So I’m excited I have three pretty solid options 1. Being a trust tax manager at a bank ( I’ve done banking/trust world before) 2. Contract to hire at a private equity firm 3. Staff accountant role at a healthcare company. Thoughts on these options?

1. I have no idea what this is so I'll defer to others. 2. What exactly will you be doing for the PE firm? Back office tax work or...? Also, contract to hire means they can just dump you when it's over. Be careful, ask questions, do research. 3. Healthcare industry accounting is pretty messy and pay usually isn't great. Wouldn't do it unless you like healthcare.

Are there differences in pay/WLB?

like

1. Tax manager at a bank would pay great and WLB uhhh idk could be not as bad as PA but still not 40 hours a week 2. PA firm pay would be mediocre but firm has great WLB. I just don’t know how I feel about contract to hire 3. Accountant at healthcare would pay nothing special and an amazing work life balance

1. No idea 2. No for contract to hire 3. No if it is medical billing related. I would go with 1 or look for more.

like

1. Bank work pays pretty low unless you're talking IB, right? Just be careful here if you're getting into a path that doesn't have growth potential. 2. Sounds like a really good possibility. Issue is that there is no guarantee that you get the full time job. 3. Sounds good if there's a clear path to senior. Probably more stable but slower growth than 2.

1. Pay is between 80k-100k I’m ok with that probably not a ton of growth potential which I’m fine with 2. Agreed, but part of me is like well even if no full time job at the end still looks good on a resume right 3. :) I kinda need to ask more questions about that

What are you solving for? These all sound interesting to me, but I expect we might have different priorities.

Badly I want more WLB PA was a career change for me I thought I wanted to be busy , biggest challenge in life be work ect And I just simply don’t lol maybe that makes me lazy but idk

Hypothetical that I'm trying to quantify for myself. Say I make $100k and feel I can comfortably spend $2k on rent. Assume for arguments sake, I'm happy at this level with savings, social life, etc. I get a raise to $120k. What can I now afford in rent? A) $2.4k. I got a 20% raise, so I can spend 20% more in rent. B) $3.6k. I got a $20k raise, so I can spend $1.6k (rounded) more in rent. C) Somewhere in the middle Traditional thinking tells me A is correct, but it seems conservative.
