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?

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!

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.

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.

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'm so frustrated. I've been working for 10 years and I can't get an interview for Senior AD roles, but I get tons of enthusiastic calls for Intermediate ones. Im doing the work of a senior now - concepting alone, working direct with clients, guiding the odd junior - and I do a lot of stuff for the community at large that shows leadership (like conference stuff).
I've had CDs review my book and they say my work is great. Why can't I land a senior job? I want to manage, I have good ideas. WTF?

Hi y’all. So I haven’t technically onboarded for my firm yet, I’m suppose to start in 3 weeks. One of the projects I’m going to be put on requested to have a little interview with people of the team so I had mine today. The “interviewer” didn’t really seem to think I was qualified for this project at the end of the conversation (agree to disagree with him on that). Regardless, am I in trouble for not fitting his criteria/selling myself enough…kinda worried on my manager’s response….

Should I interview for a company if I’m most likely going to turn down an offer if I get one? I had a call with HR as well as a call with the actual manager I’d be working with. They’ve been MIA for three weeks and just now got back to me about another interview. I wasn’t too interested in the role which is why I wasn’t concerned about the time gap (the time gap makes me think they had given someone else an offer) ... currently interviewing with another firm and while I know interviews (cont)

My personal experience in interviewing made me understand that I lacked a lot of things to excel in Interviews although I consider myself good in my work.
If I had to do it again, I will keep interviewing and keep improving portfolio and case studies. Although I will choose companies where I do not want to go first to practice.

How do you stop from going blind in this profession? First year here. I went into law school with “perfect” vision and had to get glasses by the end of it. Since I started working last year, I can barely see without glasses and need to get a new prescription. At this rate I’ll be blind by the time I’m a third year. Is this inevitable?

Been here for almost 3 years now. I am pretty good at this job - clients and teams like me a lot and if I decided to stay could definitely make it work in the long run, but it’s not a job that makes me fulfilled and happy; and increasingly so. Want better hours, less focus on optics, deeper problem solving, slower pace and more ownership over deliverables ( not just slides) - anyone feel similarly and left? How are things on the other side - are you happy/ could you solve for the aforementioned?
