Everyone says there r great exit opportunities for bankers. The tech companies find the work that I have doing unappealing. Tips transitioning to ops/management work?

What work have you been doing? OPS / Management is a wide topic. You’d be best suited finding a role in something you’re good at. Middle Office is generally best suited if you want to go to buy side or front office. Otherwise, you can try your hand managing settlements, margins, confirmations, etc (but most likely need experience in those divisions)

If you're IBD and can't find a job in tech, I think you just have to reposition yourself in how you tell your story. Lots of roles in tech, including corp dev and strat & ops, that you would fit right into

Then I FINALLY brush my teeth and do my eyebrows. Back on a call then I’ll put on clothes. Next I’ll scroll on social media aimlessly CON
