Works at Grant Thornton 1:

I have, and actually got approval for reimbursement. Haven’t utilized it yet but I think it’s a nice complement to the CPA and could be a transitionary mechanism down the line. Jump to comment

Hey guys ive been at my company for more than 2 years and there is a good work life balance but there is no more growth here. I plan to write the CFE exam next year in May so im wondering whether its a good time to switch right now or after writing my exam?

Applied for a B4 senior forensic role, but was not even granted an interview after my initial phone screen with HR; I’m confused why because i thought they needed bodies.

I'm getting a MAcc to career change to forensic accounting. What opportunities are available to me with a data analytics heavy MAcc? I'm also tacking on 2 graduate certificates in Applied Statistics and International Economic Policy? For those in the field, would that be useful or not useful (i.e. waste of time)? I'm interested in investigations but also analytics, financial modeling, and expert witness services. Throw in salary potential for bonus points. I'll be getting my CPA, CFE, and CAMS.

I’d like to work for the FBI either as a Special Agent or Professional Staff as a Forensic Accountant.
