Trying to decide exit plan. 3rd yr doing insurance coverage litigation, but not sure if I can spin that into in house or a solo gig that won’t be too much of a pay cut at some point (sole breadwinner with family here). Any ideas or anecdotes to help inspire the next steps?

You may be able to find an in-house litigation role. Ideally it would be a small large company with a high volume of nuisance type stuff (think glorified small claims- $30k). If they have 50-100 of these at any time, it makes sense to hire 1 in-house litigator than to keep getting over billed by a firm.

I recently got a verbal offer from KPMG strategy. Is that more prestigious than like, most other firms?

Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.

Is networking still key as an experienced hire? Networking was really helpful when I was applying to consulting as a student, because of the clear recruitment cycle most firms followed. Now that I’m looking to switch to industry, I’m looking at specific roles / depts at specific companies. Companies often seem to want to fill these roles quickly so no time to network, and on networking calls people can’t help as much if you are targeting a specific dept. any thoughts?
