I started in industry 6 months ago and I hate it. Is it too soon to interview to go back to consulting?

My colleague returned back to the firm after being in the industry for 6 months, I think it’s totally fine to start casually browsing for the opportunities

I’ve seen it done for PE - they did it for 6 months, hated it and came back to the same firm.

No. A friend of mine left ACN and headed back in 4 months. Also not a bad time to apply for MBBs

I am a project manager with the strong desire to transition into product management but I’m feeling a little discouraged. Every opportunity I come across mentions 7-10 years experience. I just started training for the Google UX certification with hopes that may better prepare me. Any other suggestions? Words of advice on how to best make this transition?

Thanks in advance!

Hello Everyone,

I interviewed at a product based company and went through all the rounds except the final HR round. The general consensus I got from the panel in the final round was that I have done well and HR will contact me. But a day later I get an email saying that my application has been put on hold after deliberation from the BU and they will reach out soon.

This is the first time I'm interviewing to change organizations so I am pretty confused if this means their way of rejection?

Scored an awesome midlevel role at a remote agency that I negotiated to start in the new year.

I know my leaving will be a shock to my team. Any tips for quitting a job when you really like the people? I have a meeting with my CD scheduled for tomorrow.

Did my decision round with BCG and came out feeling meh. The interviewers pushed me a lot (made me brainstorm on where to start until I found the right place) and didn’t really work with me through the case (just let me go on even if my I was a 0 off in my calculations).

Is this normal? The experience was vastly different from my R1.
