Howdy! I’m 26, and I’ve been doing construction management for a few years now. I’ve had different roles ranging from superintendent, project manager, to estimating. For the past few months, I’ve self-reflected and realized that construction is not my calling... I would really like to pivot into a different industry but I’m not sure how to break into the consulting or analytics world. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
