A lot of corporate development is focused on project management (due diligence, sourcing etc)

Focus on your ability to manage projects and deliverables with tight deadlines. Emphasize the complexity of your work and ability to pick up financial modeling.

In summary, project management + quick learner. I think that is your best shot.

I've pinpointed one of my main pervasive struggles in life: No matter how much I study / learn / improve myself and no matter how confident I am or how much of an expert / smart / skilled / good I think I am, I have very very low confidence that I can get anyone else to see my worth in any way. Jobs / interviews, dating, friends. I think I'm handsome and cool and smart and great in a lot of ways. I love me lol. But I have huge doubts anyone else can see what I see in myself.

Not sure what's wrong with companies (HRs) these days.

I've lost 2 offers just because of my joining date and for which I've specifically said that my notice period would be 60 days.
After taking multiple rounds of interview and taking documents then HR would come back that we can only offer if you can join within 'X' days.

Literally frustrated with these sorts of tactics.

PS: one of the companies was a well known US based card company.
Pss: i really want to quit my current company.

I accepted a verbal offer on Fri. & written offer today, waiting on background check before giving notice. This afternoon my first choice reached out for a 2nd interview (after saying they’d be in touch either way by last Tues. and then hearing nothing). Would it be stupid and/or shady of me to take the interview? I’m excited about the one I accepted so wouldn’t want to withdraw without another offer, but this one would be a title promotion vs. lateral, & a $30K+ raise over the one I accepted.
