I’m not but just wanted to say to be careful with recruiters. They only get paid when you switch jobs so they’re incentivized to help place you somewhere as quickly as possible. Make sure you do your research about the roles (like you are by asking this Q!) and think hard about what you wanna do!

There was one guy I stopped talking with because he replied “but they are a great company :)” to my list of reasons why I didn’t like what he showed me. Moved on to the next recruiter (there should be plenty in your inbox, there was for me with 2 busy seasons in) and found jobs that actually matched what we discussed.

It depends on the company. Titles aren’t universal unfortunately. I switched to be sr business analyst and I do accounting stuff like preparing Recs and testing controls, researching accounts, etc, but I also do finance stuff like analyzing fluctuations.
