Anyone who moved to tech from asset management (RFP team)? Any advice on how to make the switch and what roles to focus on? TIA!

"Tech" is a pretty broad term. Is there a certain area that interests you more?

Are you looking to make the switch internally or at a different company?

My partner is an RFP writer at an asset management firm and wants to shift to fintech or a finance strategy role at FAANG. Since his background is purely finance (no tech whatsoever), it's been hard to get interviews.

Something like biz dev might be the better fit, or some kind of ops or strategy role? It might be about pivoting some of the RFP skills to fit a more strategic JD
