Following! I moved from audit to technical accounting 3 years ago and I think I'm going to pivot after a year or less for a more general accounting role. Technical Accounting Manager, Accounting Policy Manager, or Chief Accounting Officer doesn't appeal to me.

Hi everyone! Recently got reached out to interview for a GP stakes analyst position. I find the space rather interesting, but am weary of the exit ops. I would want to go back to B-School in the next year/2 years and eventually transition to traditional PE. IMO the GP stakes position would be a good starting point into understanding investment trends among PE funds, as well as a better understanding the workings of the different departments of the LP (for a potential return). Thoughts?

Job transition question: I recently accepted an offer for a new role with Merrill Lynch, the following day I was fired from my previous employer. I haven’t filled out the updated work history background check info yet. The reason for termination was due to performance expectations not being met. Should I reach out to my new employer and let them know that I’ve been terminated? Should I just put the termination update on the background check form and leave it at that? Wondering what I should do.

One thing I keep having to remind myself is that career mobility is higher than ever. Have gotten several offers at this point from companies that I "kind of like", and have been holding out for the dream companies. But I should probably just take a solid offer elsewhere. It would give me a foundation to build up skills and experience, and continuously applying for jobs while having a solid job is probably a lot less stressful than needing the perfect job before I graduate my MS degree in 2 mo.

My husband has been super supportive of my career, and all this time I thought he was just a really great guy. Now I'm starting to think he just wants to quit working and sit around. Everyday since I told him I'm up for promotion he's asked if I've heard yet.
Also, I told him he has to keep working until his student loans are paid off. So he's trying to get them forgiven since he's in the health industry. Really don't think I can be married to a 30 year old retiree who sits at home all day
