So I was laid off 2 months ago due to the company not doing great, now I’ve been interviewing and finally received a job offer. The dilemma is that there are a few other companies I’m in late stages with that have better comp/benefits/PTO/value alignment. Have you ever accepted an offer since you need the money and insurance and still continued interviewing? Ethically, I feel wrong, like I’m “cheating” if I accept and still entertain other roles. What would you do?

Senior Financial Analyst
I found myself in the job market after a layoff in March and have been diligently looking for new opportunities since. With a solid six-year background as a Senior Financial Analyst and Consultant, complemented by PMP and Scrum Master certifications, I bring a wealth of expertise to the table. However, the current job market is notably competitive. I’m curious if others are experiencing similar challenges in finding employment.

My highlight was the wonderful individuals that I had the chance to work with. There's also an unparalleled ability to grow into your role and take on new responsibilities.
If you're relatively new to the industry, this role can be a lot to handle. A word of advice is to enter this firm with a strong knowledge base and experience. You will need it.

If you’re looking for an environment where you have the opportunity to be challenged, this is the place for you. This isn’t the place for you if you are a wallflower. Everyone is given the opportunity to stand on their own and stand out, it’s up to you to prove yourself.
Again, not suitable for portfolio managers seeking an easy time. Expectations are high here – it isn't that they don't let you make mistakes, but there are expectations that people come on board with a high work ethic and an ability to keep on top of research and implement it.

The value you gain from the experience at Anson Funds is, from my perspective, unparalleled. The firm offers a rewarding opportunity where you actively participate in responsibilities similar to those of portfolio managers and analysts. Collaborative teamwork is a cornerstone, extending all the way up to senior leadership, which provides encouragement and mentorship.
This internship demands proactive engagement and you will be expected to work long hours during certain times of the year.

I had a fantastic experience connecting with the people here. The team was welcoming and friendly. As an internship, it provided a good learning experience.
I have no complaints at all.

I found that the team culture was very conducive to the work that we do. While you do work independently, the company morale was positive and we were all there for each other. I was generally pretty happy while I was here.
It’s challenging work and deadlines are unforgiving, so you have to be able to multitask.

If you need to get real experience in finance, starting off at a firm like Anson is vital. To be honest, I learned ten times more interning at this firm for a couple months than what I learned at business school. Well worth the time.
You have to be able to work independently.

You have the opportunity to learn from senior members in a collaborative way which I found incredibly valuable.
It’s challenging work for a new intern and it can be pretty intense, just do your best not to get overwhelmed.

You aren't going to have your hand held here but the experience is by far worth it. The intern experience is incredibly rewarding because you are effectively able to do the same work that portfolio managers and/or analysts are doing. The team is incredibly vested in your growth and wants you to do well. The team works together collaboratively and even the senior leadership is encouraging.
This isn't for interns who want to coast. You're expected to make an impact.

if you’re going to work in finance, you need hands-on experience, plain and simple. I was looking for that kind of experience at Anson and that’s exactly what I got. The team here is professional, but their expectation is that you can handle responsibility and manage the work assigned to you. Everything considered, you get out what you put in. If you’re dedicated to the work here, you’re going to get the experience you need for your career.
Hours can be long at times

I really enjoyed the people. Everyone was so friendly. For my first internship experience, I thought it was great, would recommend for anyone looking for real life experience. Rate the CeO as thumbs up!!!
