HR Manager here! I think focusing on HR Generalist and Management skills/books would be useful. I read a lot of them back in grad school and they still resonate with me today. Also, you should study for and take the PHR. That’ll get you a lot of information and a leg up when applying for roles.

"Everybody can be a leader" some say... "Leaders are nurtured not born" say others... True.

But... this is also true: "not everybody wants to be a leader" (whether they can or can't be). It is a fairly common practice in organizations with traditional career management structures for people to "be promoted" into leadership roles as the "end steps of the corporate ladder" that was climbed doing technical work. And, unfortunately, this doesn't work all the time

Need some insight 🙂 While my job still says KPMG, I moved to a small local firm as an S1 and was recently promoted to a supervisor (manager is about 1-2 years out). I’d like to get into internal audit but am wondering about my chances of getting senior IA positions or if I’m better off boomeranging into risk assurance and maybe applying for manager roles in internal audit in a couple years. I’m in an awkward in between senior/manager spot.

One of the reasons I want to transition from industry to consulting (tier 1) is that I get frustrated when I have to collaborate with mediocre people. My assumption is that Tier 1 consulting firms hire really sharp people and if I can get in, I’ll be collaborating with folks on top of their game (not expecting much from clients). I’m aware there are personal aspects I need to work on like my mindset, patience etc etc, but I just get so frustrated with blatant stupidity.

Hi! I have worked in management roles in tech, mainly in analytics, for approximately 10 years. My TC has fluctuated (currently around 135K CAD), but it seems like it's relatively easy to breach the 100K bar, but hard to breach the 150K bar. I now work at the CBC, but I have worked in the private sector too. What is the most realistic way to move to 200K? 1) Continue moving the ladder to a VP position, 2) Switch to Pre-Sale, 3) Switch to Consulting, 4) Work from a U.S. company from Canada.
