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 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 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.

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