Has anyone taken classes in valuations and received some kind of credential with just an EA? After a bit of a detour I’m getting my EA this year. I‘ve looked in to a few options, like the CVA, but it looks like I’d have to go to business school or become a CPA. I’m not against either but I don’t feel ready to apply to schools just yet. Wondering if anyone has taken a similarly unconventional route in their careers.
Has anyone tried getting their CVA? If so, what was your experience like (besides awful I am sure)? Looking to sit for it once I return to the states.
Does Big4 hire ACCA individuals from international countries (they will not need visa sponsorship and would be legally authorized to work in USA).
Repost for more responses. What do you think is more valuable for federal or commercial consulting: cyber security certification or data analytics certification? Really interested in both.

Do any of y'all's firms have MBA networks? Considering starting one at my firm, but curious if this is a thing elsewhere. Thinking it could be a valuable resource for advice/networking/programming, etc. for employees considering an MBA program.

Currently making ~350k at a IB. Will be going back for my mba to transition into consulting. I’ve checked management consulted so familiar with post mba TC, but my question is how long will it take to get back up to 300k at each of your firms?
If anyone wants to study for the CFE but doesn’t want to pay the full price for the study materials and would be interested to split it, please DM me
Has anyone seen or discussed this Petition for SHRM must support Black Lives Matter & the LGBTQ community? I’ve grown increasingly concerned and disappointed in SHRM’s lack of vocal support for employment protections for LGBTQ+ and black and brown workers, especially as a black woman in HR. It seems like SHRM is overly focused on what is absolutely “legal” and not what is right. I’m of the opinion HR professionals must not only be “legal” but have a relevant and compassionate stance

PSA: reminder to schedule a day or two off in the upcoming weeks for a 4 day weekend (heck maybe even an entire week). It can do wonders for alleviating stress. Today I’ve gotten my oil changed, taken my dog to the vet, cleaned up my unibrow & have a facial scheduled. The rest of my day will be applying to jobs. I’ve only checked my email once and it feels so ridiculously good not to be tied to a laptop Monday morning. Take that time off ladies!

Is anyone else also tired of applying, interviewing, being ghosted, getting offers lower than what you are currently making, etc? Is it taking a mental toll on you? What would you do now- give up, take a break, grow your current role, etc?
Is it normal to be hired for a niche skillset for a specific project and then laid off because they couldn’t find another project for you? Is it your fault for being too niche or the sales guys for

I just started a new project 2 weeks ago and just found out it’s a train wreck. I am set up to fail already! No training and a lot of soft lies to client by Senior managers leading. I’m a manager, can I just ask to roll off? How does this affect my job security?
