Consulting

My friend is looking to pivot out of tech and into a more business-y role. Does anyone know of high-quality career coaches that could advise on the landscape of business roles (eg consulting, finance, biz dev, biz ops)?

Tell him to stay in Tech. Way more specialized/niche roles, demand is super high and will only continue to increase, FAANG pay more than IB and Consulting these days.

Agree, it’s getting more and more competitive to get into tech these days and all the nice cushy jobs just go to experienced people who bounce around companies in the industry snagging comp bumps like candy near the checkout line

Agreed. Your friend needs to really consider the changes rippling through consulting and then business world at large. He/she can always pivot to a startup and wear multiple hats that way, but leaving tech (esp if they have perishable technical skills) for business would generally not be a smart move.

I fought this battle for a 3 years. Eventually I gave in and realized tech is part of business and will only become more important.

What do you mean by “fought this battle for 3 years”?

So any coach recommendations out there? I should’ve clarified his role in tech is in sales so no perishable skills/higher-than-consulting salary there...

Would be good to get tips on the role/firm and whether there's a way to match the comp.
