Definitely get a solid recommendation from someone you trust and maybe try a few out with an introductory call to test if you think they are a fit. A past client was getting certified through the Hudson Institute with the goal of doing this full time. I would not trust her to coach my toddler in prep for kindergarten interviews. Point being, certification means nothing. I feel like solid mentoring is more valuable and then working on specific skills like EQ, Executive presentation, etc. through targeted focus.

How's the job market going over there? I've seen more job postings popping up but not being there makes it hard to tell if it's healthy or if you think everyone will be furloughed again.

My (British) partner and I were set to move over in April but delayed because of the pandemic. The visa offices are reopening here next week, so I'll be able to renew my entry vignette and I'll need to provide a travel date and book tickets, but I am working right now and I don't want to risk unemployment

Hello Fishes,

Need your opinion on this, I currently work for NatWest as Operations Analyst with over a year of experience and want to make it to one of the Big4s for the initial years of my career. I have a degree in BBA. What are the potential opportunities I can get considering the details mentioned above.

Why I want to move? Because of super sh*t CTC and growth. Manager with 10 YoE earning 55k, that too after a switch from different organisation.

Your comments would be really appreciated
