I spent the summer doing EBPs at KPMG. Very dead end. In fact the senior was kinda of griping about joining the group full time because of the lack of exit ops and weird scheduling the rest of the year post 10/15. I’m not an expert, but my sentiment makes me feel like to avoid it

Yeah from what I’ve seen at my offices EBP practice it seems kind of dead. They just pull unscheduled ppl from audit for their busy season. I’d avoid 🤷‍♂️ but again I’m not an expert so it’s totally possible!

Is it a dead end if I decide to pivot out of public accounting? Those of you who have solely done Employee benefit plans, how was it? Pros/Cons?

Have a little less than 1YOE at my firm (started in Sept) - is it a bad idea to apply now or should I wait to the 1YOE mark? Would it be a bad idea to cold apply? Don't want to miss out entirely on the hiring spree but also worried about being dinged due to relatively little experience. I don't have a lot of connections at the firms but can probably pull together a referral in the next few months with some networking.

I don’t have much experience as this is my first job in advertising (comms background) and I don’t want to come off as naive or ignorant! Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you!
