As someone currently in the process... do not go for the Cfa just to "get a deeper understanding of the numbers"

I know a guy that did it, but he was only doing it cuz he didnt really have any hobbies. If you want to know the numbers better I’d suggest just reading finance books as that’s really what the CFA is. Saves you on money and stress.

Первый смартфон Mi1 был анонсирован в августе 2011 года. Он поставлялся со встроенной прошивкой MIUI, основанной на Android, совмещающей фирменные стили Samsung TouchWiz и Apple iOS. Также существовала версия устройства с чистым Android. В августе 2012 года Xiaomi анонсировала смартфон Mi2. В нём был процессор Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064, 1.5 GHz четырёхъядерный чип Krait с 2 ГБ ОЗУ и графический процессор Adreno 320. 24 сентября 2013 компания объявила о продаже более 10 миллионов устройств Mi2 в течение 11 месяцев. Некоторые устройства Xiaomi производятся на заводах Foxconn, где производятся Apple iPhone и iPad. 5 сентября 2013 CEO Лэй Цзюнь объявил о планах запуска 3D-телевизора под управлением ОС Android с диагональю 47 дюймов, который будет собираться на заводе корпорации Wistron на Тайване.

So I'm super bummed cuz I thought I did amazing in my interview with KPMG but it seems like I got ghosted... I sent a thank you note, and a couple days later I sent a follow up email asking where my application was at in the process (already had a few interviews) and nothing. I was really hoping to get the job because I want to leave my job rn and this position seemed to be a perfect fit for me so it sucks that it seems like I didn't get it...
