I talked to a few recruiters about how I want to leave for a financial analyst position and all of them tell me that it’s not likely and that it’s a two step process to get there. They have said I should go with senior accounting roles and then transition after... however that doesn’t seem very convincing to me and I would rather make the move now while I’m still early in my career (first year audit senior). Would appreciate any experiences or advice 😁

Sounds like they’re trying to make a quick bucks off you. Just apply to jobs directly

The recruiters would prefer to place you easily now and place you again in 1-2 years. Don't listen to those recruiters. Either find one willing to help you reach your goals or apply direct...or both.

Don't listen to recruiters. I left as a first year senior to be an FP&A senior. All while recruiters said going into FP&A at all was too difficult. Good luck and keep at it.

I want to understand why was Arthur Anderson kicked out of the audit business. I know they played a major part in the Enron scandal. But still these days we are seeing scandals happening.

Then why didn't Arthur Anderson in accounting and audit business especially what I have learnt that it was largest among the big 5 at that time?
