Hello Fishes,

I am switching to a boutique strategy consulting firm (only possible switch given my workex) next month.

WE - 3 yrs (1.5 yrs post tier-2 MBA in an automotive OEM)

Need some guidance on the following:
1. Career progression in the industry
2. Realistic exit opportunities to Big 4 and Big 3
3. Approximate pay bracket for different levels

It would be great if someone can throw some light on the queries.

Thanks in advance.

Hello YOE - 4.5, BA in credit risk domain. However, I do not possess enough knowledge in the domain and confused about moving forward with this. What should I work on to excel in the CR domain given I have no certification/courses done around finance?
Help needed.

In my second busy season of PA (2 years ago), auditing a specialty finance company that we all quickly came to realize stunk to high hell. We ended up issuing an adverse opinion over a disagreement with the client to book an approx. 100MM write down adjustment to deferred revenue. We walked away with the thought that we had just scratched the surface of their corruption. Fast forward 2 years and low and behold they’re under a 1.2B dollar investigation by the SEC and their CEO is in prison.


Hi Fishes,

I'm currently working as a Business Analyst and I have 2.6 YoE. My current domain is BFSI and I'm planning to do Salesforce admin certification. I don't have any prior experience with Salesforce l, would I be able to switch my domain to Salesforce easily?

Could you please suggest if I would be getting jobs in it as I don't have any prior experience of it. How's the market for Salesforce. Please let me know your suggestions.

Hello everyone,

I am currently a HR Generalist for a small aerospace company, located in CA. I have been in a generalist role for a little over 4 years now and before that, I did recruiting/safety for about 3 years. I am now looking into getting my HR Certification, but am stuck in between the PHR-CA or the SHRM-CP. Does anyone have any recommendations they can give me?


Does anyone know of recruiting firms with a focus on Anti-money laundering? I’m foreign educated and newly admitted NY attorney with CAMS certification but living in Miami lol. I’m here, because my husband practices in SoFlo. Any recommendations? I don’t have any experience but have CAMS.


I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

Would it be difficult to transition tech sales role? I’m mid-30s and have experience at large agencies & in-house for a brand for 13+ yrs.
