I did a similar thing. Had experience but came in at analyst level. Not wanted I wanted at the time but all works out, and I was promoted very fast. Consider making the move even if it’s not the level you want or may feel like a step back. It’s not in the long run.

I am having trouble landing entry level interviews , and having trouble getting past background portions of senior level interviews. I would take an analyst position any day. Money isn’t my concern - rather being in a position that caters to my professional disposition.

Just keep pushing. I started at a small firm, networked my way into Deloitte. Oh my way out in a year or so for an MBA at a top 5 in Chicago, and MBB is the goal after that.

How soon do you tell various work contacts (HR, bosses, coworkers) you’re preg? What’s considered appropriate? Are you supposed to tell HR immediately? Afraid of different treatment / career slowing..

When I was managing consulting projects, I told my teams that they should feel free to communicate with me if they had any issues or concerns. However, I also wanted their ideas about what they would do to solve the issue they are raising.

Situations can get "extreme," or small issues may arise when you are in the heat of the moment trying to accomplish your goals. That's normal.

But to change the pattern and prevent Burnout, you need to communicate with an action.

Hi folks, I am an MBA in finance from one of the new IIMs. I currently work at one of the Big 4. I have always been a jack of all trades kind of person. I can do it all with above-average quality and accuracy in most cases and in some areas I can compete with top lads in the domain.

However, I think what we mean by a career is to choose a domain and keep working in that area until you can be considered an expert.

I am not able to figure it out yet. Continued in comments..
