You're way too early in your career to have such a rigid and narrow focus for your career. Keep an open mind and try different things out before you lock into your long term career goal.

CPG gets really boring unless you work for a larger corporate brand, if choose this direction focus on the large CPG brands so that the money will be better. If I could go back I’d do tech, tech startup or a media agency.
