I’m current an S1 in corporate tax for a Top 10. I had an interview with a Big 4 for a tax technology position, but didn’t get in. I’m heartbroken because it was my dream job. 😅Everyone I spoke to seemed to like my experience and the recruiter said the team liked me as well, but they didn’t offer any feedback. Any advice on software or certifications I should get to help me get into tax technology and tax transformation? I’d really appreciate it - thank you for hearing me out!

Hi All, seeking advise. I was hired at the beginning of this year just before the market blown up here in Australia. Perf wise I passed early probation and received pay raise and a promotion back to back in two months but yet I'm so under the market rates. I'm so comfortable with the team and I love what I'm doing and achieving, but financiallyI'm struggling. And what upsets me the most that the new hires are getting way I mean WAY more than me even if that was a junior role. What should I do?
