Currently looking to leave audit for a Senior Financial Analyst or FP&A position in the media/entertainment/music industry. I’ve always thought it’d be cool to work a company in one of those industries. Has anyone made this transition from audit and can offer some insight on what the job is like on a day to day basis?

Yes I know someone who did this. He works for some music agency and acts as like a liaison between the agents (operations) and finance groups. He loves his job. I’m pretty sure he spent years literally going to concerts and talking to people who represented acts to network to get that job though.

I posted in the Healthcare bowl but didn’t get quality responses. PE is notorious for being difficult to break into unless you’re IB. However, there are success stories of consultants making it. Healthcare consulting is lucrative because it requires a very niche knowledge base that is honestly rather difficult to acquire. I’m wondering if that niche knowledge base would make it easier to exit to a healthcare-focused PE firm. Thoughts? Also, general tips for moving to PE would be helpful!

Hi all - I’m working as a Jr AE at a remote agency. Before full-time at this agency, I interned there for 2 years and often did pro-bono work.

Today, I was offered a position at another agency as a remote AE with more than double my current salary. I didn’t seek this job out but don’t know what to do.

Hi ladies. I need some advice. I'm currently out on maternity leave, to return in about a month. I was just informed my male counterpart in my department will be getting a promotion by our new boss.

What would you do in my situation? Demand to know why I wasn't considered? Leave?
