Q&A with Sarah Watson

I’m a senior-level digital strategist, but don’t have experience using more traditional planning tools. I want to stick with strategy; how can I broaden my role without taking steps back in my career?

Some of these posts are ridiculous. They’re like just exited consulting to FAANG/Niche Startup with $150k base and $400k TC with 6 months of experience,you can do it too! Then they ghost or explain that they are a former SWE 😬 coming from MBB. Going to some super Niche role that people with crazy backgrounds are recruited for. Congrats, but not everyone has that background

To ey folks who have experience with GC PERM apps...
