I really want to leave, but I don’t know what I could do outside of consulting. Any tips on how to figure out what positions could be right for me? Not even sure what my interests are anymore tbh, but I feel like I need smth very different than what Im doing now. How did you guys figure out what you really wanna do?

It’s easier for us since we do pharma day in and out. We work w/ Pharma so much that we are almost an extension of their teams (directors to VPs). So this allows us to experience what we can potentially do if we were to switch. However on the flip side we also get to experience inefficiencies and stupidity that makes us re-think if we should ever make that move 😀

Ken Coleman’s career podcast might be a good place to start!

Corporate strategy is the obvious one for consultants. Go grab one of those jobs (bonus points if you can land at a company you might be interested in staying at for a while) and then you can think about it further there with less stress.
