Might sound basic but consider searching differently on LinkedIn. A lot of forensic accounting roles aren’t titled “forensic accounting.” It will often say investigations, disputes advisory, litigation consulting, risk & recovery, anti-money laundering, sanctions compliance, etc.

Also - I’ve noticed most people think of the Big 4 and other public accounting firms when it comes to forensics. But the best forensics roles are consulting firms and boutiques. Also a lot of forensics roles are with banks, fintech, insurance, and healthcare companies. Also government

Look on the firms’ website/career board. Also, network: I’ve heard that sometimes forensic teams don’t post a job opening, the interview/offer comes from just talking to someone and expressing interest. Idk if that’s true, so take it lightly

Seeking advice. Came into consulting late, after 8 YOE in federal gov. Hired on as a consultant despite exp, and spent last ~4 years in investigations/risk, first at fairly well-known mid-tier firm then a boutique. Twice promoted in that time, so now senior associate/director-level making ~150k TC. Others at my level are abt the same age, so I am almost ‘caught up’. Problem is I dislike the work, feel v burnt out & underpaid. Has anyone successfully exited this space? If so, how and to where? 🙏🏽

I have an opportunity to take a Senior role at a firm just smaller than Big 4 from a regional firm. This will be my 3rd job change in 6 years. So changing firms roughly every 2 years. The thing is… I am consistently getting huge pay increases. First change I went up 17%, the second was 30% if you just look at base or 16% if you include annual bonus. I am yet again looking at a 12% increase. But fear staying a Senior forever if this keeps up, what are thoughts on job hopping like this?
