I’m 3 years into strategy consulting (eg, market entry, commercial DDs, market growth, etc) and I’m curious what industry exit opportunities are out there beyond joining an in-house Strategy team. I don’t have any real technical skills beyond ppt and model making. I’m great with people and know how to structure strategy projects. I’m having a hard time visualizing where my skills fit in industry.

I already feel myself not wanting to be here long, but I'm putting pressure on myself to not be a quitter. Would you stick it out or start looking?
