What else should I be doing as a Tax Staff 1 to eventually transfer into an M&A/advisory service line? I got lucky my first year and was placed on a brutally difficult PE client that had tons of M&A activity. Great reviews. I am studying for the GMAT now and going to be applying to B-School in 3 yrs. So I’d like to be in the line of work before I apply..

My GF is interviewing for a role she’s really excited about. She met with the hiring manager yesterday, and said she felt it went pretty well (the hiring manager told her after the interview that he has 4 other folks to interview and then he’ll get back to her). She sent an update/thank you note to the executive recruiter this morning and got this reply. Does the note portend good or bad news? She’s worked up like crazy.

I spent 15 years in industry, last 3 in consulting. I feel like I’m a generalist now instead of a SME. What’s the best way to seek a new job in industry & position in the interviews? How to explain the 3 year gap without disclosing that it was just something I wanted to try and then got complacent and now am seemingly 3 years behind my peers/industry knowledge. I feel like I’ve lost my way a bit.
