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?

How common is it for recruiters to misrepresent jobs to people like us? I had one sell me on a senior financial analyst role and was super pumped about it. Later last night was digging and come to find out it’s a SEC Reporting Analyst role, nothing like what I want and the duties are totally different.

Which would be better? The first will def pay better but afraid of being pigeonholed into fund accounting and lack of exit opps. Finance Manager at a top VC (review accounting work that is outsourced and help finance team as needed) Senior Financial Analyst (FP&A) at a private SAAS company. Thank you all in advance!

Is a MBA worth it if I don't want to go into High Finance or MBB? Currently a Senior Financial Analyst from CA making a little under $90k (not in Bay Area). Im 25, a minority, and married (if that matters). Aiming to get into a finance position at a Tech company (FAANGT or other Big Tech). Contemplating if I should just continue studying for the CPA exam or ditch it to focus on GMAT and apply to B-School. I was also considering a Masters in Business Analytics as well. Very confused
