Try to find out what makes them tick, why are they doing this, what do they try to accomplish.

Don't fight 'em, help them win and chances are you'll win yourself in the process. Fighting them is something I tried many times and never succeeded at, even if I was right on so many levels... If you can't beat them, join them.

Hi Salesforcers, i have a friend of mine who wants to switch careers from banking to tech. He of course doesn't have any tech background and has asked me about a good paying and somehow easy to learn IT job to get into. I have a very basic knowledge about Salesforce admin role but I know of someone who did some bootcamp training and got a decent job as an admin. So my question is that true? If so what kind of training can be taken and how to land a job after?

Would you leave a job paying you $170k base plus $230k in earned commission for one paying 230k base plus bonus that would get you over 400k TC? Commission plans can always change so maybe worth taking the extra base? Not factoring in all the stuff associated with switching employers of course.

The sooner you realize consulting isn’t for everyone… we can move past all the complaining on here 🥴 plenty of positives such as:

1. Great pay
2. Learning Opportunities
3. Exposure
4. Travel/Rewards Perks
5. Weekly HH (you’d be surprised how many companies don’t go out weekly or do events with their team)

Majority of people who dislike consulting are the ones who don’t love high intensity initiatives or burn themselves out by not being more strategic in their work ethic
