1) Invent time machine
2) Tell past self that the Big 4 audit recruiters are full of sh-t.

Real tip: Try for an internal transfer or go to grad school.

Network with people in consulting. That’s the most common way I’ve seen people break in.

I switched into advisory rather than traditional consulting, biggest thing was networking. Your skills from audit have a ton of value, you just need to learn how to apply them and sell them.

Strategy consulting or valuation

Get an mba

Most likely you can join the Finance Transformations team within the consulting group. CPA is valued there. However, be willing to start at almost the bottom. Eg. A manager in audit may start a level or two below in consulting.

4th yr in audit, yea pending license approval. I have more than 40months of experience and passed all the exams

I did it. Had to go to the US and get an MBA in between
