Audit Bowl

Has anyone worked for private companies as an internal auditor, and later decided to go into public accounting? Was a difficult to land an interview as several years has past w/o public experience?

I think if you expressed an interest in a public accounting firm you would easily get the position. However, I imagine you will probably start as an associate, maybe senior, considering the lack of external audit experience. Generally firms just need people

S1 is right. I took this route and had to basically start over as an associate in public. The upside is, depending on how much exposure you had as an internal auditor, you could possibly get promoted sooner and not have to wait 2-3 years to promote to senior.

We just had someone join our Risk Assurance-IA group. He came in as an exp asc. with 2 years pvt IA experience and 3 years traditional GL acct exp. Left in less than a year for a senior auditor pos'n in pvt. Just expect them to discount your experience. Very hard to come in at a high title w/out prior PA experience.

Thoughts on Dentsu Aegis? I've received an offer for a role (promotion) and thinking about whether it is a sound move - especially in this environment. They went through furloughs and pay cuts in April due to COVID. I'd be making the move from EY which is a great company to work with - but there is such a long line up to get a promotion, and for roles I've interviewed for internally I get the good ole - you were awesome and it was rly close, but someone was just a better fit.

Spent 10y in Big 4 mainly in US and Europe. Interviewing for Associate Partner position with an MBB in SE Asia. Would a ~5y stint in the region be an asset if I wanted to return back to US but remain with the hiring firm? Or is it a rabbit hole?
