Finance Exit Opportunities

I’ve been trying to move to NYC for a year now, but nothing seems to bite. Is the job market bad or am I just not a good candidate? Looking for mostly real estate/asset management analyst positions

I have 1.5 years in the real estate development and asset management industry. I graduated May 2018, so not much on top of that

I’m curious to see what kind of cover letter your friend sent along with the resume. Would they mind sharing?

Does anyone have a good book or resource on small business retirement plans that also explains the tax implications? Also, an easy tool that compares the options? EG: SEP, Solo 401k, DB plans...

Found out recently that I am not receiving an offer following final round interview at Big4. Recruiter I’ve been in contact with has been a great help and told me afterwards that they’d be more than happy to pass my resume over to other team leads looking to staff. Is this a common occurrence or was it a kind, common courtesy send-off to our time working through the hiring process together?

Why focus on getting promoted to manager before leaving consulting? If you don’t want to be the best at something (I.e. consulting), doesn’t it make sense to make the jump before hand and work your tail off in that new role?
