I am going into my second year as a tax senior associate. Just got off the phone with a recruiter from industry discussing their current tax openings. At RSM, we will likely be finding out our raises in the next week or two. If my estimate of my raise is correct, the industry position will be about $5k more. Is this worth it to leave public accounting?

Hello! I just passed the patent bar a couple of months ago so I'm applying to my first patent agent roles. However, I only have a masters in law, not a JD, so I have no summer associate experience, and every position wants experience first. How did some of you other patent agents get your first positions if you've never worked in a law firm before? Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thank you so much!

1st year experienced associate. Not crazy about the job and am considering exit opportunities into FP&A. When is it too late/too early to leave? Don’t want to become pigeonholed to accounting. Have no FP&A experience, but a bachelors and masters in accounting along with a CPA.


What exit opportunities exist for international arbitration? I don’t want to litigate, and am a non-American so government jobs (which seem to be what my colleagues are exiting into) aren’t an option for me. I don’t ever see myself making partner (nor do I want to), and I feel totally stuck.

Just saw a posting to hire an AVP role... With 15 years of experience??

I admittedly don't have background in TA, but I do participate in the corporate titles process for existing associates where I work. 15 years for an AVP title seems insane.

TA folks, can you give insight as to how insane KSA asks like this are included in a post? I know you're not the ones coming up with them, but what is that conversation with the hiring manager like when you know they're asking for too much?

Hi ladies! I’m interviewing next week for a Sr Account Manager role @ a digital mkt agency.
The interviewer asked me to send in my salary expectation before we talk. This is a little bit challenging to me. Talk numbers.
The position ask for at least 4 years experience. I have 6.
I want to ask for a fair amount because I do think I can bring much value to the company.
Also don’t want to compromise just because I’m out of work at the moment. Do you guys have a suggestion ? TIA!!!
