I am a veteran with relatively little business experience and currently navigating through consulting mainly in generalist roles. Realistically, how long do you think someone can perform work as a generalist and, if forced to transition out, what might be some alternative career options?

You can make a career out of it, if you enjoy the Accenture games.

Take control of your narrative and career. Find something you can be excited about. Map your trajectory. Refine yourself as a professional, and learn everything you can from professionals. Seek mentorship and always be open to development.

Been here shy of two years, and I’m looking to jump for a 50% base bump. Happy to talk more.

Do any professionals in the tech field have any thoughts?
