Consulting Exit Opportunities

I quit coding five years ago to become a technical business analyst (which I regret now). I’m good at SQL, analytical and a PMP. What are my exit options if I don’t want to travel in Big4?

Why regret?

Regret is just that I can’t try roles like a TPM in Amazon.

Steve Jobs couldn't code and built Apple. Just apply for TPM at Amazon and see how far you get. I doubt you would be actually hands on coding in that role.

All the TPM roles they have require hands on coding it looks like. This is one of the things that make me regret.

With your skill set you will end up in Similar Roles anyway, I would say complement your SQL skill with some Reporting Platform/ BI tool

For those at MBB who were promoted to associate, would you consider an MBA? Coming from a non target school background, I always thought I would want one to experience the environment, network, etc. No clue what I want to do next, but not a lifer consultant. As many, having a tough time rationalizing the costs. Any thoughts/advice appreciated

@Guidehouse hiring managers - I have a few friends at the firm who keep referring me to roles I have ~90%+ alignment to, but nothing seems to even make it past screening. Do I need to just start finding practice area Directors on LinkedIn and aggressively networking directly to get in? What do? How job? Context: DC-based federal management consultant, masters degree, 5 YoE in operations transformation / digital strategy, bonus: diversity hire.

Had my start date pushed back to 2021. I’m now considering a masters degree. Any advice if it would be helpful for consulting? And if so, would one degree be more helpful? Finance? Business Analytics? Accounting? Supply Chain? Completely open on what part of consulting I want to end up in. Would I be better off spending the next 6-9 months doing certifications (Tableau, AWS, Salesforce, Six Sigma, etc.) or learning new skills like python or SQL? Want to make good use of this free time.
