Is it possible to break into IB, consulting or corporate development without a masters and without a top of the line GPA? I know I can handle the work it’s just the matter of receiving the opportunity to do so

I networked my ass off to get my shot in high finance. To get started just join your local CFA society. Take the level 1 at least once and goto as many luncheons as possible. Any even they have you make it and network.

CFA is def a shortcut in.

Just a question for those here. What does anyone see as a job outlook for a pharmacy technician that has 15 years of experience and is studying for the CPhT? I would like to return to 100% remote work and, understandably, most job postings that are about my caliber are requiring the cert. I am thinking of possibly pivoting into an IT job that would be fully remote later on down the road, but I’m interested in seeing what is possible now (and an average pay) for someone with my experience.

Hey! I’ve spent the last 4 years working on the “product team” for a large toxic corporation. I want to gauge if my scenario is unique or if this is how other companies operate PMs/POs/SMs before I rage quit and go somewhere else. I am a product owner and scrum master for 3 agile teams. It’s been this way for years. I make $95k. I am literally the only scrum master in the company and 1 of 2 product owners. There is also no product management team so I assume a lot of those duties as well. Help!
