Resign to study for L3?
Undergrad and master’s in engineering
Completed MBA at a non-target and switched to strategy/corp dev - 6 years
Currently working ridiculous hours as a glorified accountant in FP&A
Have a family with young children I don’t see enough of
Passed L2 June 2019
Ultimate goal is to get into portfolio management. If I pass L3 in June, I’ll have the charter locked in because my experience is already in place. I don’t anticipate having enough time to work at my current role + study for the exam.
Resign and study until June, then try to find a role in the industry (Dallas)
Try to get an industry role like equity research now that will parlay into portfolio management. Hopefully L2 is enough to at least get a foot in the door.
Thoughts? Advice? I’m really sick of wasting my nights and weekends in a role that I don’t give a **** about. Also, I’m concerned about the hours required in ER and PM. Are they typically insane? If so, maybe becoming an advisor would be a better fit.
Study together. Pass together.
