We can't tell whats best for you. That question is mostly on you. What do you want to do? What are your goals? Go out and explore, interview, and think about what you'd want to do. Once you figure it out seek advice on how to make it happen.

Best case fund accountant at a fund. Probability is a fund accountant at a large Fund Admin

At staff and senior level you can do anything. Trust me.

I know a couple people that switched to I banking as staff2/sr

Fund accounting can be great but you should better plan for a career in that space. Since fund is highly specialized it can be a less desirable skill set elsewhere. However, should that be your passion, then that would be a great move!

Stick it out until senior and I can get you the role of your dreams.

Hi All, I worked for 4 months at some agency as a full time, due to personal reasons I had to leave that job. After a month I joined another agency where I’m currently working/furloughed. In resume I do not mention that job where I worked for 4 months due to obvious reasons. Can any new potential employer find out that 4months I hid and covered under previous employment? Please advise, I’m scared as I’m not getting any offers despite interviewed at several organizations.
