Any thoughts on going into client advisory services? I’ve been thinking about leaving my tax manager role to go to industry but I like the client aspect of my job. Thinking of maybe trying out CAS and then using that to get to industry if I want out in a few years.

I’ve been seeing some project management roles in industry that I’d like to apply for, but most of my current projects have been risk and controls based. Would it be a stretch/dishonest to tailor my resume to fit those roles? I think I’d be a good fit and have the core skills for the work. I’d like to become a technical project manager eventually.
