An investor relations associate at a large venture capital firm with a clearly defined career ladder can advance to the position of IR manager, and then IR director. Those with exceptional financial knowledge and experience could become partners at the firm. At smaller firms, there may be only one investor relations professional, and advancement is more difficult. Some IR professionals transition into jobs as public relations and marketing managers with corporations, or they work for government agencies and nonprofits. Others become financial controllers or chief financial officers.
