Hi All I am a Key Account manager at a company that manufactures and sells PPE. I moved to London a year ago and have built up a great pipeline and grown the company I work for exponentially.

My question is , how do I go about making the move into software or tech when all jobs require experience in SaaS. Do I have to take a step back in my career back to SDR or AE?

Looking to apply to EYP strategy as a senior associate/consultant. I have 2YOE in consulting (across EY and boutique) and a masters in accounting. Would anyone within the practice be able to give me an overview on the type of projects the practice sells, the type of work I’d be doing in my role, and any insights on the interview cycle? Haven’t applied yet, so a referral would also be appreciated (help me get you a referral bonus!)

Looking for advice. I'm a tax manager that worked at both Big 4 and mid-tier in expat/mobility tax. I want to move away from tax compliance and more into technology. I currently use Excel and VBA for automating processes, and are taking beginner coding classes (Python, intro to programming). What career path do I have? I thought about quitting to do a bootcamp and work as a software developer, but is it too risky? Perhaps I can blend my tax experience and "coding" skills and do tax technology?

Anybody tempted by (rumored) six-figure signing bonuses, special bonuses, and full-time remote work being offered by BigLaw firms? Or is everybody “been there, done that” and never going back to BigLaw? For M&A/corporate transactions, this seems like the best time to re-enter BigLaw (midlevel / senior associate / counsel / Junior partner). The grass is “greener” (with cash), but surely still growing on toxic chemicals.
