Accounting

Have you ever come to a crossroads in your career? 1 path is the safe/stable career accounting, senior role, but work is boring. 2nd path, consulting, entry level, but the work seems more fun, risky

As a consultant, I find the risk of creating power points to be the ultimate thrill. Nothing is more fun than trying to line up all the boxes of text with the tables and the fancy shapes and then rolling the dice of life when I present it to a room full of people not knowing if the entire file will reformat itself when I open it on presentation day. Call me a thrill junkie, but I live for this stuff.

Some of these posts are ridiculous. They’re like just exited consulting to FAANG/Niche Startup with $150k base and $400k TC with 6 months of experience,you can do it too! Then they ghost or explain that they are a former SWE 😬 coming from MBB. Going to some super Niche role that people with crazy backgrounds are recruited for. Congrats, but not everyone has that background
