Hey. Was hoping for some insight.
Looking to obtain a role at EY (Senior Exec - Financial Modelling). Currently a Financial Advisor and prior to this had 2 years experience as Financial Analyst. I’m more than confident in my ability to do the role but I just wanted advice on how to get the interview in the first place?
I also currently do not hold ACA/ACCA qualification, is this something EY would sponsor?

I currently have an offer for an accounting position that has a great pay increase from my current position but I’m also in the middle of interviewing and have one last round with another company for a financial analyst position that I would prefer over accounting. However the final rounds won’t be until first week of January due to the holidays. Could anyone give me advice on what to do? The pay for the second position would be slightly higher than my current offer.

Currently working at an old biotech company as a senior financial analyst probably working 5-10 hours a week. Bored as hell but I realize my work life balance is insane. I have been trying to break into tech for so long I have an opportunity at a pre ipo start up that offered me $110k base plus 9000 in options at a 10-15 valuation. Should I leave my cushy old biotech company and go to the start up as their first analyst hire in finance and strategy? Or stay and keep applying to other tech comp?
I am interviewing for a senior financial analyst position and the recruiter says they’re getting ready to make me an offer. I am not very familiar with the company and there’s not a lot of info available about them. Should this be a red flag for me or is it common to jump into an unknown company?

I am a junior and I have ptsd starting my sophomore year of college. My grades have dropped and now that I’m seeing professional help, I feel back on my feet, but now I feel very un confident about my 3.2 GPA and lack of clubs/resume for those 2 years. I’ve been having low confidence in applying to internships because of this issue. I am very unsure on how to explain this to recruiters because of sensitive subjects, so how do I got about it? I really do wish to be a financial analyst someday.

Does anyone know anything about client financial analyst role at Accenture federal? I know someone preparing and it’s a case interview. But not client facing so wanted to see what they’re getting into.
I used a referral to apply to some financial analyst roles. I like how recruiters are willing to personally decline you which opens a dialogue on criticism. I was given resources on improving resumes and interview skills. It seems my resume is in good shape according to the recruiter but I can’t seem to land an interview. Is there anything else left besides a referral and a good resume to get through? I feel like being from the east coast applying to west coast roles is a factor

Seems like the “Financial Analyst” role is just a new title for Accountant.

I'm considering switching from Public Accounting (tax) to industry as a Financial Analyst - is this feasible?

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.

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.
