Any specialty tax is great for experience but hard to get a lot out of without a solid foundation. Your MST will help with that but some core/fed experience is hard to beat. That being said, if you can get a rotation or internship with the M&A or international (consulting/structuring) group I’d say you should definitely jump on that.

^^I get this response to some extent and I see this a lot. I think there is some truth to this but the smartest people in M&A know subchapter C way better than those in federal/core.

honestly the best way to M&A is to go the JD/LLM route but that's 4 more years of school

Hi. I'm a fresh MBA graduate from IIT-B with no prior work experience. This Covid has taken a toll on the opportunities for fresh graduates and I'm looking out for people who could guide me or refer me for the same. I have 9 months internship experience across marketing and operations domain and 6 months experience of running my own business which I had to close down. I've been a freelance Content writer and event organizer as well. It'd be really helpful if you could help me with this. Thanks.

@ Current accounting professionals in the Big 4, do you regret going the accounting route? If so, what do you wish you would have done differently? I did my tax internship at a Big 4 recently but I realized I’m not really passionate about the work. But people have told me to stick with it because the experience you get translates well to other areas of business. So the decision I have to make now is either pivot to finance/something else or stick with Tax and regret it for the next X years.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
