Hi guys, I am yet another, an average career guy, trying to make it big. I had an exp of 1.5yr in PM role after btech and then I did MBA and got a CTC of 12. but I have no idea on how can I use switching and jumping job to increase my salary. If anyone could help me and educate on how much increment I can ask or get on switching after working for 1.5 yrs with current CTC 12(having total of 3yrs exp), I would be in-depth to you, and if I could get to how I can ask for those "150% hike".

Hi, when you try to start with average guy and trying to make it big leaves me (or anyone who is reading) with the image of akshay kumar burning shirt in hera pheri. Jokes aside, yes it's possible. Two reasons, I have done it. My wife has done it (6 lpa to 20 lpa in 2years and 1 switch) my brother has done it. Simple hacks, continuous learning and good networking is what helped us. Also none of us were high achievers but at work we put in a lot of efforts (we knew marks were not going to take us anywhere so we had to work smart and work hard at times)

To answer your dilemma on how to do it? It's better to talk. I hate writing lengthy posts. DM me and we can talk.
