If you're at a large firm, networking broadly internally can be an incredibly effective path to identifying your next target role (whether internal or external). I'm honestly only still at BAH because they empowered me to completely shift directions, move to a different part of the firm, and pursue a new interest from the foundation of my transferable skills. Big firms can allow you to solve this problem without leaving the company, but they also give you exposure for a more targeted external job search if you're set on moving on.

Sign up for stretch assignments and try something out to see if you like it. I’ve bounced around from copy writing, marketing strategy, brand management, experience design, product management, UX research… I’ve just raised my hand for the additional projects that you do off the side of your desk to figure out how I want to grow next.

Should you stay in a position that has very limited promotion opportunities because of its org structure? We have a relatively small team of various bands of staff level who report to a Director who has no intentions of adding additional mgt layers (understandably). There is apparently growth opportunities on a IC track, but those don’t seem to be granted as often as management promotions. If I want to grow into a more strategic role overall, what other options should I look into/discuss?

Dating an older man (he’s mid 40s, I’m mid 20s). We are pretty serious so we are having open conversations about money and whatnot. We just split the cost of a trip 50/50, which was a bit of a push for me but I did it anyways. When talking about future trips, I mentioned that I cannot always split the cost down the middle because I can’t afford as much as he can. I make 100k, he makes ~900k. He retorted that he has so many more expenses than me (which is true... mortgages, etc.) but that (cont.)
