For those in tax, how many of your interviews involved technical questions? I’m a staff interviewing for an industry role and the interviewer had 10 tax technical questions that she wanted to me to answer - journal entries, depreciation calculation, etc.

I hate the billable hour, the practice of law, and myself. I started out doing ID for a few years. Hated it. Transitioned to an in house gig, which was mostly collections work. Loved the work, but the environment was toxic. Now I do administrative law and I'm back to the billable hour. I live in the middle of nowhere, so I need to find a remote position. I currently make $110k. The jobs in my area pay half what I make. I wish I could find an alternative. I have no time for my family. I give up.

Incoming MBA here - am attending the Toigo Catapult virtual conference over the next few days and want to understand what to expect in the video interview component for finalists from anyone who is a current Toigo fellow

Received an offer far below what the recruiter said was the target salary, and even below what the recruiter said was the floor… how to respond?

The role is internal (with a subsidiary), and I am having a tough time coming up with a scenario where I don’t take it because even below what the recruiter said, it’s a level above my current role.
