Hello Fellow Monkeys and Happy New Year,
I am 24 with an undergrad in Econ and a MBA from non targets, happily landed my 1st job 4 months ago as a Financial Analyst right outside Philadelphia. I work for a smaller Audit and Recovery firm on the rise (company more than double over past two years and was recently purchased by
Now I do enjoy the work I do however this is not a very typical FA job, mainly because I am the 1st FA hired by the company so it’s more of a starter/feel position for the company, basically they are not quite sure what they want me to do overtime. Data research, forecasting, and model building make up about 1/3 - 1/2 of my work while the rest is a variety of things. I am very grateful I landed this job which I do enjoy) however I have been searching around in hopes to do more analytical work and make a higher salary (45K as of now, which I understand is on the lower end for FA). I have been searching around such as , , , , EBay (GSI Commerce), Campbell Soup and others in my area
My real question is how short is too short to leave a job without it looking like you are just job jumping? Or will having some experience now with my MBA be something bigger companies look for?
Thanks in advance!
