Any one make a move from fund admin after big 4 assurance and then was able to make a pivot to a PE fund accounting team? I am considering moving to a fund admin now. Have 9+ years of big four experience. Worried that I can get stuck in fund admin. But I have interviewed at several big name pe shops and make a few rounds on interviews but then get the same feedback that they are worried about my lack of operational experience.

I don’t have that experience to tell you first hand but I know we have hired into our fund accounting team from various fund admins so it’s not unlikely. But I am not part of that team so can’t say exactly what type of experience those people had.

My 3yo who used to sleep through night in separate room has started coming to our bed at 12:30 and sleeps with us. We tried to stop this and she cried at night saying ‘I love you and I want to be with you I don’t want to sleep alone etc.’ we sort of ok/led to this during the holiday season but now feel like she is in the habit of doing this and religiously wakes up and comes over. Have any of you fixed this? How?
