SM/D fish, what kind of opportunities are you finding/targeting (including comp)? I have been casually looking for almost two years but haven’t found anything so far. Looking at VP level role in my line of work at Fortune 500 but I’m starting to consider SD role too although some roles feel like it’s a bit of a step back. I really want to exit consulting this year but am a bit discouraged.

How many years of experience do you have? What is your current TC? What is your area of focus (meaning, strategy vs. tech or more specific)

VP in industry is pretty hard to come by and looking at 250k+. Sr. Manager generally exit as Sr. Director and occasionally VP if stars align. Director map to Sr Director and VP. Comp in the industrial is generally lower than Consulting as you are aware of. You will need to get to a VP role to match your comp now. Best to network and join the client as you are a known quality. These positions are not advertised publically. Need to go thought your network or executive search firms. 6-9 month focused search is an average. More so in this economy. Recommand hunkering down a bit in 2021. If somthing comes your way, take a hold of it. Career mobility and options are limited once you get to that level.

So do you know of any reputable “executive search firms”? A few third-party recruiters have my info for executive positions that didn’t pan out, but haven’t worked into the real headhunter league yet. (SM 20+ YOE).

Yeah I think I’m ready to jump on the opportunity even though I may feel like it’s a bit of a step back. This pandemic made me realize my personal happiness matters more than job and comp. I’m in my late 30’s and sometimes it’s difficult to go against someone who has 10-15 more yoe on me and has been there/done that. I don’t really have real operational experience so that counts against me as well. Career is not a spring so at this point I’m ok pivoting and building different type of experiences. Hopefully becoming VP is just around the corner.

I’ve been trying to get a human capital consulting role at Deloitte for a while and haven’t had any luck.

I have almost 6 years of workday experience so I feel like my odds would be better in getting the workday role but I don’t want to end up getting stuck.
