Couldn’t you land a big 4 FDD role? It’ll open a lot more doors into banking for you. Heard of even BB hiring straight out of big 4

Never mind! If you’re coming out of college. That’s a really good move.

How tough is it to break into a FAANG PM role at mid-level if you have less prestigious experience?

I’ve been on hiring committees for RFPs and done reference checks before but nothing else. Do I attempt to move into recruiting or just look for opportunities to build this skill set where I am?

Would you consider Wells Fargo as an exit opportunity? With all the lay offs I’m on the fence with company but they have many openings. What are your thoughts?

Does anyone do extra work for your company that you are not being compensated for? I’m not talking going above and beyond. I joined our newly created ESG committee and instead of just a volunteering role to channel my passion, it has turned into steering ESG strategy. I enjoy it, but we’ve now had the committee for 1+ yr and there’s no sign that it becomes formalized into our “day job” roles or formal acknowledgment. I would be happy with a bottle of champagne at this point. Thoughts?
