Hi Salesforcers, i have a friend of mine who wants to switch careers from banking to tech.

If so what kind of training can be taken and how to land a job after?

A couple questions for the turnaround consulting fishes:
1. Is FP&A experience valuable for restructuring/turnaround consulting? I’m a CPA with experience in Big 4 FDD and a short stint in IB. Total work experience is a little over 2 years. I recently joined a RE company as a Sr FA in FP&A where I expect that I’ll be mostly doing budgeting & forecasting work.
2. If my goal is turnaround consulting, what should I focus on right now to best position myself?

I appreciate any insights/guidance.

Hello fishes,

I'm in dilemma! I have around 5 yoe in analytics and this would be my first switch.

I have an offer from Barclays; monthly salary will be in-hand 1.2 Lac. Around 25k spending on rent +food will be there as I to work from Noida.

And, here, I am doing WFH from tier-2 city and my in-hand salary is 95k. Also, there are good chances of getting on shore opportunity after 2 years. Cons: not much to learn now so getting bored.

So, salary wise they'll be same.

Switch or not to switch?
