Subject: Easiest Corporate jobs while making six figures

I went tier 3 business tech consulting -> F500 Data analytics -> back office at a hedge fund, doing 'data analytics', which is glorified excel / sql monkey work. I honestly feel that doing my job is intellectually less challenging than learning 7th grade algebra.

The thing is, all the jobs prior to this position, have also been ridiculously mind numbing bitch work. Yet, they're paying me pretty good money..

My pay: 140k base, year end bonus, good 401k match, etc. 7-8 years work experience.

I say that for mediocre students with middling skills and intellect, one great way to make decent money without much hassle or trouble is to do back office work. Such as tech consulting (Accenture, etc) or even accounting at big4 would lead you to six figures with some work experience.

As for me, I am planning on going for mba. Just got my gmat score. (above 700) My reason for wanting to do MBA? Because I feel like my brain is rotting away and I believe I am capable of accomplishing more. I have this burning desire to get the fuck out of back office non sense.

AMA - about this career trajectory, how to get in, or whatever. happy to answer any questions

You literally only need to know how to do a vloopup to make 100k+ at a bank. If you know SQL you are like a god. Lawyers dont even know Excel. In my new role I had to learn it because I manage a lot of non attorneys. There are still fucktons of people whose entire job function could be replaced with a single fucking macro.

This really isn't an exaggeration. Even in inhouse legal departments they run insane amounts of metrics and the data guy makes more than the fucking deal attorney. Of course there are 100 lawyers and 1 data guy but that data guy basically works 4 hours a month for his $300k.

If you walk into any firm that is 20+ years old and scrutinize the entire operation, you will be shocked at how much opportunity for cost savings and automation there is. I think something like 90% of the current white collar workforce in the United States is redundant.

not just for intellectual challenge. I am looking for better 'quality' of work - not just cleaning up dataset and doing bitch work for no meaning. I want to work on projects that have some consequential value to a corporate, from financial or strategy standpoint. a top MBA would enable access to MBB consulting or Ibanking at top tier firms.

but hey, I am more ambitious than your average back office dickhead, who is likely to be entirely removed from an ounce of ambition from my personal experience

Sounds awesome. I'd ask about copping because I can do some of that but everyone has such utter faggot hiring processes I won't even bother. Nevertheless sincere congrats.

I did see a comment on Reddit (lol I know) where someone said knowing MS Access well was enough for a data analyst job. That was encouraging. If I could just get away from places that emphasize "fit" so much that would be better.

yup, as with anything, it's a numbers game. if you have some decent understanding of relational databases, some basic stats knowledge, and strong interviewing skills, you should get something. it may take a while, but you will get it.

this job market is interesting - I've been turned down for jobs paying less than 100k, while sometimes getting offers over 130k, for equivalent positions requiring similar skillset, just at different companies. work on polishing your resume, get in touch with recruiters on linkedin, and see what happens.

how do i go from federal contracting to this? is it as simple as taking some advanced excel and sql courses, maybe building something and passing a "technical" interview somewhere?

yeah. I'd start reaching out to recruiters on linkedin. TONS of data jobs out there nowadays. easily cop 75k+ gigs if you are any decent at interviewing. learn excel, sql, and python. you will get something.

you can't lie about where you worked, but feel free to sugarcoat your resume within reason. say that you worked on xyz data project and helped your organization uncover certain actionable insights as a result of your work, etc. also helps to learn about the industry you are targeting - if you want to do data stuff for pharma for example, learn what's going on in pharma and recent technology trends that many firms are adopting and making profits out of.
