Hi fishies! I’m currently working in Financial services as a PM ( one year full time experience) and I want to shift my career to go to high tech companies (FAANG) as my goal. With the experience I have, sadly I wasn’t able to get an interview from FAANG. I’ve now got an offer from Accenture working on digital transformation as a PM/PO do you think moving to Accenture would be a good choice and it’ll get me closer to get into FAANG?

Congrats on the opportunity! Sounds like a step in the right direction to me.

Thank you Manager1!

I do - though it also may wear you down to the bone. Consultancies are not known for WLB. (It would make you good Amazon fodder, I guess…)

I was gonna say - pretty much everyone I know from consulting has ended up at Amazon by the end of it, so that's the plan. There's no right or wrong, but my friends stayed for about 2-3 years before they got solid offers coming in

Accenture is definitely a step in the right direction. Congrats on getting it!

Thank you Oracle! Very good to know I’m in the right direction!! 🙏

I had an interview last week for a Jr CW job. All went well it seemed. The CCO’s exact closing words were “You’re gonna have a great career. Your ideas are good”. Additionally, a CD there I contacted on LinkedIn said the CCO liked my book. But he ended by telling me they’re still getting things sorted out and to follow up this week. Don’t know if this is a bad sign I won’t get it or if I’m just being insanely impatient and unrealistic.
