Need some career advice. I’m currently a Salesforce consultant in healthcare, looking to pivot to work within the political sphere - specifically social impact/policy. I’m passionate about driving societal change, and have struggled to feel like I can do so in my current role. Healthcare is also not of particular interest to me. What are some possible routes I can take from here? And/or specific companies I should look into?

You’ll likely need to follow an academic route...public policy, law school, etc. Apparently grifting can land you the presidency but the traditional route would be academia and/or work in the public sector.

Definitely do NOT go to law school

Also can you define what “driving societal change” means?

Following as well.....currently I’m just trying to find the pro bono projects within my company

I’m on a very similar boat OP.

What are peoples opinions on work from home? It seems to be an unpopular opinion but as a junior I despise it.

I’ve never at all had mental health issues before but now am really starting to feel burnt out and anxious most of the time. What do you think?
