Anyone else think the "Audit Experience" requirement for FDD roles is overblown?

From my experience talking and working alongside individuals in FDD is that the first year has a steep learning curve and while an Audit background is a nice to have the work you'll be doing is different from Audit.

I would think it would make more sense to bring in an associate sooner rather than wasting another year in Audit when they could already be learning the FDD role.


First gen grad working in Corp America so had to learn stuff like investing from scratch. I deposited funds in my IRA and invested those in some stocks. This was early in my learning journey. I've since learned about Roth IRAs and their tax benefits and would love to convert but I own some stocks that I bought relatively cheap and would hate to sell. Any way for me to convert to Roth while holding my stocks?
