|Author||Topic: Is there an age barrier?|
I am sorry i am not sure is it ok to post this topic here!
I am a London based Charted Accountant, working in travel industry. I am 23 and thinking of making the career move from accounting to more hard core finance>
My worry is am a slightly old to change my career now?
Would this age factor is an issue for people like me with no pervious finance track record? Coz i wary that i have to start all over again??
All views are welcome>>>
|23 is definitely not old!! Also, fact you are already CA will help make the move easier. If you take a look at some of the jobs on offer, you will see some that are trainee positions for CAs looking to make the move into finance.
Go for it!
Thanks for that, thats really helps.
I am seriously considering of doing the exams in June 2016.
How should i plan my career move?
Should i wait till i finish my level 1 exams and
look for opportunities?
Or should i start fishing for jobs from now onwards?
|If you werent already a CA I would say wait. But given you are then I dont see why you cant go fishing for jobs now.
If you have experience in a certain sector as a CA, then try to find posts for jobs looking for analysts in that sector might make the move easier. I used to work in the telco and media sector as an assistant analyst and they filled the role for a senior telco analyst with someone who had been a CA for a telco company, he had no actual finance experience.
