Figure out what to do after 5. You can’t go out every night and staring at Netflix gets old fast.

Made switch from industry to consulting so I can hopefully add color.
1. Internal politics - much more prevalent in industry but moves at slower pace than in consulting
2. Consulting has a get it done mentality that isn't easily mimicked. Time constraints for getting resources, data, meetings, facetime all increase. Project timelines will be longer and flexible
3. You'll still learn and work with incredibly smart people
4. After 6, find a hobby. Whether it's gym, cooking, reading, family, find something to focus your efforts on. It'll be a welcome change to not check your emails after a certain time at night.
Enjoy it !

My daughter is a college student fresh into her career. She previously worked for T-Mobile in sales/customer service. She resigned from this role after 3 years for a better opportunity at a tech start-up. She was with the company for 3 weeks, today they called her and said they could no longer afford her salary and would be letting her go. They are paying her a small severance and also allowed her to keep her equipment and office set-up. Does anyone know of any opportunities that are available?
