I am making around $60k as experienced associate. How much of a salary jump can I expect if I exit to industry right now?

^no way associates in industry are making $80K. Probably not a very large bump at the associate level. If you can somehow manage your way into a senior associate position you're probably looking around $85K, but that's for 3-4 years experience. With only 2 busy seasons under your belt (assuming this upcoming one is your second), you're probably looking around $65K - $70K max. And that's NYC. Subtract $10-$15K for smaller markets.

^ we just brought in our latest IT advisory staff 1 hire class at 78-80k. It's insanity, been increasing 3-5k every year.

Well if you can find a job that you're qualified for 10-20k. Good luck though

For the market it's not a bad package. I'd say look to NYC for greater opportunity if that's of interest. Be prepared for the small living spaces though.

^agree with rsm look for NYC for most $$ and consider living in NJ or Staten Island where you can find rent in the low 1000s instead of 2-3k

^might as well just stay in your home market and live somewhere nice. For low 1000s you're basically living in the ghetto (assuming you're talking 1 bedroom or studio).

I started learning last summer (right after graduating from college). I am self-taught and I usually get a round in once a week. I never play with others as I have no golf buddies and I am pretty scared to join strangers as I still am pretty early in the learning phase. I can break 90 consistently but never got below 82. Any suggestions on finding golf buddies to make my rounds more fun?
