I’m currently a staff accountant but I’d like to make the pivot to a financial analyst/FP&A type role in the future. What are some ways I could frame staff accountant duties on a resume for analyst applications? Obviously my variance analysis and preparation of budget items are good starting points, but does anyone have thoughts on this?

Seems like this is a good place to get a reality check on what I am looking for in a position. I am trying to leave my current firm. I am a Senior Tax Accountant. Been the only Senior for a year. Currently make $76k. Had a bonus of $4500 this year. Not sure what the bonus is going to be next year (or if there will be any) since they are moving to a new bonus plan that is supposed to be more "fair and generous" We have a Safe harbor 401k plan. So get an automatic 3% contribution to 401K.
