Currently a senior accountant at a small company doing the monthly close financial process. Got two offers, one as a senior cost accountant and one as a senior financial analyst. Both similar comp and at great companies that have 10,000 or more employees. I’ve been wanting to get experience in both cost accounting and financial analysis.

Which role would be the smartest move based off the titles?

Here’s how to withdraw your funds from FTX

Hedge Withdrawals

Open a position on FTX and an opposing position on another exchange (perhaps Binance for the irony) for the same financial exposure. If the position on FTX profits, keep trading. As the position on FTX experiences losses, the opposing position on the other exchange profits. Keep it up until you’ve depleted the funds on account at FTX the close your opposing position. You’ve successfully withdrawn funds using a hedge. You’re welcome.

Does this group also have a non-compete which prevents you from working a second job should you need more money?
