I’ve been exhausted because I feel like whatever I do I have not been saving as much as my other friends have been (saved up to $15k since start of my career, saved at least 40% every month from my salary). My job transition is really now focused on getting any job that can pay me the highest. And while I’m devastated all of my friends are going to b schools or phds without loans or are landlords already. What are the highest paying jobs right now for a client services person to transition into?

Are all your other friends in the same industry as you? Do you have loans, higher COL, family financial support, or other debts that they do not? Do they have family support coming in?

I guess my point is, please don’t compare yourself to others progress. Everyone has different commitments that affect their financial status.

Barreling down the path of “most money” is ultimately going burn you out mentally as well, as you might pick a job you absolutely hate. And then you’ll be exhausted in that regard.
Also people lie all the time about how much they have saved.

40% of your salary is insanely impressive. Focus on your own accomplishments. Comparison is the thief of joy.

I get that it’s tempting to compare yourself to others. All good advice above but I do it too.

My advice for opening more job opportunities for you is:
- make sure you have a solid resume, meaning you list achievements and measurable impact instead of a laundry list of tasks
- tailor your resume to each job!!!
- cold call your friends at what you think are better firms, learn about what they do and see if you can get a referral from there
- apply to a lot of jobs and be patient. I see people complain about not getting offers after 3-4 months... I personally think if you want to get a significantly better job you should be willing to search for as long as 6-9 months.
- practice interviews
- do research on salary ranges and learn salary negotiation

Otherwise, to make your money go further, invest in the stock markets. SNP has 10% avg annual return since inception. That and compounding is more powerful than you imagine

Yes I just meant the broad equity market. You can also invest in QQQ (which tracks the Nasdaq and is generally higher growth/reward and higher risk).

Hi all! I have been working at an agency for about 7 months now and have already shown lots of growth and development. Not to mention, one of my superior’s told me in a 1-on-1 that they thought I was going to be a lot more junior than I was when they hired me and that I have really impressed them with the work I have been doing. My agency typically does yearly reviews but I feel from comments that have been made that I could be deserving of a raise and/or promotion before then. How do I ask?
