Recently promoted to senior auditor and I am interested in becoming financial analyst. Can anyone give an advice? Experience, requirement, potential for growth, benefits, etc. What can be a good qualification to develop?

Just do 1 year as senior, get your cpa and start looking. That's all the qualification you need. Use your network, linkedin recruiters and linkedin job postings to search. It's not hard - just takes work.

Yeah totally right. Thank you EY1!!

You don’t even need to be a senior to be a financial analyst. Look for jobs rn or your probably wasting your time. I just landed a financial analyst job at a F100 company with 1 year of experience.

Make sure to highlight any analytical things you have done in your job even if that’s not what you do 100% of the time. You HAVE TO tailor your resume to the specific job description you’re looking at. If you’re trying to go into a financial analyst position they don’t care that you ticked and tied support, but they would care about the quarterly flux analysis you completed for a $6 B publicly traded company. Feel free to DM me

Have others found it hard to transition from Audit to Financial Analyst? All the recruiters I’m meeting with are telling me I probably won’t get an interview since they’re looking for someone who’s ready to hit the ground running.
It’s discouraging because I’m a fast learner, and from talking to my friends who are Financial Analysts, it doesn’t seem like what we do is so dissimilar.

Not here to start a comp debate - family who works for the gov says they will match current salary. Any advice?
