I want out of FS, want to try a different industry, easier to make the change internally or go to competitor?

Try the internal change first. You might go to a competitor but could be placed on something worse

I was in the same boat -- hated fs..removed every reference of fs on my resume while keeping experience relevant. Changed primary industry to something other than fs and networked like a nut job. Look for skills that you can use across industries and in high demand -- sell those skills. Worked like a charm

Sometimes switching internally is like starting your career all over again. Folks get amnesia about previous value added because the value wasn't added to them. Give it a shot anyway if you love the culture... and yes, you have to network like a nut job because switching impacts SOMEONE'S bottom line.... and that's what really matters to a lot of folks

After reading so many posts it seems like 90% people in this bowl are searching for partners somewhere. We are all educated enough and work in similar profession so I am thinking why not create our proposals(pic not necessary initially) and start sharing over with each other? If you like the proposal you can then talk and take it forward. Since families are not be involved here I think there'd be no shyness/awkwardness in stating your requirements. Let me know what you all think. No Timepassers!
