ever realize that M&A/ ER might not be for you after completing the CFA?

i graduated in 2008 when the job market was horrible, heard that doing the CFA would give you an “edge” so I dove into it without giving it much thought or research. i’ve just completed L2 and slowly began to think that i might not even like doing things like ER… or maybe because i’m so burnt out from studying that i don’t want to touch anything finance related… what i really want to do is get into a government position in my area but they mostly just need accountants so the questions is…to keep going with L3 or to call it quits and go into accounting in september?
