ADVICE NEEDED: I just received a job offer in a new industry. An industry I’ve always wanted to try, but maybe not in the right practice. However, it’s not a bad offer and I’m scared it won’t come again. Do you think I should wait a few months and keep applying until I find a job that I am 100% happy to take without hesitation or does it usually never work that way? Thanks!

Is networking still key as an experienced hire? Networking was really helpful when I was applying to consulting as a student, because of the clear recruitment cycle most firms followed. Now that I’m looking to switch to industry, I’m looking at specific roles / depts at specific companies. Companies often seem to want to fill these roles quickly so no time to network, and on networking calls people can’t help as much if you are targeting a specific dept. any thoughts?
