Industry Advice: I am currently in a Commercial P&C CSR broker position working with manufacturing and staffing clients. I am working towards a promotion within my same team in the near future but an Account Manager position has opened up now in the construction space within our office. Should I voice my interest in the construction AM role even though I have a limited amount of construction experience or wait the six months for the AM position on my current team?

Go ahead and apply!

Apply for it, but make sure it’s known that it’s just because you want to advance your career, not that you’re trying to get away from your current team. It may motivate your current team to promote you, or you may actually find you’re suited for the Construction gig.

Go for it. Construction is a lucrative niche

I just lateraled about a month ago and have been really struggling since. I’ve been constantly making really stupid errors that have never been an issue before. I wasn’t worried about it at first, but now that things keep happening I can’t help but feel like I’m setting a horrible first impression and am getting really anxious. I’m regretting lateraling because I had a lot of goodwill at my old firm. Anyone been in this position?

Current analyst (1.5 YOE) here with a strong interest in DevOps and Project Management. I feel like I am slowly but surely getting pigeon-holed in L&D work. I don’t like it, but my leaders continue to tell me that all experience is good experience. Should I try to breakout and find a variety of experience this early in my career or should I try to make it to 3 years and re-evaluate then? Have you had a similar experience? What have you done?

Scored an awesome midlevel role at a remote agency that I negotiated to start in the new year.
I wanted a nice winter break before starting but also wanted to give my bosses plenty of time to find a replacement. I’m happy to stay till the holidays so I can finish up my responsibilities. We’re a small agency and I’m one of two ADs.
I know my leaving will be a shock to my team. Any tips for quitting a job when you really like the people? I have a meeting with my CD scheduled for tomorrow.

Is anyone else worried about how HOT the lateral market is right now?

I’m definitely happy for them, but at the same time slightly concerned that we’re re-living the 2007 bubble. Please tell me I’m overthinking this...
