As a B4 assurance manager, what do you choose between assistant controller (let's say, of a hospital system division -- not THE overall assistant controller) or VP Finance/CFO of a small university?

My fiancé is starting her residency in Miami mid June. I was hoping to start looking for jobs there around now. Very hard to find anything. Does anyone here know of any openings?

Should i pass the CPA before exiting. I want to leave PA and probably accounting altogether and look for more of a financial analyst type roll. Would it help get hired or higher salary?

What are some areas I should try to get exposure on if I want to switch to general industry accounting or internal audit (As in SCOTs / process areas)? Is it a problem if I’ve never done certain areas

Is now a bad time to leave the security of public accounting even if my job offer is in accounting in an industry gig? Starting to really overthink this with all the uncertainty out there.

Has anyone used the firm to find a new job? Partners all say to talk with them before quitting, however I’m not sure whether they actually mean it.
