Fuck it. Send that shit


Do first, ask questions later.


(Don't actually do that, clear it with your leadership first)


As in switching verticals? Horizontal? Switching out of advisory vs assurance? Quite a few extra factors

Literally just had a friend at PwC just shoot a few emails and switched like that

Switching from risk assurance to almost the same role in IFS

IFS? Where all the supposed layoffs are??

Sounds like a client facing role to an internal role with less pay...think through that.

Path 1: stay in my current role and jump straight to a PMM ( I am trying but this is a tougher road. I’m not getting any calls back)

Path 2: take a PMM type role in a SaaS or startup than jump to a bigger tech firm in 3-5 years
