How fast is to fast to move between jobs? I’ve been at my current place almost a year, was an analyst for a year (consulting) and a manager for 1.5 prior to this (Amazon). Total coming upto 4 years experience. To clarify, out of university I wanted to get into finance but didn’t get to where I wanted right away so became an analyst, then worked for Amazon as a manager and am now at a BB in Data Analytics. I would like to get into M&A at some point.
Which companies provide the same perks / benefits / tools regardless of country? Or which companies in the EU have great benefits and realize they need to have competitive comp and benefit packages for talent? I just moved to one of our EU offices after 12 years with the US firm and I’m so disappointed with what’s available locally. It doesn’t even feel like PwC anymore. I won’t be going home to the US for a while, so am starting to look for new opps.
Hey Metafishies! I’m looking for a mentor for pivoting into AR / VR design. I’m a recent grad and Art Director in advertising but I have some translatable skills in UX that have netted me a good amount of student awards - I’m still so early into my career, but I see so much that I want to contribute to in this next advent of human interaction. If anyone has any connections or can chat about this I’d really appreciate it :)
I feel like because I’m quiet, people forget about me. I get hardly any work and get called out in calls for not talking. It’s quite frustrating. Plus because I’m quiet, my manager told me that one of my goals should be to be more vocal, then I can get promoted 🥺
