Seems like the “Financial Analyst” role is just a new title for Accountant. I’m on my third interview for a Senior Financial Analyst position but the job description seems to be a mixture of both general accounting activities but also financial statement analysis. Is this a trap? Or is it truly a hybrid finance/accounting role?

It’s usually a trap. What’s the job description?

like

I don’t mind doing a hybrid as accounting is where my skill set is (bachelors and masters in accounting). However, I don’t want the job to be 100% accounting I want to perform analysis and forecasting as well.

I have been on so many “Financial Analyst” interviews and they were ALL accounting. Freaking trap.
