My son wants to study the same as me, he is only 12 years old, but he has an immense love for biology. In spite of how flattered I feel I can't stop thinking how difficult it is to find a stable job in this profession, is it time to talk about it, or do I wait for a little longer?

Any one make a move from fund admin after big 4 assurance and then was able to make a pivot to a PE fund accounting team? I am considering moving to a fund admin now. Have 9+ years of big four experience. Worried that I can get stuck in fund admin. But I have interviewed at several big name pe shops and make a few rounds on interviews but then get the same feedback that they are worried about my lack of operational experience.

Joined a B4 from another B4 a year ago, and I average about 70 hours of screen time a week. I don’t log off before 11:30-midnight Monday-thursday, and it’s been this way since I’ve started. My entire team is workaholics and see no issue with this, but when comparing my utilization to my peers mine is 20-40% higher than almost everyone. My “coach” is also my engagement leader. How do I go about raising my hand that I’m beyond burnt out if I don’t feel comfortable going to my “coach”? In FDD btw

Okay so, its been a while since I've been seeing this in Linkedin:
The Job requirement says its Entry Level, but the experience it requires is always 6 year+... like how would a fresher match that.. should I've started coding at 6th grade or what?

I understand that it's a way of "SEO" in LinkedIn but it just discourages us freshies.
