Anyone heard of successful switches out of Audit into a career that’s more people oriented? Feeling lost in my career path and love talking to people/clients, getting clients to like me is one of my strongest skills. CPA but don’t want to do technical accounting.
Also hoping for 40 hour weeks (lol) and over $120k in DC.
3 YOE at BDO audit (mostly private companies)
2.5 YOE consulting (mostly compliance and monitorships)
Thanks for insight or suggestions on finding potential career changes 🥹

Getting clients to like you is one of your strongest skills???

You'll be a millionaire if that's the case

That would be nice hahah

40 hrs a week is tough for client facing roles but a different advisory/consulting group would be beneficial for you.

Dreaming is the fastest way.

Or try a different career path other than accounting. I took 2.5 years off and went back to school, now I am in investment banking.

Hi folks,

Need an advice from you guys. I joined TCS Kolkata as a BPS employee in 2014 and currently I'm in a Finance project working as a Senior Analyst. I have always wanted to be a developer so recently I acquired the knowledge of HTML, CSS, Javascript and Angular. So can I apply for the same in other companies? Or they only want freshers in this segment? As my overall experience is 7+ years but will I be treated as a fresher if I apply for the same?
