The title pretty much sums it up. For most of my life, I was a nobody. I went to a state school and received a horrible GPA (was going through some personal issues). Turned that around and went through a series of companies before getting intoconsulting. After working on a few F500 projects (on the tech side), I came to (again in Tech Consulting). After some resourceful networking, managed to get onto an S&O Project at a global bank. I was the only non S&O resource. After about 3 days on the project, I was rolled off and now I'm back on a Technology Project.
I feel like most of my life, I've kept reaching for the next best thing. Its seemed like a natural progression and each move was fairly calculated.
I feel like I've just missed out on a life changing opportunity. I was the only one from my entire undergrad who got into a commercial practice (not federal) at a consulting firm, only one out of my circle who even managed to get on an S&O Project (despite it ending shortly after).
What can I do better next time?
A few observations:
1. The S&O Analysts were much better in /PPT than I was (Note: I'd mostly been on implementations on the tech side)
What can I do in the meantime to prepare myself for making this transition in the future? This happened this week and I must say, I"m fairly depressed.
