You are well compensated for your years and education. Try not to compare yourself with some of these posts/threads about someone with 6 months of experience making $800k. 🙄 There will always be people luckier/better/whatever then you and it will just drive you into depression.

I appreciate those words

I'm applying/attending job interviews for financial analyst type roles in industry from Big4. I don't really have an industry that I'm really passionate about. I'm paranoid that I'll exit and get stuck in a specific industry. Did any of you have issues moving between industries? How did you manage to be competitive or overcome that issue when changing industries? Thanks!
