Burnout is because you did something consistently for an extended period. You can do quick fixes like go on vacation, get some sleep, exercise more. But they may only help temporarily, depending on your level of Burnout.

Try adjusting your approach to work / life to a more sustainable, and ideally, enjoyable balance.

Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.

Hi, I have received offer letter from IBM. Can I switch technology after joining? Or do I have to work in the same technology. The HR was telling that I have been recruited and tagged under one account and they don't have any information on that. The problem is that I don't have that much in hand skill in which tech I am selected and I may be screwed once I am put into live project in the same skill. How to avoid it. Any suggestions please. Can they terminate me?

Thank you guys in advance.
