For those who have successfully made a career pivot into a new field, is it recommended to apply for the equivalent title in the new field (i.e. Senior to Senior) or is it more effective to apply for a title that is a step back from your current role (i.e. Senior to Junior)? I’ve heard arguments supporting either strategy but am interested in hearing about the personal successes that people have had.

Have worked past 3 years at a buy side HY credit shop. Great role out of school with solid WL balance but proven difficult to transition into some strategic finance roles without banking experience. Have come across a small bank in NYC, spoken to the entire team (all incredibly nice), and seems to provide great access to founders (deals <$100mm) but the banking hours worry me. What parts am I overlooking? Can you truly find a way to move to the city with a banking job and still enjoy your life?

I have family visiting and requested about a month ago for a few days off after Christmas but it wasn’t granted since my other teammate has that time off. The main client we bill to has the entire season off so I’m not sure why I wasn’t given off. I indirectly let my manager know and was advised to hash it out with my team. How would you approach this?
