If you're technical, you can go anywhere. I'm exiting to FAANG.

Totally depends on your skill set. I’ve seen people go FAANG, government, NGO/think tank, finance, pharma, etc. If you can spin your story well then lots of places will be open.

Here is my idea for a startup! I collect all the data from career transitions and use Data Analytics to predict the most likely career transitions. I could start with consulting. What do you guys think about this? I would be able to predict based on your firm(mbb, big4), your experience, which role you are likely to move (Faang pm, strategy manager, move to mbb). I have all the data to do this, but wanted your thoughts. Would the output of this be relevant to you?
