Thanks, was more just trying to understand what skills I need to leverage vs what I need to brush up on.

This one is a good one! https://www.amazon.com/BreakIntoVC-Investor-Entrepreneur-Professional-Guidebook/dp/1544934343

Have found that networking is key for VC though, but that book provides great context into industry terminology

Hi, I am going through a few books on consulting and one thing which seems to be given a lot of importance is market sizing. What is the importance of this?

Can someone help me understand this?

It’s so hard seeing so many people make so much more money by switching to new firms. I’m making a strategic move that will probably command more comp in 3-5 years than I would have made if I hadn’t made the jump but my salary bump (25%) isn’t nearly what everyone else is getting right now because I’m basically starting over in a new area. I have serious FOMO. I *think* I did the right thing but now I’m all caught up in comparing myself! Could use some words of encouragement or advice, y’all…

Have an offer in industry. It’s a relatively new company that is growing fast and lots of opportunity to move up quickly and make a difference. Salary increase wouldn’t be large but enough to make a difference. My heart wants to do it but there is risk involved - not as much stability as the Big 4 company I work for and I’m supporting a family. What do I do? Follow my passion or stay in the safe zone given things are still up in the air with Covid? I appreciate your opinion fishes!

I received an offer from Big 4 for an SC3 role. The offer states that I will be eligible for a salary adjustment in Oct 2022. What does this mean? Is that when annual raises occur, or will they review my performance and determine if I should be promoted to manager? I have enough YOE for a manager, but the team recommends that I come in as SC3 to learn how things are done since I have no prior consulting experience.
