Curious if there are any Director level people in this bowl that managed to exit to an industry (FS) role by applying to a job posting at an organization where they had no relevant connections/referrals. How did you manage to land the exit ? Would appreciate any insights aside from the typical paths of networking your way in, ATS bingo, pain letters, or reaching out to the hiring manager on LinkedIn.
