Currently starting my second year in PA
Total experience: 1 year FT (2 busy seasons), 2 Big 4 internships ( 1 busy season, 1 summer)

Don’t think PA is really for me - it’s really pushing on my mental health, especially through busy season. Currently interviewing for positions in industry, with an interest in Real Estate/ AM firms. Is that an industry you can really grow and learn? Anyone know the hour expectations? What are the salary expectations?

I'm leaving PA for industry. I've done 3 full-time busy seasons doing taxes. I'll be making 20k more at my industry tax job that only requires 45-55 max tax season hours versus my 65-75 hours right now. Room to progress, chose a place where you can work across departments for more experience and they promote from within and will create positions for you for growth.

Been contemplating moving out but feeling like that’s not the smart thing to do. Lived at home through college up until now. Ideally I wanted to continue staying home and save as much as I can (cont.)

I applied for job 6 months back and my technical interview and everything was cleared.. Accenture process is too slow that again I have to appear for Technical interview instead of HR round.. Interviewer was not interested in taking my interview.. First she rescheduled the interview then she finished my interview in just 20 minutes without even investing proper time.. My interview went well still my candidature is rejected.. I feel like I was interviewed again so that they can reject me..

He tells me he’s serious about our relationship but talking about living together, marriage, and kids makes him feel pressure / anxiety and hasn’t said I love you yet, however I feel loved snd cared for in this. Do I give it more time?
