Hello industry folks, really need your career advice - YOE 4.5, CTC - 6.4 LPA, ICICI Recently transitioned from an operations role to Product Manager role. Got a new opportunity with Infosys as Senior Associate Consultant Banking Domain for 11LPA+1L Joining Bonus. Now, as I transitioned to PM role, there are tons of opportunities to learn and grow, however, CTC and hikes are meagre. Whereas, with the new opportunity, CTC is good, but cant figure out what career would be in Infosys and after.

Just spoke to someone who landed an interview at their dream company. They didn’t get it through applying. Here’s what they did instead: 1. They studied the job post. 2. They identified that the reason for the hire was to generate more company revenue. 3. They connected the company to a few potential customers by doing a quick looking through their network and messaging warm contacts. Unsurprised they got an interview out of it. Whats the best way you’ve seen someone land an interview?
