Looking for some insight. I recently got laid off from a growing SaaS start up. I loved the culture, the product, & the growth opportunities. Ive been a Business Devlopment Rep for a year between this job & my last. My goal was to be an Account Executive but now I’m wondering if that’s what I want. I’ve been in tech in the Bay Area for 2+ years with previous experience in data management. Thinking of rebranding & getting into partner marketing or anything else to get to 6 figures. Thoughts?

What about Business Analyst or Data Analyst. Both are somewhat in line with your experience and background, and both pay six figures at the senior level.


Thanks! Yes Ive thought of that but I think I want to be more front end. I think of my career like dating each step of the way I find the things I like and dislike in hopes to find “the one”

My data management role gave me a technical background which I love. But sales capitalized off my front end skills - trying to find something that will marry the two

With 2 years of experience in SaaS that is very portable in a variety of tech verticals. Consider looking at Cyber Security, HR Tech, and Ad Tech (specifically digital retail ad space as it’s growing vs Social which is shrinking). With the pending economic challenges, marketing dollars are getting cut so a pivot into that space seems risky at the moment.

I accepted a 95k systems engineer role in VA with KBR and is currently going thru a clearance.(MAY START DATE)
Northrop offers me 92k w/ 3k sign on which is 30 min from home in MD for an associate systems role. They also want to give me a clearance but it will start as an interim so I can work sooner than may. MY DILEMMA: Kbr states that they know I need money now so I can accept an offer with Northrop to see if I like it until may.BUT can I have 2 security clearances running at the same time?


Do I take a job at a more boring company that’s a 41% pay increase and comes with 1% equity?

Current company: a fun and exciting fintech startup that’s about to raise a Seed/Series A. Possible to be promoted in the next year with a pay bump (still likely not as much as the job offer)

Potential company: A marketplace that sells used phones online and has been profitable for 5+ years.


I got a verbal offer from a WPP agency today. The role's budgeted salary is 5k less than my desired salary.
The recruiter can get me closer but still not at my desired salary. Otherwise - it would have to go through a long approval process with no guarantee that the salary would even be OK'd.
I'm coming from a small agency, so I could be wrong - but I don't want to sell myself short by accepting the first salary they offer. Do I have any room to negotiate? Or is that risky?


Im looking into transitions into Tech preferably level entry IT specialist/support jobs. Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as what certifications to take and where I can find them? I know I need the A+ certification but there’s so many options

Google is obviously a better brand than my other offer, but I’m not sure if that is enough to make it worth it.

I've been practicing for 7 years. I have a very public interest resume and currently work at a class action plaintiff-side employment litigation firm. I'm tired of litigating and want to go in-house, but I feel that my resume/experience is going to make that really hard. I'd like to go in-house at a university or hospital, something that still feels "public interest" oriented, but I don't have the knowledge of those specialized areas. Looking for advice or similar success stories.
