What’s the best way for experienced professionals to pivot into consulting? I have 20 years management experience and 15 years in supply chain from demand planning back to procurement. I’m interested in management/leadership consulting or supply chain consulting. Any tips?

Is it worth giving this feedback and ask for things to change, or should I just leave lol?

It’s very discouraging to continuously receive these rejection emails. With 9 years of supply chain experience, I am not sure why I would not be able to at least get an interview for entry level roles that require no experience. Not just this one pictured but others as well. I’ve applied to maybe 60 positions since May, both mid level and “entry” and no interviews. I’ve had my resume professionally re-written twice. Not sure where the disconnect is. Anyone else going through this same thing?
