There are groups doing commercial work at BAH. Try to do some of that work for a few months, update resume so it's tailored to commercial, and then start networking/applying. If you've never worked on commercial clients before, it will be very tough to move firms to do commercial work.

What are your quals/selling points? I assume you're not going to peddle PPBE expertise or knowledge of the defense acquisition process.

What don't you like about federal?

What were you promised when you joined your firm? "Work with the best and smartest, solve important problems, learn from business leaders, find future opportunities that will be lucrative, gain experience that will make you valuable in the c suite..." none of that exists in federal

Why is that? I was considering going federal.

I think you push into the aerospace/defense or Industrial Goods practices in B4. There are tons of Ian who want that referral 💰 and will get you an intro.

Ian?
