Hi Hoyas,

Some of the most intellectually stimulating and dynamic careers are found at the intersections of 2 or more industries. These cross-sectoral opportunities merge together the organizational/business cultures of each component industry while dampening some of the extremes of either industry individually (e.g., very long work hours; minimal geographic flexibility; slow career progression; low compensation; etc.) These types of roles attract senior talent from both industries, and so provide early-career professionals opportunities to establish broader, cross-sectoral professional networks. This similarly increases the selection of ‘exit-opportunities’ when you are ready to move jobs–since you have experiences and contacts that are relevant to jobs in both of the component industries as well as roles at a different organization within the intersection industry. 

If you are interested in one or more of the major “traditional” industries, here are some additional intersectional areas that may be of interest (along with example organizations at each):
