About to exit to an internal strategy/consulting role at a F100 but wasn’t my first choice of exit op. Was going for FP&A (and think I’m qualified for it) but despite having extensive modeling and experience all the HR screening calls red flagged me for not explicitly having IB experience in my resume. Still a little salty since most of my consulting’s projects involved working in/with FP&A teams which seems more or at least equally relevant to having IB experience

@pwc1 it’s in FS with a ~30% base increase. No travel (which was a positive for me). Allegedly better wlb (from what I’ve heard it’s not 40hours but better then I’ve been getting). I think no IB experience wasn’t an issue for this specific group since it’s got a lot of ex consultants compared to ex bankers.

My people. Following to find exits, looking for Strategic Finance/CorpDev type work but similar to M1 the lack IB experience is hurting me. Only hit so far is a corp reporting role

Ethical question: would you try to negotiate a raise in current job if you know you’re actively looking elsewhere? Context: had an incredibly challenging year with a huge project that completed successfully. Extremely complex tasks and long hours. Got an award for “disruption” but in summary, the role evolved and now I want to ask for market adjustment /as well as merit raise. I also hate what I do at the moment and can’t wait to leave, but might take months. Should I still ask for a raise?

My niche area has really burnt me out, as it’s very political and I want to expand my horizons. I am already working on completing my GPHR certification. Any other tips?
