Went from 60K > 90K > 165K (Doesn’t include variable comp, base only) within 2 years. Paid 75 bucks for a consultation with a career coach I’d been following on clubhouse. I already had great experience. She gave me advice on what tweaks to make to my resume and how to optimize my LinkedIn and I did the work. Made sure I had a strong elevator pitch in my about me section on LinkedIn that included measurable results with real revenue figures. Recruiters flooded my Inmail inbox. I was averaging 6-7 interviews a week which really helped me exercise that muscle and get comfortable selling myself. By the time I got the call from a FAANG recruiter I was just extremely prepared and already had offers coming in so felt very confident. I also brushed up on my negotiation skills as well because I left a lot of money on the table in my jump from 60 > 90.

@CoachKarie on CH @KarieJHarris on IG. Jarrett is @doctaj on CH.

62k - 115k - 130k. Public policy (great benefits, fulfilling work, abusive/screaming boss) to defense contracting (very cool work, terrible benefits, unethical boss, 80 hour weeks). Third job at Booz hit the sweet spot - great position, great colleagues, decentish money, good wlb (by then I knew my truth worth and how badly underpaid I'd been).

Yeah, it's also 2021 now, this was over 5 years ago. I was definitely underpaid at ACN. But leaving firms isn't worth it for ~20K. It may be worth it for K5 to stick around for their Manager promo depending how their network is and how quickly they could make it, that's all I'm saying. Or if K5 just got promoted, that's when it might be worth a lateral jump understanding promo may take longer.
