Seeking advice. Been in industry for about 3 years, and I was looking to go back into public for better career growth and learning opportunities with PA. My current employer does not support masters nor getting cpa, but a recent cpa firm I interviewed at said I know longer have the relevant experience to thrive in public as a senior tax associate. Can anyone advise how to successfully transition back into public and what additional skills I should pick up? 4.5 yrs total exp Thanks for input!

Rant: I interviewed at a mid size firm for Senior Tax Associate role and went really well. Partner calls after a couple days to say they want to offer me a job and asked me if I wanted senior 1 or 2. I said senior 2 since I have a years experience as a senior and she was okay with it and discussed salary. She said she will think about the final offer and let me know. A week later she comes back to tell me that my small firm experience probably won’t help much and it would be difficult for me...
