Feeling very anxious these days. I still have my current job, a potential promotion this year, and a safe-choice job offer but not something that I wanted. Really want to jump ship but feel pretty burned out from the job application process after 40+ app and a few final round interviews. I plan to apply to McKinsey but my referrer left the firm 🙁, now I need to start over and to find someone else. Please send encouragement my way to have the energy for this process.

Is it wrong to not want a promotion? Ive been told I’m on track for one soon but I still have sooo much to learn at this level and I don’t feel ready to move up. I am, in fact, terrified of the next step and the responsibilities that come with it. Has anyone turned down a promotion and regretted it? Been glad about it?

I’m stressing out! I spent some time interviewing this summer just to get some interview practice while it’s convenient. However, I ended up with an awesome offer to join a large public company’s internal audit department. I’m extremely torn between if this is the right move or not and was wondering if anyone has found themselves or has watched a friend/peer make this move? Pay bump is significant (like 80% increase in total comp) but I just don’t know if I’ll like it. Any thoughts appreciated!

Hi all, I’m wrapping up my first year in audit and am looking to a potential exit in sales - I have my CPA exams passed but don’t have the 1 year experience quite yet. I have a final round interview for an entry level SaaS sales role with a first year base of ~75k and 20-30k in commissions assuming I meet my targets. I have a feeling if I secure the position, I won’t be able to delay the start date before I hit my 1 year experience mark. I want the credential but don’t want to pass this up.
