Tough dude. Project management from KPMG to industry is even more difficult. Deloitte would have been a different story. I would suggest if it's not too late look to join a different group and pick up some skills.

Looking to make a move to a boutique for this reason. What I am doing now, could have done 90% of it in undergrad.

@pwc1 which boutiques are you looking at?

@accenture1 what career are you trying to move into?

I'm trying to move more into healthcare strategy. Right now I'm in oil and gas technology, white difficult to move laterally within the company.

@accenture1 when do you start bschool and where?

I'm applying round 1 now. I want to go to INSEAD

Currently talking to recruiters for a new job and it is honestly such a turnoff when they talk too much about having a strong company culture and/or talking about making sure I'm a good fit culturally. For me that borders on culty and is a red flag. I would much rather hear from a recruiter that a workplace's "culture" is that they are accepting of all cultures, diversity, and personality types.
