Any tips on going from Commercial Casualty Insurance Underwriter to IB or VC? I have been an analyst for two years and written about 3M in premium and have been advising an insurtech start up on the side too.

Fol lowing

1. Network hard and have a good story. IB and VC are worlds apart so maybe first think about why you want to go into these industries. If you’re interested in VC, get up to speed on the rest of the fintech space in addition to insuretech. Reach out to learn about roles in these industries if you don’t have a strong handle yet.

2. Get your financial fundamentals solid. More important for IB probably but also good tool belt for VC. Lots of resources online - M&I, WO, BIWS

3. Start reading the news and follow deals. Again better if you cater to IB or VC (different company coverage for the two). Understand deal dynamics, rationale, motivation, valuation etc

4. Make a plan for reaching out and map out companies you want to potentially work at. It’s a numbers game to a degree.

I’m really struggling in my current role. I’m a contractor with a healthcare company. When I interviewed for this BA role, I was very forthcoming in that I am not a coder/programmer in any way. “You don’t need to be at all!” 90 days in, they are disappointed that I can’t code in SQL at an advanced level. Next to no training and the training that was provided has been by a developer…who doesn’t get why I don’t know how to code. They are holding on converting me because of this. I’m just lost.

My firm (big law) doesn’t have billable requirement. I was surprised to see that I’m annualized to only hit 1400-1500 billable at most this year. Counting non-billable, it’s in the 1900-2000 range. I’m a junior associate. Should I be concerned? I’m concerned both about my career and health. Career that the partners will think I’m not pulling my weight, health that I only billed that much but why do I feel so freaking overwhelmed, anxious, and tired all the time?
