Hi! I am a B4 tax staff (soon-to-be senior), and I’m seriously considering management consulting - I think it’s a better fit for my personality and hopefully pays better…so my questions are 1) are consulting firms hiring junior levels at all these days 2) what companies and positions would be my best shot? I think I’ll have a lot of networking to do, so any tips around that would be appreciated. I’m based in California (prefer SoCal over the Bay Area but overall flexible with location)

We have a posting up for Tax Staff, but we’re also looking for Seniors. Wonderful culture, in growth mode, truthfully team-oriented with hands-on partners, manageable hours and flexible work arrangements, etc.

Currently small market tax Staff making $55k and expecting the 7.5% raise to Senior in October. Could make $70k plus a bonus at another opportunity in town. Would essentially be making 10-15k more this year and likely more money next year to. Other op is not an accounting role and has a path to grow. Thoughts?
