I graduated with my MBA in finance in 2020 and began working at a bank as a Management Trainee. 2 years later, I am an assistant to a financial advisor studying to become a financial advisor. However, I have to do this on MY time and not the bank's.
I am not in a Management position, I make as much as a teacher in a good district and I just don't feel my overall self worth at this job. Does anyone have any advice that can help this situation?

I’m sorry- this is so frustrating! I highly recommend you leave the bank channel, it’s just not going to get you where you want to be. I’d recommend considering an entry level consultant (precursor to advisor) role at Schwab or Fidelity and work your way up from there. These big brokerage firms are desperate for good fresh talent like you and they’ll pay 6 figures with plenty of built in training. Get your money honey!

Switch and find a new career before you get too deep into it. Management trainee doesn’t always translate to management positions.

Reminder to everyone: use your 2021 vacation time. Don’t let it pass you by just because you’re not traveling. Take a long weekend once a month to nap and eat chips in sweat pants all day. We all need to do our part to normalize self care, and sitting at home doing “nothing” is just as worthy of a vacation day as pina coladas on the beach.

Looking for advice! I’ve been in the banking for approximately 10 years in risk/Compliance. I left my role several months ago and I’m having trouble landing a job in the banking sector. Hiring managers say the interviews went great but then crickets. I am feeling that this is no longer for me. Would a career coach help me pivot to another career. I keep falling back to what I know and it’s no longer working. Thanks!
