Anyone currently working in this field?

Let it be this be a section to keep in touch and probably network.

I have been in this industry for more than a decade (this is practically the only professional job that I know) - it can be stressful sometimes but when you look at it at the end of the day, it is fun. I do operations for a big fund manager based here in Melbourne.

Long hours sometimes but I am lucky the company is very flexible with working hours.

    @glitch88 Hi! Im in the same field. kumusta naman po ang career ni wife ninyo ngayon dyan? we're still planning to move to Au, preferably Sydney..
  • glitch88glitch88 Melbourne, AustraliaPosts: 188Member
    @mafimushkila123 mabuti naman, nakahanap sya ng work after 3 months, pero hindi sa fund accounting field, sa financial reporting sya natangap. :-bd parang mas maraming opportunities sa sydney na related sa field nyo, yun nga lang mas mahal cost of living doon. :D

    Any of you into investing here in AU? What products will you recommend to someone just starting (i.e. ETF, stocks, etc.)?
