I started working 2 years ago as a benefit analyst in pension outsourcing. I realized that I don’t want to stay in pension outsourcing for a long term. I am not sure how to make the transition or if my current experience will be relevant enough to secure a decent role.
Has anyone here made such move before? Can you please advise on where I can try to get? I have an MBA with a concentration in healthcare administration and this current is my very first one after graduation.
I work in the Human Capital space and manage projects. What is worth more - SPHR or PMP? Or do either count? Obviously want to make Director and eventually more...

Hi fishes. Is it a fact that PWC payscale is relatively low compared to other Big4s?
I have been approached by PwC HRs twice in last 2 months, both times they did not even shortlist me stating that my expected CTC is high.
YoE =6.5yrs + 2yrs tier2-MBA
Expected CTC= 1.4x
2nd time they approached, I even brought down my exp CTC to 1.3x. Still they said PwC does not have budget.
I already have offer of 1.45x from another Big4. Its only PwC that is not budging. :(

My partner and I (both in our 20s) would like to get a house but it seems like we either get it now or in the next 5 years. I plan to get my MBA full time in 2022 (sponsored, hopefully), which means I would have no work history for two years. My partner will likely do a year long clerkship in 2021 that will sky rocket his income after, but since it is a pay cut it will not look good for preapproval. Right now, we have been employed for 2 years with a good combined income. Should we wait it out?

I'm at a career juncture and have decided on a career in anti-money laundering as my new path. I'm also highly interested in additional education to further my career and am eyeing graduate school.

How do you handle a rude recruiter? I had a recruiter ask my salary expectations, and when given I was told I was asking too much (I was in line with my current role and competitive salary in NYC,) and I shouldn’t ask for that because “I just don’t have that much to offer.”
I have only been at my company for 1year, changed roles once and I just networked with an executive level staff that would like to open a role for me on their team which is directly in line with where my real career interests are.

My employer heavily encourages networking internally and taking charge of your career path but I don’t hate my current job and enjoy my team.
