I made the move and it’s been great. The skill set you need js actually very similar. If you can audit, you can learn any new role. My team expected me to come in knowing nothing, it’s been just fine

Trying to but I feel it is really hard. Financial analysts requires a different skill set.

It’s been great, my role is combined accountant/analyst. I’ve learned so much within few months than I would’ve in Audit.

Where the hell do we apply after 3 years as tech consultants at a big 4? I feel overqualified for a senior analyst position in the industry, but often times under-qualified for the manager level.

It’s almost 4 AM and I have not been able to fall asleep. I have been very anxious for the last 2 months, and have tried journaling, meditation, listening to Tibetan bowls, therapy, etc. I feel frustrated because I have taken the “recommended steps” to deal with anxiety, but still I feel like I am not feeling any better. Have others also felt frustrated at their “lack of progress” in improving their mental health? I want to get better, but it’s just so frustrating. Welcome any motivation.
