I currently am a senior in a specialized healthcare consulting function. I received a job offer which is less glamorous as a project manager @ a hospital organization. It could help me support my work life balance as I plan to go back to school.... is this a down grade? Is it worth it? Will it keep me out of other consulting jobs? Open to thoughts.

If the career track is one you’re interested in (which it doesn’t sound like). What do you want to do?

It’ll help me develop tech skills & go back to school. If I can be heads down in school while still having an income I’ll be happy.

Are you worried about what others will think or do you think this will divert you away from your overall career goals? Also, can you tell me a little bit more about your current role? I am interested in doing some healthcare related work.

Current role is implementation/analyst role. I’m worried future consulting firms could think it’s odd I took too lateral of a move.
