Interested in moving to strategy from tech in entry level role. Should I wait until Fall to hit 1 YOE before looking? Mindful of missing out on current hiring frenzy. I’m currently a high performer at my firm, on track for promotion ~1 year from now, and only working ~40 hours/week, but I don’t find the work interesting at all (PMO for ERP implementation).

I mean this respectfully, with 2-3 months of experience, I’d sit tight. Learn the basics and then switch at 1 YOE. Life is long. You’ll get there! FOMO is real, but you’re not truly missing out.

I’m about 9 months in, would that change your answer at all? I’m happy doing what I’m doing for a little while longer, but I have no interest in making a career out of PMO/ERP and don’t want to “pigeonhole” myself. I also don’t want to ‘reset’ any progress I’ve made by moving to another entry level position, but if it gets me on the right path for my career... Conflicted.

Start interviewing now. It'll probably take 3 months to start anyways

ELI5 - Currently work in consulting. Base pay about $250k and last few years have made a cash bonus of approx 30%. Pretty much topped out at the current career level and in the process for a jump to MD. Not expecting that to entail a massive base pay rise but will make things more interesting in terms of equity. Despite the potential promotion seriously contemplating an AWS opportunity. I know recruitment will big up the equity award and base pay is likely to be capped around the 160k mark...
