Looking for advice on career pivoting as it has been daunting. I have 10-YOE in public policy in Infrastructure financing, governance strategies and financial mgmt. Given my transferable skills, I have narrowed down my career pivot to :
1- Tier-1 consulting firms in strategy or business
2 - Non- technical role in a tech firm interested in fintec, AI and supply chain.
Any fishes willing to have chats and give advice on how I can proceed ?
