Anyone made the switch from Tax/Audit to analyst/Consulting? What's your favorite thing about the switch? I just received an offer from Accenture as an Analyst for something unrelated to my last position. Really fired up. 🎉

Thank you!!

Nicee congratulations. I think Accenture is definitely loosening up when it comes to resume screens. I got a Consultant interview being from tax, though I wasn't invited back aha.

funny

I think there's definitely exponential difficulty transitioning straight to a C role that asks for 3-5 years experience coming from a completely different field as opposed to analyst - the hiring manager wasnt interested in interviewing me. I plan to transition to tax technology consulting (will be receiving an offer) and may try general tech consulting down the road!

Switched from audit to consulting. Better wlb. Better comp. Less pressure on budgets. More personable. Overall more chill service line and being treated as an adult. I'm being asked more to be relaxed with clients rather than that "pressure them for support" approach from audit.

That's great, do you mind me asking which firm?

How did you get the interview? Referral? Did your audit/tax experience help in the interview?

Referrals, and the tax just showed I understood tech 🤷‍♂️

What kind of consulting?

Tech

Can you pleeeeease give me advice on how? I’m trying to go from a field that’s even more related and can’t land an interview

Referral from a senior inside

i just had an excellent review with my supervisors. we are aligned i am ready to be promoted. i will be moving from project manager to senior project manager. the catch; my company has laid off 75% of its staff, and cut our salaries by 25%. timing is unclear, since we work in the live entertainment space. what is fair to ask for? i have 7 years work force experience, am the only one in my position, touch every creative deliverable the agency makes, and updated and streamlined 10+ processes.
