Anyone here utilized an early professional mortgage? I’ve seen a few banks that offer them to attorneys, CPAs, etc that are looking to buy a home with low down payment.

BBVA does these as well. https://cadencebank.com/personal/mortgages/early-professionals-loan-program

Does EY show the pay scales whenever people get raise? For example - show the high and low range?

Working at Baker as J3. I was hired for arbitration PG but arbitration pg was slow in the past 3 years. So I also managed to get experience doing real estate/compliance/m&a; I was utilized at these practice areas for almost a year (doing minimal arbiration). I want to transition to pure transaction/m&a practice but will not be possible at my current firm. I want to display my past m&a experience without giving a "couldnt fit into arbitation pg" impression. Opinions?
