HI everyone. I very recently joined PwC as a Technology Consultant (I moved over from a big tech company where I was in business development and solution engineering), but my goal is to be in an internal role that isn't client-facing and is more projects- / ops-based. What opportunities are there at PwC for this? Which LOBs should I look into? Is there anyone I should reach out to? I have read about Trust Services and IFS, and am also very interesting in marketing or sales operations.
