Is Client Service a good path for ultimately getting to Sales/Trading? I am in BO

It can be, but try not to fall too far down the relationship management path where you have more sales skills than actual subject matter expertise. If you want to ultimately be in a trading role, a lateral to MO/BO at a smaller firm and working more closely with the front office would be a better idea.

Hi All,
One of my friend is working as Mechanical engg in Tata Motors with 7 yoe have 9 lakh pkg.He wants to come to IT due to tempting pkgs in IT so he did testing course and took fake exp from one consulting and got 2 offers- Infy - 12 Lakh and CTS 14 Lak by showing 3.5 yoe. So he is afraid now whether his fake exp will be caught if he changes the org in future or if client initiates bgv. He is hard working and decided to join CTS.CTS & Infy did his bgv but failed to catch his fake exp.
