I'm thinking about leaving PA (tax) because of the hours, but I love the work. The industry jobs I see are geared toward auditors and seem really mundane. What other options do I have?

I hope you all have some fun plans for the weekend. How do you usually disconnect to recharge? I will be leaving soon to go chill at home with my husband. Can’t go out on Fridays anymore😁😁

Hi Imad! I recently started at B4, realizing after compliance busy season I’m more interested in audit. Internally transfer doesn’t seem guaranteed and will take at least 6+ months. (Cont.)

Hello! I get emails from recruiters all the time and I never answer. I am happy where I am but I feel like I am approaching that wrong. Should I see what they have to offer? If so, how should I?

I am senior working in Corporate Tax group. I know that I don’t want to be partner but really love the continuous learning aspect of the public accounting. Do I have to move to industry if I don’t ...

Hi! What is your recommendation for a job change after 10 yrs working in a b4? I know I don’t want to become a partner and I feel it’s time for me to leave, but I’m just too scared of burning bridges.

What are careers outside of accounting that you’ve seen CPAs transition to? I sometimes wonder if accounting was not the field for me. I work in risk advisory currently.
