I’m unsure if media is where I want to be long term. What are other career paths, inside and outside of advertising, that I could follow?

Media is a very broad field and there are varying functions within media. Since you’re only an analyst, not sure what exposure you have working in media and advertising. It depends on your skills and interests before you can even consider pivoting within the field. Perhaps your agency/team is not working on something that is interesting. If you work in analytics, you can easily pivot out of media and into other industries, if you’re good enough

This is my first job in a large corporate company, and I’m trying to gauge how long it normally takes to move from entry level to another internal position in the insurance industry.

I am a top performer, with great metrics, and I have some wonderful connections I’ve made who support me. I just can’t seem to move up. How long did it take you to move up? How many tries did it take?
