Are you set on consulting? Google cloud has roles (sales, sales enablement) that’d fit your profile.

I am absolutely not - I’m in Toronto. Which roles specifically are we talking?

I just got laid off from a strategy consulting boutique in the UK that primarily works with PE funds doing CDD/VDD. It goes without saying that the market is terrible. I suspect no strategy firms are hiring and it will need to be an in-house move or if I could stretch it PE/VC. What are people’s thoughts and does anyone have any advice?
