I think hiring a career coach or even seeking out an executive search firm who places senior level candidates such as yourself would be a great way to get you to your next step in your career. Also try to figure out what industry or even companies that you are interested in for your next role. Once you get that down, you can start to virtually network with professionals in those places on LinkedIn.

Thank you!

Absolutely. Career coaches can definitely help you navigate this new chapter for you. And it’s never too late to start a new chapter and build new connections.

Caught up with some college friends this weekend who are working in technical software sales…making a lot of money with not many years of experience. Do any fish out there have experience in software tech sales? Is switching over from consulting going to close the door on future ops? I feel like even though it might increase Comp it limits your learning/experience

I need to know if I’ve pigeon-holed myself. I have an undergrad in music business, and got a lot of good experience then. Worked in live events for 4 years before returning to law school, intending to practice in entertainment law (specifically music). Got a summer internship at a boutique entertainment firm, but no offer due to the small market. Moved to a larger market, but I’m not in one of the “hotspots”. I’m in-house currently, and have moved up quickly. (Cont.)

I feel I'm being underpaid, and would like to see what some of the salaries are. Thanks, Mike

I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.

Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move. I’m considering Marina Del Rey as I want to be a bit closer to the office (in Venice) and the airport for when things open back up/travel resumes. I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂
