(2/X) How do I figure out what it is I want to do? Would switching to consulting really make anything better? Should I go into HR? Business Development? The ultimate end goal is probably to become a professor, however, I want more real world experience before jumping into academia again. Anyone ever totally switched industries?

Took advantage of the WFH situation and am currently taking pre req classes to get into a physician assistant school while working.
