’d want to go back into consulting and I don’t think PE/VC is very feasible either. Any thoughts?
