Transitioning to Tampa


Patrick Medema San Diego, CA

I am currently an active-duty member that may be transitioning to Tampa from San Diego early next year (medical retirement). Does anyone have experience working in consulting in the Tampa area and, if so, are you available to talk? Thanks.

Hey Senior Chief, I'm not in consulting but we do have PwC based here and they are one of the largest so a lot of opportunity in that area. Just be willing to travel about 80% of the time. Let me know if you need anything else about the surrounding area as well. Happy to help. Just reach out and I'll provide my contact info.

Hi Patrick-
Thanks for your service!
I am based in Tampa and have connections to the Government contracting industry here. So, depending on what type of consulting you are interested in, I am available as a resource to provide you with information to help you start making direct connections.
Let me know what areas of consulting you are targeting as a career.
