Looking to move from consulting to chill DS/analytics role. Don’t care too much about TC ($150k is fine), but WLB is paramount for me. Anyone have any thoughts as to where I can get this?
I recently graduated with a bachelors in finance, and have recently got hired (5 months ago) as a financial analyst. Realistically I do FP&A for a company. I have realized I am not a huge fan of doing non stop spreadsheet all day. Am thinking I’d enjoy my career more by becoming a financial planner and getting my CFP certification. Maybe in the future opening up my own firm. Any advice on what career move to make next in order to accomplish this? CFP requires 3 years of relative experience.
What was your experience while job switch? I understand when you got your first offer letter that was definitely happy moment but after that? While serving notice period? Was there any anxiety? Tension?
“Reflecting on and adopting the use of micro-affirmations would be a positive strategy to prevent microaggressions. Micro-affirmations are small acts that foster inclusion, listening, comfort and support for people who may feel isolated or invisible in their environment. Focus on action, not avoidance – create new good behaviours.”
Just received an offer where there is some travel to be expected. Once a month for 48 hours after the first 4 months (could be zero travel if client accepts to do it remotely). I’m quite excited about the new job. But I’m worried about those potential travel days. How do the traveling moms manage? I have a 1.5YO and a 3YO. My husband can manage but he’s already pissed off at the idea of having to. Going back into an office and now travel, is a double whammy for him.
