Anyone have experience boomeranging by going to the military? Will they take you back from something without a financial focus and is it ok to do this younger than a typical boomerang?

Are you looking to join for the first time and if doesn't work out boomerang back to public accounting? Or were you in the military and in public accounting looking to go back into the military?

Join for the first time

Marine here. There are age limits for sure. Best bet is go to law school and become a JAG officer. They will help pay for it

Semper Fi KPMG1 Marine here as well. I think if you go in and you are a manager you can boomerang back as a senior as most contracts are 4 years unless you want a job with a lot of training then they can go up to 10 years.

Don't go JAG if you don't want to do that. Do what you want to do in the military.

You can also look into the reserves. Basically you report I believe a weekend a month and a few weeks for training. With this you can work and serve at the same time so there would be no need for a boomerang. Also there are laws in place if you deploy or have to go somewhere for training you get your job back. Really something to look into though.

If I got offers in two companies and suppose company1 offers 5LPA and company2 offers 10LPA. First company called and revised my salary to 10LPA. But I am still trying for other companies.
Now if I get any better offer and don't want to join in company1, will they accept?
