Go to IB for 1 year then move there. It’s easier. Or just network hard

Lmao interned in IB before FP&A I will pass

I have a couple ideas, but this is more from personal experience and what's worked for me and my colleagues. Are there roles within your company that are like or similar to what you are looking for? If so, talk to your manager and see if you could spend a day or two with the department and while you're there, get to know the team and the management. Discuss with them what they are looking for, and next steps to get there. If not, perhaps try to get some type of formal education in that role and keep your linked in on casually browsing and only include that role. It may take a while If you want to find a a good fit and the pay you want, but definitely don't put the green "looking" banner on your profile or anything.

Networking is key. But if you are trying to enter the startup world be prepared to continue doing FP&A work. as well handling anything else that has a number in front of it. Many hats to wear

What are the chances the ex-Deloitte SM tells the partner and vetos my hire at the tech exit out of respect for their friend?

A question for recruiters. When you call someone asking them if they are interested in an opportunity and then ask them for a technical interview the next day and they ask for an extension does it impact their application? Recently it has happened to me twice that recruiter calls, he has my details and asks if I’m interested and then ask for same day or next day interview. And when I apologize since I actually have job to take care as well they just ghost me. Is this something that’s normal?
