Quit an awesome job in London to make it in New York
This doesn't sound like much of a 'situation' but it is. Here's where I'm at:
I've got a great job lined up on an asset management grad scheme, due to start in September. Worked my ass off to get it and I'm pretty lucky to have it.
But... it will mean staying in London. My life ambition all the way through uni was to get the hell out of the UK as soon as I graduate. Now I've graduated and I'm still here... tied down by the promise of this job.
I don't think I can be happy living in London. Call it a complex or whatever, but it just isn't the place for me. I want to get out to the US, ideally New York.
How bad are things in the US? Are there jobs? (I'm not a oxbridge / lse grad, far from it)
Am I an idiot to turn down this opportunity and try to make it in America? (first step being acquiring a... no easy feat!) In an unusual display of emotion from a would-be financier, my heart is pulling me that way.
