Opportunity to dive deeper and stick around for the long haul. See strategies play out and be executed over years rather than 6-8 week stints. Increase level of ownership. Dive deeper into a specific industry or segment. Learn a transaction strategy in greater detail (e.g., buy and build, turnaround, take private). Work with some of the smartest people in the world.

This all seemed to work for me

@FirstNewYorkSecurities User. How long have you been studying & testing for the CFA?

I am a first year and just started with the firm as an auditor. The more I go through busy season, the more I realize I don’t want to pursue audit. Can someone tell me how I can switch into advisory internally? or if I should just apply externally and leave? Also is it too soon to leave since I’m only a first year, or can I leave right after the busy season? Not sure what to do but don’t want to spend more time at a job I don’t love.
