Has anyone gone from tax to fp&a? What did you have to do to get an interview? Did you need to learn any new skill? What level should I aim for if I’m a big four 1st yr senior?

I see this is an older post—maybe you already had your interview. I made the jump when I was a S1 and went into industry as a staff. Definitely could have gone in as a senior. During the interview, I was mostly asked about my modeling and excel experience and excel formulas I was proficient in. My particular role was heavy in modeling, so excel skills and some VBA were important, but nothing crazy. This was a few years ago, but if it’s not a tech company, chances are their probably not too aggressively moving into cutting edge data analytics software.

It's important to push yourself to achieve your goals, but don't forget to "Live" in the process.
