Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything.

I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

We’re so close to getting his expenses covered, and after all he’s done to show up to our team.. I’m trying to show up to him in my fullest capacity. Thank you!!

Do you get a promotion as per normal cycle or do you have to apply to be promoted, and solve a case study and present to a panel as part of it.

They have two years of data on me and my performance anyway and prior to this job posting they had been saying I would get promoted before eoy 2021.

First week at new job and I find that 4 of the 5 member panel that interviewed me don't work with the firm (non F500 CorpDev) anymore. It's only been 2 days here and I'm expected to get the job done and take lead on new deals since they're understaffed and have multiple competing investment opportunities. While I don't mind putting in the hours, I feel kinda less confident about the team as a large reason for me to join the firm were these people that don't work here anymore (all ex MBB/IB)
