Any opinions on the insurance industry? I have a few interviews for senior accountant roles and am looking for advice.
Anyone have insight into revenue accounting? I’m interviewing for a sr revenue accountant position and wondering if it’ll be too pigeonholed. I also have zero background in this type of accounting so it would be completely new to me, but the hiring manager didn’t seem to mind that I don’t have any experience in this area. I’m fed up with the hours and lack of support in public and want to leave before next busy season for context.
Started looking at jobs in private accounting. I scored interviews for a Staff Accountant, Junior Accountant, and Accounting Assistant. I just finished interviewing for the Staff Accountant position which feels very much like AP/AR and Bank Recs to start, similarly to the other two positions. Does the title matter? I want to be able to grow but at the same time I want to make sure I’m moving up positions in my job search so I’m exposed to harder/higher level work.
advice on switching from Public accounting at a Big four to an industry staff accountant position after only a little more than a year ? I have no desire to become some kind of CFO or CAO. I’ve been interviewing for positions at smaller public accounting firms as well as staff accountant roles in industry. I just want my life back before busy season….
We’re hiring a senior accountant at the tech start up I work at. Most of the people applying have financial services or real estate backgrounds… I’m a little worried about those skills translating to a tech company. I was never in FSI so I’m not sure if areas like rev rec, PPE, capitalized software, etc get much exposure. Thoughts on if this type of background could translate well?
I asked for more money for a senior accountant role and have received a lot of push back. I have been firm with my decision and the recruiter called me today to set up an interview with the CFO. And then threw in the fun fact that there are two other applicants that are willing to take the money offered. Are recruiters always this annoying?
Is it normal to be excited about new jobs, applying, then kinda meh about getting interviews? Not sure if it’s a sign that I should just accept that I’m a public accountant lol.
A2 with 10 months of experience about to interview for a senior accountant role, wish me luck!
I'm having an interview this week. I haven't interviewed for the past 5 years. With the exception of practicing general questions, background research of company, what other advice can y'all give me? Interviewing for a industry senior accountant role. Wish me luck :D
I started interviewing before knowing two other seniors in my engagement leave. Now I have been presented with the opportunity to work as a senior technical accountant at a public company $80-85k. I recently got promoted to senior and although I do have 2.5 years of experience in public accounting the first year was done at a different firm I do not know how much I will be making as an S1 but I hear is in the low $70s. I am debating whether staying another busy season or leave now.
Interviewed and received an offer for regular analyst role and am an S2 at big4 - how do you word an email asking about the possibility to join as senior accountant? Along with negotiating pay
Hi everyone, I kindly ask for suggestions here. I was been referred by my friend to financial service tax in EY.After a call with the MD, he said that my background doesn’t align with theirs because they usually hire Staff1 from campus recruiting, they don’t hire Staff2 and I’m not qualified for Senior1. I am a staff accountant in a local public accounting firm for two and a half years with CPA. Im having a interview with EY recruiter soon! Any suggestions on tax lines? Or tips for interview?
Guys I have a second round interview with an accounting manager at my dream job. Senior Accountant role at a Tech company. I have all weekend to prep. How should I approach this prep? Please help! It’s a pre-IPO company and so there are no public 10-K I can review. Should I review the STAR method? Any advice is welcome. I will do everything in my power to be prepared. Please advise. 🖤
I want to leave public as a senior, but can’t find anything I’m interested in. I’ve been applying;g for manager and assistant controller roles, which has been really difficult. But I don’t really want a senior accountant role. I was thinking FP and A is a good choice. I’m looking for something that has good career progression and a better WLB balance, pay isn’t so important to me. Has anyone else dealt with this? Advice would be greatly appreciated.
Some recruiters are f**king clueless. I made it clear what my salary expectations are and then they try to push me into this staff accountant position paying 60k, which would be a 5k pay cut and I have 2 years exp about to be promoted to senior. Now she's giving me the runaround how I won't get a senior position in industry after I've told her I had interviews for senior positions already paying 85k+

I have accepted a mid size company 6 months contract staff accountant role. However, I will have interviews with couple of large companies by the same week of my start date. My question is, if I’m lucky enough to get the offer, is it bad to leave the contract after a couple of months? I don’t see any legal restrictions.
Trying to exit out of PA as a senior with CPA, and I’m applying to FP&A, Sr. Accountant, and Sr. revenue accountant roles to cast my net wide. When the time comes, I’m not really sure which one I would chose. Nothing particularly interests me, and I’ve just been slowly inching forward in my life without a real direction. I feel like a college applicant again, trying to decide what my major will be. All I know is I’m exhausted and drained from role. How bad is taking a gap in my resume to gather
Anyone familiar with salary in orange county (SoCal) and LA/El Segundo area? Interviewed for a senior accountant role in a public health care industry in Irvine, but their maximum pay is 85K. I thought Irvine should have pretty good pay too but this surprises me. Even a private Healthcare company in El Segundo pays more than that for the same role but with even lesser experience and easier job duties...

Is this salary too low? I'm @ final interview for senior accountant and job posting said $60-65k. Before you say it's too low right away, my experience is on a low end of this of this role. Just 1 year auditer @ national top 10, 6 months intern at same firm, 1 year accounting intern at local private firm, and 2 years doing AP clerk. I'm a licensed CPA and in MCOL. I really want this title for growth but don't want to get stiffed. It's a large corp w/ great benefits.

Seems like the “Financial Analyst” role is just a new title for Accountant. I’m on my third interview for a Senior Financial Analyst position but the job description seems to be a mixture of both general accounting activities but also financial statement analysis. Is this a trap? Or is it truly a hybrid finance/accounting role?
In a process of interviewing for a technical accounting manager job. Hiring manager told me that the position won’t have staff oversight responsibilities. So I feel this is a glorified senior accountant job under a manager title. The raise is decent 20%. Growth opportunity seems to be ok, 2 SM above me, one manager who has more experience, and 2 accountants that the SM oversees. It is technical accounting, so probably doing special projects etc. Should I take the offer?

I feel stuck in my current position. I am contract specific but being early in my legal career (5 years in) I want to expand my knowledge and consider other fields I.e securities, m&a, real estate. Best ideas to learn more on the topics? All job openings I see require experience of course so I feel like I’m stuck. There is also no growth in my current job and I am in one of those “we call you attorney to third parties but won’t actually change your title to attorney” dilemmas... help!
