Advice on career
 
Hi

I have been failing Singapore CA professional exams. Yes i am ashamed of it.
Was depressed about it as I see my colleagues in big 4 audit 1 by 1 clearing them and getting their chartered title, moving on with their life. As for myself, i see myself not able to make it to manager too..

In the word of accounting profession, it seems like it is compulsory to have a professional qualification to be in line with the job market. An auditor/accountant with none is stuck or perhaps going be tough moving forward. Thus seeking advice if i should attempt:

1. CFA level 1 (probably not able to clear all 3 levels)
2. CPA australia (clearing) + CIMA Strategic Case study (To get CGMA title)
3. CPA australia (clearing) + CIA (To get ceritified internal auditor)

Why not try ACCA

Green not competitive anymore. Same as before 1-3mths.

Current salary range:
A1 - 3k (revised 2019)
A2 - 3.2k
S1 - 4.2k
S2 - 4.7k
AM - 5.2k
M - 6k

They revised A1 pay to attract people, but once people join… there is no retention initiatives. Such a drag, very little appreciation.

If you are able to get into banks, they’ll pay more competitive and reward so much better than audit (talking about good progression, welfare system, knocking off at a fixed timing). Don’t sell yourself out.

even with revised salary it s still ****. if you need to start your career in big 4 audit then you can only blame yourself for not working hard enough
