I went audit m1 -> fdd short stint -> fp&a manager. Definitely a doable path even if the time in fdd is brief

EY 1 how was your role in FDD similar and different as compared to FP&A?

Have you put in much effort yet trying to make the jump to FPA directly from your current role? I would think that transition is pretty doable without taking a detour back to public, but FDD to FP&A is a pretty common exit (have had four team members leave for FPA roles in the past year).

Yes. Not too much luck with it so far.

Dear recruiters - put your comp range in the email if you want a response. The Salesforce market is just so competitive that I’m sure just like all of you, I get dozens of inquiries a week. It just feels like a waste of everyone’s time if I don’t know what it is. Now that I’m actively looking it’s just hard to see where to start!
