What level are you currently and if you don’t mind me asking how did you land the senior financial analyst position?

Um not really. I have a background in accounting and I guess having my cpa helps. But imo it’s pretty hard to land finance roles right now in general. Keep pushing though! I’m sure you’ll find what you’re looking for!

I'm thinking about moving from New York to London. I have 7 years of experience at ad agencies. I'm looking at jobs like "marketing manager" at a brand or tech company or hybrid operations/growth roles. I'm not sure I could jump to a biz dev director role in an entirely new market, which is why I'm looking at generalist roles where my experience would count. From an initial search, it seems like London salaries are significantly lower than New York. Any recommendations on how to navigate this?

Something a little more fun that got me thinking - attended a Zoom dinner party with a French guest and an English guest. They asked what typical American dinners are.

What are the two meals you think of first when you think of your families? Definitely interested in anyone who is not American too!
