Has anyone made the jump from one industry role to a higher paying industry role? What was the role before and after, and what was the comp change? I hear the job market is hot right now but have a hard time believing I can make significantly more than 300-350k at 7 YOE. Thanks!

20% to 30% jump is what i am hearing frim friends, family and colleages who have made a move.

Serious question here. After making 300k, do you actually see yourself being happier? Or is it just a race game to feel better about yourself? What are you spending your money on that you need more? Yes having more money is always nice, but earning over 300k a year is a lot. I currently earn 90k and I’m super happy…granted this is my first job out of college and being 25 years old (don’t have a lot of responsibilities yet)

Short answer is yes, I feel happier. Making 300k+ is more about feeling recognized / validated in professional success. My partner and I make plenty and have saved / invested plenty at age 30. Any increases are mostly for self evaluation of professional advancement, and partially living in a HCOL area. I really appreciate the focus on WLB (35-50 hr weeks) at my current company while there continues to be many as advancement opportunities. My salary here has doubled in the last 4 years. The happiness comes from allowing myself to devote significant amounts of time to non work hobbies and build deeper connections with friends, which I've started doing during the pandemic (and my most recent promo). This question was mostly around trying to hear other stories of people making it by hopping in industry. I recognize I have a really good setup, but always want to keep evaluating my situation so I can be aware of how good I have it or I'm missing something. 🙏
