I interviewed for a Risk Assurance associate position at PwC a few weeks ago and they offered me the position with a Fall 2021 start date 🥰😍 I can’t even begin to explain how excited and happy I am. I worked so hard to get the offer into my dream firm. 🤲🏽🥺

Any advice for a 3rd year risk assurance associate looking to break into a consulting role? I feel like I don’t quite have the tech experience (knowledge of SQL, Java, etc. ) and i don’t quite have the accounting knowledge being that we’re in IT. . Anyone make the switch ? What advice would you give ? Anything I should try to learn now or any transferable skills you leveraged? Anything would help!

Incoming FSO assurance associate at EY starting this fall. Looking to start investing, but I know independence plays a role in what we can invest in. My goal is to hopefully make it until SM one day, and from what I’ve researched after reaching manager investment options become quite limited. Any ideas on where I should start or know more about EY policy? Thanks in advance!

I can’t help but feel that the partners in my practice have already decided who they’re investing in to help develop and promote—and it doesn’t include me. I’m a high performer and well-liked, but I see other people at my level and above still get preferential treatment and I think this is hindering promotion. My only solution is to find an exit to another firm. Has anyone else been in this situation and also found their only way to solve this was to leave?
