Exit opportunities for Risk Assurance / DAT? I feel like what we do is so concentrated - what’s one thing we can market ourselves as having experience in?

I switched to AAS by leveraging my accounting background. I’ve seen people go to other advisory roles leveraging their project management background if they have any, and other leverage the “it” background to get into tech implementation. I like to be real with people, it’s an uphill battle to get out of RA/DAT, as you mentioned the position is pretty niche. It is posible but it takes a lot of work and networking. The sooner you leave the better. I’ve seen associates and to a lesser extent seniors having a comparatively easier time pivoting compared manager and up.

What is DAT?

Is there a similar role like DAT that tests ITGC/ testing of controls? I like the work that is done but the hours are gruesome

But yes - formally fait / itra

Difficult selling yourself to the industry jobs at manager+ level which is why so many are still at PwC. The ITGC work at clients is performed by senior equivalents and below with maybe a manager, so no need for those skills.
