Ask me two months later, just got an offer as a financial analyst. The longer I stay, the more I feel I am just not into tax

@t sa1, slipped through this message before! I did both. Before landing a desired role, plenty of practice needed. Besides friends referral, I also reached out to company recruiter through LinkedIn once I see a new role posted. While in job hunting, keep learning and adjust your mentality. Rejection is a hard lesson that could still be beneficial if you learn from it. Hope u make the smooth transition soon!

Georgia Tech Online Masters of Science in Analytics ($10K) or MIT Masters of Science in Business Analytics ($65K). Self funded. Georgia Tech would be part time (current salary is $100K). Obviously MIT is a better name, but debating whether the brand and exit is worth the full opportunity cost of $265K vs $10K
