I have developed new never worked territories, and have target recruited for everything from cyber to mechanics. I was also a trainer responsible for over 90 recruiters in seven states and four countries. What type of work should I be looking for as I get out. I do have a bachelors in human resources

Anyone transition from consulting in Tech/IT into medical school? I'm in my early twenties and studied pre-med and Engineering. Medicine is my passion, though.

I got a job in-house 6 months after working at a law firm. I really love the work I’m doing (a little bit of everything) but am not getting the mentorship and training I should be getting. Do you think I should try to get a job at a law firm and then try to go back in-house in 2-3 years? Or just try to switch companies to get better mentorship?

Looking for some advice on a couple of offers I have.

The first offer is for an Account Executive position at a smaller company with a base of $50k and another $20k in OTE.

The second offer is for a BDR position at a larger and faster growing company with a base of $60k and another $20k in OTE. Also some stock options but they aren’t public yet.

I have 2 YOE as a BDR and think I could succeed in either position. Both have hybrid work set ups. Any thoughts or advice is appreciated! Thanks.
