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!

At Deloitte now. laid off last year while on medical leave. Landed a new job with the help of a senior mentor and vouched for me not knowing my medical limitations.

I feel like I need to switch roles to a non client facing role to be realistic in my health limitations. How do I make the switch and have the convo with w my mentor?

Everyone says staying until one year manager is key to jumping to a great position outside of audit, however I would think there's a ton of value of jumping at senior, gaining corporate accounting experience, and then if you wanted to jump from there opportunities would also be present.

I recently started a new job and it in no way is panning out as it was made out to seem when I started and there are lots of red flags I’m just tolerating right now… for example, even pto and remote work is not as discussed from the onset.
