I graduated from BBA, majoring in Econ from a reputable local university. I have 5 yrs of working experience. I am assisting my boss in handling investor relations of my company. My company is a listed blue-chip property developer. I have been working in my current position for more than 3 years. I would like to change my workplace as i found i can be hardly advanced in my current position.
I had interviews with several companies but failed. When the interviewers asked me the reason to leave my current job, i don't know if my answer looks appropriate. I usually told them that i want to take more responsibilities. I do not have any professional qualifications like CPA, ACCA, etc. I wonder whether the reason for my failure felt more to my qualifications or my presentation skills during the interviews.
My concern is that whether i should pursue an accounting diploma or ACCA so that i could obtain a higher role in investor relations? However, i am assigned to more admin role rather than analytical role now. My career in this company stop at this. Even i got changed to a higher title, my responsibilities are the same. Should i consider to switch after i obtain a diploma / ACCA, not now?
I'm sorry that my message is not well organised but i do hope i can get some advise.
