Hey sorry this might be out of context i really loved your post. A quick question, how did you begin your career as a consultant
My first job was for a ~25-person firm in Germany that was doing SAP work for Lufthansa (though prior to me joining) and VW; I was mostly coding and had little client interaction. After that I joined a firm in London that mostly producing tooling and marketing strategy for larger brands with a UK presence; the firm had amazing sales people. At some point after that I started to do everything I could to speak to people as high up as I could and pitch them offerings.
