I truly wish I had chosen a different career path. To lose my passion for the only thing I’ve ever truly loved or excelled at (writing) is heartbreaking. I think maybe I should have been an accountant and written on the side.

Working at the corporate level with people who don’t value well-written comms or see them as a part of a solid retention strategy.

And here I am, an accountant who wished he was a writer.

Will look into it👍🏽

What type of writing do you do? Have you considered self publishing or starting your own business centered around writing?

Corporate is not the only path.

Alternatively, if you are seriously considering accounting why not retrain on the side?

If you’d like to setup some time to talk, I help people who are “stuck” and looking for a change every day. Private message me if you’re open to it.

Hello Fishes,

I have a question, What are the possibilities that I can do a job change to Accenture - Reporting/R2R/P2P profile considering I have no prior experience in the same. I am currently associated with RBS as Operations Analyst and having over 18 months of experience.

Since, I am on a contractual role, the main reason for switch is to get a permanent position in a good organization as I want to be free minded in terms of Job Security.
