Switched to industry from audit about 2 months ago and it’s been worse than expected. Made sure to do my due diligence asking about flexibility, work life balance, etc. and everything has been worse than what I was told. Talked to one of my old recruiters and they said this job is already showing red flags this early and should consider getting out before I’m in too deep and can just leave this off my resume. Any experience/advice with this kind of situation?

Did you leave on good terms with your old firm?

What don't you like about it?

This can be happening in public as well. Joined a new team and minimal coaching there. Learned almost everything in a hard/ struggling way.

Learn to stick it out until at least 6 months (maybe?) while looking for something else. What are the red flags?

I’m seeing lots of posts about really bad losses. If you trade you’re going to lose money - hopefully not all the time, but many positions will be mistakes. But you need a process to find ideas and manage positions. Two books you should read are “The New Trading for a Livinng” and “The Laws of Trading.” Both look at psychology, process, and risk in different ways that can help you work out your own process. The next 18 months will be much harder than the last 18 - time to start learning.
