Hi all, I'm a PowerPoint monkey moving over from consulting to a PM role. How transferable are my skill-sets (M&A Consulting). Are there any specific skills you'd recommend me brushing up on? Thanks!

Jumped to corporate for a senior accountant role right before senior promo in public for a 50% raise.

Any advice is appreciated!

I have been giving interviews for web automation roles since Feb and got my first offer on 1st March.

I have hands-on experience with only desktop based application automation using Vbscript, Shell script, Jenkins, JUnit, Docker and Azure.

I have acquired quite a good grasp on Selenium, Java, Rest Assured through online.

What could be the expectations from a Senior QA role in a company like Informatica?
As I don't have hands-on experience with web automation I am a bit anxious.

I’ve been at FAANG for a year and due to the economic climate I’m considering going back to consulting but I’d rather work at MBB than Big4 if I’m going to do consulting.
Does such a switch happen often? I’m thinking about going to the technical wings of MBB companies like Quantum Black. I also have a non target school so don’t know about my chances.

I ultimately want to be a consultant.

I have over 12 years in B2B sales/sales management experience along with a graduate degree. I am wanting to shift gears and I am at a point where I can invest time in myself to learn through practical experience. The new industry I am wanting to pursue is real estate investment. I have read all the books but want some hands on experience on the property management side. How could I best leverage my skills for a role in this, and what should my expectations be for negotiation in compensation?

I like the industry, but don’t like my role, especially as I move up career ladder (AS->AD). Any advice on what type of roles I should explore within the agency world or elsewhere that would match my skillset, which is basically managing and delegating? Experiencing a major career crisis, realising I don’t want to be my boss anymore and want to live a normal life that doesn’t require a therapist. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Just found out that end of the year I will be promoted from analyst directly to VP and since it’s such a large jump I’ll be the lowest paid VP in asset management at only $135k TC. Should I stay it out and wait for TC to align or take the promotion and jump ship bc I will likely get paid more elsewhere given how recruiters/other companies eat up hiring recently promoted ppl from other firms?
