Are there exit opportunities available to audits that FDD won’t be able to compete for. Trying to see which service has better exit opportunities on the long run especially for executives roles.

So I guess a good place to start is, where are you now?

Plenty of people stack their experience making the path from audit to FDD so a lot of folks have both. And it also depends what type of executive role you’re talking…CXO, VP of FPA, VP of Corp Dev, etc.

But, if I had to choose one I’d pick FDD. I’ve always understood it like a pyramid where FDD sits on top and audit below (not talking smack though). FDD would give you a bit of technical accounting, modeling, and M&A experience. Essentially whatever you’d learn in audit + more. Which I’d imagine makes you more well-rounded candidate.

I’ll talk smack FDD > Audit with a wide gap in between

Depends on how long you are out of audit, but it’s tougher to get financial reporting, internal audit and potentially technical accounting roles. On the other hand, easier to get finance heavier roles (corp dev, FP&A).

Is this a red flag? - I interviewed for a financial analyst role with a company -

Had several rounds of interviews back in May, all signs pointed to that they all loved my resume and personality and I made a great impression. I was told that the role was on hold due to “beaucracy” but the hiring manager from the role has kept in touch. He then reached out to me yesterday asking if I’m still interested and want to move forward..no offer letter, just gauging my interest.

What would be your take?
