Anyone have any insight on Financial analyst roles that are primarily focused on inventory? I applied for a financial analyst role and it sounds like it’s largely focused on inventory, curious if anyone has experience in a similar role.. thanks!

I’m currently a financial analyst at an ad agency. Coming close to 2years in this role was a intern for 6 months prior at the same agency. I’m realizing I’m not enjoying the work anymore and would like to do something else. I’m looking for more of a analytical role. I’ve been thinking about being a business analyst. Can someone provide tips or advice on transitioning to a BA. Also I’ll take any advice in other roles I can transition to with my background that I may enjoy.
