So I’m 25 and been working for the same HR Technology company for almost 4 years now. I’ve had about 4 promotions. It’s one of the best places to work but I’m realizing since covid motivation has been hard for me. Ive blown my number out each year I’ve been here (160%) However, I feel like with my brains and skills I can do something more challenging. Like operations or something like managing a team. Any suggestions on career changes? OTE 195 (base 85)
