I left a smaller firm at manager level. It was pretty easy to find jobs in industry and at other regional firms. I negotiated a flat 40 with 45 in busy season and had no trouble. Industry was different, but there’s plenty of opportunities out there.

You’re going to be competing against seniors and assistant controllers. The issue being that you don’t have straight accounting experience and everything learned about managing the business cycle of a PA practice is of limited use in private. That said, if you can spin your leadership and management experience right then you can find plenty of openings. Especially if you have tax provision and audit experience. Also if you’re willing to take a salary cut/step down for a period of time it’ll make you much more appealing as a candidate.

In these times, if your referral bonus is $1k or less for seasonal employees you are asking for: 1. Employees who put in work to refer people that end up negotiating a part time option don't work on referring anyone else. 2. If the potential new hire gets an offer, employees have 0 incentive to convince them to accept it. This can even lead to them giving negotiation tips which get the new hire a $5-10k higher offer. They may even recommend accepting a diff firm's offer straight up.

Fellow Fishes - How did you all deal with failure in your career. I was ambitious and smart. I was in IBM and considered to be one of the best of my class. I was fired and haven’t really found my way. I don’t know what to do anymore. 3 years after the fact, I am still at an entry level position. I hate myself for letting things get this bad but I don’t know how to get out of this perpetual cycle. I tried working my ass off but have not been able to shake off that unfortunate past.
