Try to latch on to any customer/commercial opportunities you can at your firm... I have found it to be difficult to advance career in consulting while simultaneously advancing placement in industry marketing/sales... But you can at least get your foot in the door

Second year Consultant who came from a benefits broker. I feel like I am very much still learning the ropes of consulting. Was asked to help on a deck for proposal work for something I have no background/knowledge in. Told by the partner that I wouldn’t be creating content just story boarding and managing and organizing in the deck. The manager, familiar with the proposed solution, however seems to be annoyed with me that I didn’t create content. Not sure what to make of this?
