Currently an assurance associate with my CPA. Pretty miserable and already thinking of exit opps. Anyone ever go from Big4 audit to wealth management/financial planning? Interested in personal finance

Having a CPA is very helpful for financial planning, I would still consider the CFP though. I’m actually interested in doing the same thing.

Seems like an awesome career. Great work life balance, good money (I think?), and you get to help people. Only thing is getting started with a good firm and getting clients. Not sure how long that’d take

I inadvertently stumbled into it out of public. It's a good area to be in. My title is still Senior but my Manager friends in audit make less than I do.

Thanks for your response! Do you find it to be a rewarding career? And are you at a small, RIA firm or a larger regional branch?

I’ve been thinking about this a lot recently. Seems like a great and not too off the wall jump

Thanks guys. Is a CFP usually required? I love the idea of being a financial advisor but building my own book doesn’t sound very appealing and not sure if having my CPA is helpful in that field

I was laid off fall of last year, allegedly due to covid. I just saw that they re-listed my position and now am devastated and doubting everything about my career. I got good reviews at this and my previous jobs but many are cowardly about giving honest feedback. I took a step down and started a new job recently so I’ll be ok in the long run but the job I was laid off from was my “dream job”. I don’t have strong family/friend support, exacerbated by covid isolation. Any wisdom/advice?

Advice needed! So I completely bombed the GMAT today (70 points below my OG practice test average LOL). Should I cancel it or keep so I can buy the enhanced score report? I know I was having major testing anxiety and was off on timing, but I’m curious to see whether the ESR will reveal any other useful red flags to make sure this does not happen again. How much will it hurt me to keep the score (680) if I end up getting a much better score in 2 weeks when I try again?
