so i’ve been freelancing and was talking about going staff until covid hit and they paused hiring. so i took a job elsewhere, lower pay, making graphics for social media. i’m prioritizing stability since i support my parents. but if you were me, what would be your plan? i was a little bummed by the role, i don’t mind production work but i was kind of in talks for art director and yeah, would it be bad to leave my new job in 4 months or so supposedly when things get better?

Anyone have insight on what changed in the tax industry that guarantees lay-offs are coming? Just curious bc the entire 2020 tax year will be busy season for me. Is it just me that feels like tax cpas are underpaid to begin with?! Always understaffed and overworked? Who would agree to a 20% pay cut in a senior or staff position?! Id take the opportunity to make career changes but unfortunately work for myself.

Looking to get out of public accounting and applied for a Staff Accountant position. The company is known for having a great culture and I’m thinking the schedule will be much better. I’m thinking the compensation will be similar in the new position as what I’m making now so I wouldn’t be getting the normal jump in pay people expect when leaving public accounting. If I were to be offered the position, should I take it? Should I expect a better position if I’m looking for an accounting type role?

Advice needed: I met a senior exec at a virtual industry event, we've stayed in touch during COVID via email. Shared with him a white paper I wrote, which he responded positively to, going as far as to CC his senior staff and telling them to read it. I want to transition to this organization, but they don't have any jobs available that fit right now. Should I broach this job interest now or wait until a suitable role in his division pops up?
