I’ve worked in account management since I graduated college and am now 27. I like what I do, and believe I am good at it but it’s no longer something I really have a passion for.
I’d love to find an internal role that isn’t client facing. Any suggested roles to look into from former account folks?
I was thinking ops but I started a role at a new company this year and their ops teams seems to do wildly different work than my last company so im not too sure.

How do you maintain a healthy relationship with your luxury fashion items? How do you feel watching Youtubers show off their luxury bag collections? I find it off-putting because I don’t even want to have that many luxury bags—I’d take them for granted. Do you feel influenced by others in the professional setting, or maybe even under the pressure to look good among peers in high earning industries? If not, what drives you to make a purchase for yourself? Would love to hear your thoughts
Tad off topic, but how about those Minecraft folks 😅
To those not familiar, the less professional part of the web has been abuzz with controversy over probability in a videogame, complete with statistical analyses pretending to be written up as papers. The gist is that a speedrunner (someone who tries to beat a game as fast as possible) got extremely lucky or cheated. The whole fiasco has unfolded into multiple freelance gigs and rebuttals. Pretty entertaining read, do recommend looking it up.
Big law specialist with an offer to be the CFO and GC of a 250M AUM hedge fund. All in comp would probably be ~$300k, so about $100k less than where I would be in big law (including bonus). Potential to get involved in the business side, but most likely more of a back office role (I would also be the only legal hire - main goal would be cutting outside legal cost and streamlining processes). Does this sound like an attractive offer? What exit options would I have?

Am I getting played if my MD is saying I can switch projects (been here 2y) but it’ll take 12-18 months for it to be the “right time”. Do I trust them or just find a new job to put my career first? Seems like if it wasn’t BS they’d help me faster. I doubt they put clients on hold for 12-18 months…

Never heard of this and don’t want to pay for another CT scan at my new dental office
Fellow Fishes -
How did you all deal with failure in your career. I was ambitious and smart. I was in IBM and considered to be one of the best of my class. I was fired and haven’t really found my way.
I don’t know what to do anymore. 3 years after the fact, I am still at an entry level position. I hate myself for letting things get this bad but I don’t know how to get out of this perpetual cycle. I tried working my ass off but have not been able to shake off that unfortunate past.
