Think that would def be transferrable. You will likely go in as an associate brand manager. Brand managers are mba or five plus years marketing experience. Good luck - keep us posted

I’ve been looking at similar opportunities. Majority of opps are in CPG firms and they all want MBAs.

Hm that was my impression, too. Such a long road to get there. Out of curiosity, what ops did you find to be exceptions?

Do you have a marketing background at all? I think it would be possible to switch if you have relevant experience. Many of the positions want experience in digital marketing however. JC - why are you interested in making the switch?

No marketing experience yet, but hoping to get onto marketing projects soon (mostly pricing work). I think I realized it's where my interests lie recently and I'd rather be doing what I like if I'm going to grinding away :)

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.

What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
