Maybe try wording it differently when asked why you are looking to leave. Try to spin it to a positive of why you're looking for new opportunities, not that you're unhappy but maybe something like "it doesn't have the variety I was looking for and challenging areas on a more recurring basis but I think this [insert position interviewing for] could offer me these things." You don't have to put it that was necessarily but try to put a more positive spin so it doesn't seem so bad of why you are wanting out after a year.

MBA?

Lol thank you- I feel like a loser!

I was thinking that @PWC but I've only been out working for one year- most reputable schools want two years experience! Especially for executive MBA- I don't want to stop working

That's what I was trying to say @EY1 I feel like a loser not user

It's really hard to find a job outside PA

So what's the question?

AML is actually a good background for big banks. If you can pick up the connection to tax information reporting and withholding with AML it's a really big issue item for banks.

Lay down and rot

See if you can switch to another group in house for different experience. Maybe HR? Otherwise the MBA route is probably your best Segway.

Thank you @Grant Thornton- at least I know I'm not alone loL

AML is an indefinite prison sentence. Once you have the label, you're labeled for life
