I know this gets asked a lot, but people who went from pharma to consumer agencies, how difficult was it to switch?

For context, I'm a junior who's been job hunting for several months and got my first full-time offer at a pharma agency. It's not ideal, but I need to start working. I feel like it's early enough that I'd be able to pivot later on but I'm wondering how difficult that might be.

Just make sure you’re doing DTC or really cutting edge HCP (think: Area23). If it’s a good pharma shop, especially one that wins awards, you’ll be OK.

So many consumer shops dip their toes in pharma these days. You’ll be needed.

Guys, how do you feel when you see girls coming in and out of relationships?
Most men around me have never been in a relationship, but most girls have been in one. There are only a few dudes who date 4-5 girls while most dudes barely get in a relationship.
How does this affect you? I have seen a lot of men here having negative opinions about women, what do you think is the reason for it?
Do you think your opinions would be different if you had dated before?
