Has anyone taken a finance job after Public and then regretted not staying in an accounting role? I’m interviewing with the same company for a senior finance analyst and senior financial accounting analyst positions. The finance one seems more interesting, but I also feel that accounting is a specialty that I shouldn’t give up.

Recruiter wouldn’t give range for analyst role at tech company role based in New York 😟 when asked she just said it would be base plus equity and to consider New York COL when giving range. Not sure how to approach in follow-up. Should I highball and ask if it’s within their allocated range for the role? Or something else?

I’m a business analyst L2 at a fin tech company in Miami. I have about 5.5 years experience. My base is 75K and bonus is about 10%. I suspect I may be underpaid but not sure. Before this job my experience was not directly in business analysis but transferable financial experience. My title is business analysis but I’m doing more consulting and implementation work than a true SDLC business analysis type role. What do you think? Am I underpaid? And if so, by how much?

Started a new job a month ago at a local marketing and analytics firm as a business analyst. I feel like it’s not a culture fit, but had the revelation I hate being a business analyst. I applied to a enterprise systems analyst role at a university as a long shot and they want to have an interview. It would allow me to learn about new technology but take on more of a team lead role which I’m also unsure about. My ultimate goal is to become more technical but it seems like a way too visible role!

Have the opportunity to switch jobs 3 months out of school to a role that has considerably higher compensation (better base, better bonus, good growth) but in a very niche space.  It is a space I'm interested in but I'm worried that after a few years I may get stuck if I really end up not liking it. Should I stay in a more general consulting role since Im young to explore different spaces (currently analyst in ACN Strat) or just make the jump? This feels like a huge life decision for me.

Job searching and struggling to answer the difference between my last role (Market Analyst) and roles I'm applying to (Data Analyst). I was let go from my last job due to performance issues so hiring managers seem to be skeptical of my work capabilities, which is understandable. I tell them my managers felt the last job wasn't a good fit but struggle to talk about my last job without making it sound the same. How can I spin my answer?

Moreso sharing my story than an earnest ask, I feel compelled to share: I got my job via a series of lucky coincidences. I am a former art student who winded up working for the print production dept of a major media company in what was supposed to be a weeklong gig, and then ended up as a data analyst in the same org. When I think of what I would be passionate for, I think of a creative field, like fashion, even if I was a similar, administrative role. I’m not sure there’s room to grow here.
