Not valuable Long term if you want to yay in consulting. But your pay will significantly increase after you are done with your two year party.

Question for the group. I am an experienced individual currently searching to get out of private and into public. I am a CFE and Certified Technology Business Management Executive (CTBME) with an MBA and am scheduled to take AUD of CPA on May 13th. Am I barking up the wrong career tree to try to exchange an extensive and diverse career into what appears to be specialization within public? I really enjoy project work as the monthly grind has worn very, very thin. Opinions?

Not a confessions - just some thoughts:
I don't use the word "ex" - I feel that all my past relationships are still part of me. They all added value to my life and hopefully, I did the same for them. Find memories remain no matter why our relationships end. I will always cherish the time spent with those beautiful wonderful ladies who allowed me in their lives. I have stayed in touch with most of them. None of the breakups were with any negativity -sometimes things are just not meant to be.
