Accounting

Finished my 1st year, don't like my client and looking to transfer to another B4 as audit associate. Is it easy? I looked on other B4 website but don't see any position opening.

It's easy if the firms need to increase their workforce. Right now they are trying to shed them. So you may want to ask your coach if you can be put on a different job.

I don't think you have the right attitude to make it very far in B4. If you transfer you are going to get thrown on another shit client, there are plenty to go around. You need to stick it out or get out all together.

I did Keto before I even knew it was Keto. I was on a weird project, alone on-site with the whole team scattered, so I skipped dinner every day and worked out for two hours, woke up and had a giant carb-free breakfast and a spinach salad for lunch. I lost 40lbs before I rolled off... I remember my sweat smelling like ammonia all the time. I'm gonna get into a similar schedule... hopefully it melts off this time again - 10 years later!
