Got a referral to PwC from a friend for a experienced audit associate position in a sector I am interested in that I can’t get into at my current firm and am waiting to hear back. Currently an A1 about to be an A2 at another big 4 and already have the CPA passed. After some thought I think I would be much more interested in the CMAAS group from my research. If I get the interview, would it be bad to tell the recruiter this and what are the chances of it working out?

I used to work at PwC. My understanding is that recruiter only recruit for specific roles, means the recruiter interviewing you for an audit role won’t be able to get you into CMAAS. If you know you want to go to CMAAS, I would try to connect with CMAAS recruiters. Talking to audit recruiter and then telling them you’re actually interested in CMAAS is kinda wasting everyone’s time.

That’s not true we have plenty of people coming in with 1-2 years of audit experience as high performers

Left this out.... I am currently in audit by the way.

Isn’t advisory different than audit?

I meant more so that if the work is substantially different what makes OP think they will be a good candidate, be able to do the work, and actually like it?

What did you apply for? I think it really depends on what practice you applied for

Tbh I don’t think CMAAS is hiring rn. We’re still pretty dependent on deal flow and while we’re doing ok with our cornerstone clients and smaller projects things are definitely slow. I’ve been told not to work >40 hours because they’d rather add another body in because we have excess capacity.
