Only a year into public accounting, but not sure if I can make it another 2-3 years in order to get the better jobs that’s come with more PA experience. Is it best if I suck it up now, hoping that I can find a good job in industry later?

Most times I would say yes but the job market is crazy hot so shoot your shot and see what opportunities you get. You may be surprised what they’ll throw at you now even with only 1 yr experience. If the exit ops don’t meet your expectations then stick it out.

The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person.

Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
