I just accepted an IR associate role with a PE firm that is an amazing opportunity. More than doubles my pay (210 TC) and still doesn’t feel real. I’m usually a very confident person but I was somewhat pessimistic in the process because I didn’t expect to get the role or that I’d see that income at 24. I went from nervous that I wouldn’t get it to nervous I won’t do well. Not sure what’s happening but can I get any tips or best practice rec’s from PE IR folks? I want to hit the ground running.

Imposter syndrome is normal. Bear in mind, if you weren’t deserving of the job, you wouldn’t have gotten it. Skillset will vary depending on whether you’re on the business development side or the project management side (it varies at each firm how it’s split out). Use the first three months to ask questions, while trying to solve your own questions first (without spinning your wheels). Try to become an expert to your team on either the products/client types you cover. Remember your career is a marathon, not a sprint

I really appreciate the feedback. You’re night thank you. I think I will essentially be on both sides if my understanding is correct it’s a very lean team so we’re wearing multiple hats in the interim. I will definitely heed the advice on becoming an expert on clients. The marathon advice was key

Be able to turn stuff quickly. If you don’t know, don’t be afraid to ask. Be hot.

Hello!
I am currently a substation design electrical engineer 1.

I am making $71k a year from a large Consulting firm.

I have a bachelors and masters degree in Electrical Engineering. I have passed the FE & PE exams, I am an EIT, and I have a year of experience outside of school. Three internships as an engineer while I was in school.

I feel like I am underpaid and would like to know the thoughts of others. I feel undervalued in comparison to what other companies over that do the same work.

Hello,fishes!(1YOE-SDET)
I'm trying to attend several interviews. My current CTC is <10LPA, therefore even if I switch jobs and am offered a package that is 40%–50% higher than my current CTC, my new income won't be much higher than 12LPA–13LPA. However, I am on the lookout for even better ones. So, if there is a negotiation, can I mention to HR that I already have an offer of at least 12 lpa and persuade them to give me more? Will this ruse succeed? Or will they demand to show an offer letter?
