A1 (about to be A2) and applied for a Senior at another big 4 that required 3 YOE (advisory). Decided to shoot my shot in case. Got my application selected for a phone screen in less than 12 hours from when I applied. Did they miss the fact that I have 1 YOE or are they really considering me?

I work for a great financial institution, and had previous experience going back to 2014. I feel as though I’ve hit my peak here at least in regard to what I can attain for the next 3-4 years in my current location. There are opportunities for advancement if I relocate to Florida or VA but those are pricey places to live. I’m 31 so picking up wouldn’t be so terrible if it means I can make more. Any tips regarding relocating? Should I just stay where I am, or go a different route altogether?Navy Federal Credit Union
