I am considering leaving my current role in spite of not having an offer lined up and, prior to doing so, wanted to get feedback from the broader group.
For context, I am currently a 1st year analyst working in a back-office function at a BB. Prior to accepting my current role, I had received an offer in IB from a local, lower middle-market firm, however I ultimately turned it down as, at the time, I was confident that I would be able to exercise mobility. Fast forward a year and I am miserable in my current role. Though I genuinely enjoy the people I work with, I have no interest in the work being done within our group and have not further refined any transferable technical skills.
As for my current finances, I did relatively well for myself in undergrad trading derivatives (equity options and index futures) and managing a long-only, equity portfolio and thus have ~$80k in my portfolio. Though I, in no way, want to burn cash from my 'savings,' at this point I dread going to work every morning and leaving would allow me recruit full-time.
Understandably, this is not the ideal situation - my roommates say it's stupid (I don't disagree) but I wanted to get an outside perspective.
