What's the concensus on designations in the property claims world? Been in the industry 9 years, 2 as a supervisor. Trying to decide if I should chase one or two down. Only want to do it if it will help my career growth though.

I feel like the only prestigious one is the cpcu. The others don’t really seem to do much.. at least from what I’ve seen. Just extra letters 😉

Another thought - you could look into taking different classes through Coursera to help you build a certain skillset that you think might need to continue growing. Sometimes some of the soft skills are more important. Many of the courses can be done for free but there’s a small fee if you want an actual certificate. They offer some mini masters’, too.

Same here… but figured it’s another option that can help you target how/where you grow 🙃

Up to what point is it feasible for an MBB analyst / associate to switch into banking in the US without going the MBA route? How many YoE?

What about in geographies other than the US, anybody got insights?

Thanks!

I currently work in Sales with the intention of moving over to marketing in the near future. I received two offers for BDR/SDR roles from

I like both companies’ software and it extremely hard to decide which position will get me into marketing faster as it is not a traditional BDR path to take.

Help!
