Generally the fact that I'm destined to deliver a careers worth of poorly designed decks because I chose to work in media and god forbid every.single.detail of the plan isn't on whatever slide the client happens to be looking at

I just graduated 1.5yrs ago, but have gratefully made my way into a Sr. Accountant position at a ~120 saas company managing books, p&ls, 606 rev recs, powerbi analytics, & all things finance for our 20MM of revenue. I feel like I’ve already reached my growth limit here and the next position up is my boss’s CFO position. I’m trying to break into big tech as a fin. analyst or rev rec specialist, but they always want someone with more experience. What should I do / any recommendations? 70k comp.

This isn’t really a question, but competent female leaders, what kind of witchcraft magic are you studying to come off so damn poised and self assured in meetings? I just met with a new manager (a woman), and I admire her whole VIBE so much! The confidence! The authenticity! I love it!

Urgh, women leaders are the best. 😭 💖

Out of Brit, US and Australia, which country is the easiest to move to and work as a mid level creative with no awards (yet) if you’re not a citizen or resident of any of them? Not right now of course. I’m tired of where I am and want to do more in a market that lends itself to “more creative” work. Look, I know it’s probably not even worth considering or it will never happen BUT if I were dead set on moving for work, which would be the easiest from anyone who has experience moving for work too?
