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.

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...

Curious what timeline I should expect for finding a new position in this covid environment / recession. How long did it take to find a new job this year or how long have you been actively applying? I’m a CPA with big 4 senior tax experience, but trying to change paths to something like finance analyst or business manager (which I know can be pretty broad). Just trying to manage my own expectations for when I’ll be able to say good riddance to public accountings unreasonable expectations

Thoughts on FP&A? I’m currently a senior tax accountant and got asked to the last round of interviews for a senior FP&A position (narrowed down to 2 people). I feel like I’ll get it as I have friends at this company in accounting who put in recommendations for me. Only thing holding me back is I made manager this week and overall like the flexibility of PA, hate busy season though.

Interviewing with a small internal strat team (currently 3 FTEs) led by the CSO. One VP was awesome, Ex MBB really energetic/excited is with 1.5 yrs in tenure. Then interviewed with the other VP and Manager. They weren’t great, overall not quite at the same level as the VP in terms of professionalism and pedigree. They were very tactical and felt more like middle managers without vision. The latter two seem to have grown up in the company (3-4 years)
