Always keep your options open, the more opportunities you have the more attractive you are to them. If they hear you’re looking and have interest from others, that puts the pressure on them. But it’s a fine line, you have to still make it seem like they are where you want to be but that you’re not desperate.

What does the Investor Relations career path look like for someone coming in at an early-ish level?

Anyone know people who took this path?
