I have work experience in A/P and A/R and MBA in Finance, I am interested in becoming a Financial Analyst in tech company or consumer goods company. However havent been getting any interviews yet. My question is would it be easier to get staff accountant or accountant job with a firm and request to be moved to financial analyst position as it becomes available? any pointer, criticism, help would be greatly appreciated.

Accountant/Finance Analyst in Chantilly, Virginia

Hey Matt,

Not sure if you have had any luck, but what you asked is exactly how I plan on switching or moving into a financial analyst position. I have four years of accounting under my belt, with a BS in accounting. Companies are now starting to consider me for those positions, but you need to be picky.

Any updates?
