What is a good progression of your employment position if your entry-level post undergrad job is e-commerce management? I personally feel like there is a ceiling in which I can progress as an e-commerce manager for my company and am unsure of how to further my career.

Maybe just gradually moving up the ladder in e-commerce departments? I think you’ll get good experience in the role you’ve accepted and there’s no way you will be completely trapped or limited after working there. People change careers and try new things all the time.

Have you thought of going into business development?

What about something that focuses on customer experience?

All good suggestions! Customer experience or customer success, business development or even account management perhaps

I think CS is a good fit but personally, I would also think about running your own e-commerce business at some point. If you move across different depts, you'll have a pretty deep understanding of what's needed and could probably run your own thing pretty well!

If you got hired at the absolute bottom of the payband, I gave my salary expectations which was unknowingly less than my offer a few months back, is it possible to renegotiate a raise to at least the middle of the payband, come the performance review, raises, and bonus meeting, especially given inflation? In addition my firm’s new base payband for my position as an external higher is posted at 31% higher than my current salary.

Hey there! I work in a mid-size full service agency with a growing marketing team. We currently don't have a CD due to our size and current client portfolio, but that's a role I'd love to step into when the time is right and my management is on board with that. Any advice on how to prepare for that kind of role without changing agencies? Or anyone open to mentoring me? I'd love to learn from a CD or ACD to see what they're doing and what I can bring without leaving my team!

I am currently looking to break into pre sales through a SE role. I’ve gone through a few interviews but am struggling to make traction, I think due to my lack of hard technical skills.

Would love to connect with anyone they may have made a similar transition from management consulting to pre sales. I have 2 years of experience in SaaS sales but that was about 4 years ago. Thanks!

I currently work as a data scientist and was recently contacted about a FAANG product analyst position and encouraged to apply. since I am currently working as a data scientist (non-FAANG) and I feel like going from a data scientist position to a product analyst position is not a lateral move and wouldn’t be a good career move given my skills and experience (Ph.D, advanced stats/ml training). Anyone have any insight into the differences between FAANG DS vs. PA roles?
