What if this role is gonna run for 1+ year, and it will be the latest role before I apply to Strat Consulting.

Obviously we all know when it comes to the resume, we focus on the insights rather than the tool. I ask about potential upside and downside of the role since it is one among the options I have right now, not how to frame things or focus on things on the resume. So your condescending response is uncalled for and simply makes me question if you are really cut out for “consulting.”

OP, where are you planning on going?

Yup Power BI is a good tool, it will teach you how to cleanse and structure data you’re given and tell a story with it to let people make informed decisions.
