@GT thanks. Lookin for ranges and areas. Estimates not exact figures.

Depends if you're traveling too. If you are, rent and weekend drinks/food/Ubers are pretty much your only expenses

I’m currently a relationship banker for Santander in NYC with 3 years of experience, and will have the opportunity to get promoted into a senior/private banker role soon that pays 70k - 85k, when you include commissions + bonuses.

The problem is that I enjoy working with numbers and doing analytical work more than sales and relationship management.

I’m feeling a bit stuck where I am, so I was wondering if anyone knew a good transition into an analytical role from retail banking?

Any particular segment of sales good for ex-finance? Currently 3 years in at fortune 100 bank on business development side (on commercial loan originations team but no commission/targets at the associate level, basically do credit analysis and build pitch books for the producers) This role has been great as I have gotten both analytical experience and tasted sales experience (I say taste bc I’m not the producer) but would potentially like to transition to a sales role that is less analytical

Tell me you’re ADHD without telling me you are ADHD.

Tomorrow I have 2 interviews: for Market Data Analyst @ CS, and for Client Data Analyst @ AXA XL. I'm currently Junior Managed Operations Analyst @ FIS, with half YOE on this position, and almost a year as Audit Intern @ KPMG. I've decided to apply for those positions as just within those 6 months I've outperformed all of my team members except of 1 witch has over 3 YEO. I don't see more opportunities to grow there.

Good morning!

Still trying to figure out this whole Fishbowl thing, so here goes my first post.

I would love to get into provider credentialing, but all employers I've looked at want at least 3 years of experience. So, I'm looking at Provider Network Coordinator roles, because I'm finding some of those roles don't need AS MUCH experience. I'm a RHIT, and have been working in healthcare for nearly 10 years.

Any input on employers is appreciated!
