I’m 1 year post-MBA and was just let go despite top performance results—firm is not acknowledging COVID layoffs, though. Given 5+ YOE w/background in tech sales could BizOps be a fit? TIA!

Can you elaborate on tech sales? What kind of role were you in?

Sales operations, enterprise sales, and customer success for a series A company focused on media analytics. I’m interested in bizops and recognize it can look differently firm to firm but candidly don’t want to spend most of my time on analysis and then creating tons of slides... looking for something functionally different from consulting, but still strategic / intellectual where I can engage heavily with people, whether internally or externally. I’d appreciate any feedback or points in a direction to explore.

Great, seems like I’m on the right path then. Thanks!
