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!

Ich habe 5 Jahre Berufserfahrung und komme mit Bonus bei ca. 70.000€ realistisch raus. Kann nicht einschätzen ob das gut oder schlecht ist.

My main question is if we could achieve 40 hour weeks would you be satisfied or will you want to get hours up to what you’re used to?
