Could you elaborate a little more? Are you asking about a career after sales?

Yup! I don't think I'd move for another 2-3 years but trying to plan ahead and see what I can develop so I don't get stuck purely in sales roles. It seems like a lot of 'exits' are just parallel to sales (e.g. Customer success, sales engineers, sales leaders, sales trainers etc.)

There are sales support kind of roles in BD/Marketing but you may need to take a pay cut depending on your level. Why do you want to leave sales?

Thanks and good luck getting into sales! It has helped me understand the full sales cycle and how important marketing is, so I'd recommend dipping your toes if you get a chance.

In my opinion, the only way out is to move up in leadership/management roles. Other than that, go to trade school!

I think trade school is a last choice for me tbh

I’ve been told by my firm that I need to get a corporate amex card. I’m new to consulting- can I still use my own credit card to get the points and expense that way? If it’s the corporate card can I still get points for it also or does it only go to EYP? Curious to know if a corporate amex is even a good thing or the benefits for it. Thanks!

*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid). I shared my target salary /lateral move & at the negotiation point, they came up slightly by way of qtrly bonus structure but also outlined path for growth incl. expected salary increases at said points. Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??

Interviewed by a FP&A director for a SFA position and they asked me my salary expectations. I couldn’t dodge the question so i gave a range between 110-115k (where i’m currently at as S3 in big4 advisory). They said highest base for the position is around 105k and total comp (base+annual bonus) would likely be 110k. The role focuses on top-line P&L and is pure FP&A (no JE/acctg responsibilities) and good WLB, so i think it’s a good opportunity. If they do give an offer, should i still negotiate?

I moved to US 5 years ago. Intra company transfer. I am fairly successful here however sometimes feel guilty of taking away American job. Why do I feel this? I have unique skill set. I think I deserve it. But stigma of offshor-ing American jobs (conservative media talking points) makes me sad. Thoughts? P.S. I make a lot of money so cheap resource rhetorics don’t apply to me.

When a recruiter contacts you to say “your background is of interest to me” for “a role I have been contracted to fill”, have they actually been specifically contacted by the firm, and maybe should be treated more like a hiring manager who is truly evaluating you? Or are they simply matching you to some posting they can see online and trying to set up a recruiting relationship with you? Fine either way, just want to know.

Please help. I am debating between taking the gre and the gmat. On quant, I scored very high on in practice exams for the gre but the highest I got on on the gmat was 55th percentile. Verbal is the opposite, but the degree to which my quant score on the gmat is low is worse I think than the degree to which my verbal score on the gre is low (if that makes sense). Should I take/report gre? I’m wondering if well-written essays make up for a lower than average (by like 2-4 points) verbal gre score
