Seems like the “Financial Analyst” role is just a new title for Accountant. I’m on my third interview for a Senior Financial Analyst position but the job description seems to be a mixture of both general accounting activities but also financial statement analysis. Is this a trap? Or is it truly a hybrid finance/accounting role?

I'm considering switching from Public Accounting (tax) to industry as a Financial Analyst - is this feasible? A lot of job postings for Financial Analyst positions ask for knowledge of ERP system, SQL and even coding which I know nothing about. Is it that something that can be learn on the job or should I invest in taking some courses before applying for jobs? How different are these two career paths?

I work as a Financial Analyst for a Mortgage Originator and Servicer. I am trying to make a move to FP&A (preferably tech) as my interest lies there. I know that the responsibilities are different and I am willing to learn. Any advice on how to make my application more competitive while applying? I have networked before with people in FP&A but was not able to get an offer so went for the job I am in currently.

Dont waste your time doing IB and find some other job where you are valued after 5-7 years of experience. I have close to 9 years of experience in IB and I decided to migrate to Canada after that. Now i am facing a common phenomenon in my job applications. Either they say i am over qualified or they say how will I bring Canadian clients. I tried to change course of my career by applying for financial analyst / FP&A role but of no success. IB doesnt teach beyond PPT / Excel. Feel depressed.
