Been at a boutique for the past 5 months and regret it, thought I’d change my mind but feel like I’m now wasting time. How long do I need to wait before applying to Tier 1/2’s?

Wasting how?

Don’t see it as somewhere I want to progress long term - still learning a lot but more what not to do than what to do

Is this is your first job out of uni?

No - I graduated over 4 years ago

I've gone from a boutique to Tier 2. Drop me a message if you fancy a chat

Had a phone interview with Apple today and worried I won’t get to the next round. I think it went good but not sure what she was looking for, the lady didn’t seem impressed. Any help would be awesome

I went through two rounds of interviews for
a job that the posting stated $36.66 per
hour (FP&A Analyst)…the company
recruiter had told me in the initial call the
pay could be 32-36 because of the other
benefits. If I do get a job offer what range
should I try for? I was really hoping to get
around the 36-40 but now I feel like they
may try to offer lower than what was
posted. Also there was no range but the
average for this position is upper 70s-90k.
Thanks for any help!

Those who switched from audit to fp&a - could you provide any tips on how to tailor the resume to get interviews? I’m a senior at B4 with CPA and have applied 90+ companies but no interviews yet. In my resume I highlighted my experience in reviewing budget to actual variances, forecast models, valuation reports, using excel, etc., which I think is relevant to fp&a. How should I further polish my resume to increase my chances of getting interviews? TIA!

My organization has declared permanent WFH , My CTC is currently 22LPA, since I stay at home with my parents I have no expenses, I am getting lot of interview calls but they all are WFO or Hybrid model. Even if I get 40-50% hike , after adding in the expenses of staying in a Metro city eventually my savings will be same as I'm saving currently. So unless a company offers 75+% hike I don't think I should look for switching?
Thoughts ? Anyone in similar situation?

2YoE at Tier 2 FS practice, considering a switch to commercial law. Any thoughts on the long-term TC trajectory at MBB/Tier 2 consulting vs Magic circle law? Also on the stability of the respective careers?

I have this perception that even if I don’t survive Commercial law, at least I can move to Swindon or Milton Keynes and retrain as a high street solicitor doing divorce filings making £50k for the rest of my career.

Exit opportunity for consultants seems to be pretty bleak in UK.
