Could just be my circle but it seems like people used to travel by car a lot more often. Now it seems like everyone flies for vacation.

Kinda funny since now cars a lot more comfortable and efficient and we have nav for directions and a lot more to keep us busy on long drives (phones, iPads, and such)

Currently consultant at Deloitte in IT strategy and transformation consulting (europe, 2YOE + 3Y PT).
If my career goal is to reach executive level, what should I do :
- stay at my firm and wait 2/3 years before making manager and reevaluate
- aim for MBB IT strategy consulting, I would probably have to start back at entry level
- aim for big tech
I’m scared that if I go to MBB or Big tech, since I’ll probably be in an « analyst » position of some sort, I still won’t have leadership experience.
