Some of you may find this foolish, but I'm hoping to get some constructive feedback here. Long story short - I recently quit my stable career in IB in a developing country and migrated to a financial hub in a developed country. I was fortunate enough to land a decent job within a short span of time, and I jumped on this first opportunity (running out of unemployment savings quickly), ignoring my dislike/misfit for a mid-tier coverage role for a large bank. I took this role with an objective to quickly learn about the new market and polish some rust (been in last role for 5 yrs as Senior), however I have quickly found myself a misfit in the role, party because of low interest and slow-learning. I have progressively lost focus in the job (been about 6 months now) and the sinking feeling has severely affected my work life balance since I have to put long hours to meet short deadlines. In the last few years, I have been contemplating to move out of banking, and look for opportunities in corporates. However I am not able to have clarity of thought due to burnout and feel the need to reset before I look for alternatives.
Would it be irrational to quit and start looking full time for corpfin/corpdev/strategy roles for corporates? Appreciate your opinions on the approach.
