Main Income:
- New job since May, 75k Euro + 10k Euro stock options

Net Worth:
TOTAL: ~$320k

Now post-MBA, I successfully pivoted my career into something else I really like, living in a new place, and I feel lucky that I got a job during COVID. My net worth is down, both because of no income for 1.5 years, and also various stocks suffering during the pandemic. Still, not bad.

In the end, I feel incredibly fortunate that I got to this position, living abroad, doing something I enjoy everyday, taking advantage of the European lifestyle (a lot of vacation days, cheap weekend trips to different countries), which makes me value the idea of FIRE a little less.

I am not sure where this will leave me regarding investing in Europe and net worth for now, but I do expect large tax returns in the next couple years that will help.

Congratulations on your new job. Would you care to share about your new job and what field did you work while you were in Canada?

Right now, I am working in finance/tech for an international company. Super exciting, a lot of innovation happening. Before that in Canada, I was working for an engineering services company that served heavy industries, really slow moving, with my career plateauing there..

I am on the same boat... I work for a small EPC firm and we are not doing good this year. I am tired of seeing ups and downs every couple of years. I would like to work in the finance industry in future. Any suggestion?

If you are set on finance, an MBA at a finance oriented school may work for you. You mentioned being interested in taking an MBA a couple years ago, it is worth researching what employers hire grads from the schools you are interested in. A low risk first step would be doing your GMAT.
