“I had audit clients that made acquisitions and while I was looking at these transactions through an audit lens, I found the deal process intriguing and did more research - that is how I found FDD. “ “FDD is fast paced, will give me exposure to a lot of different companies, and help me build my analytical skills”

I literally used that as one of the talking points when asked why I wanted to switch and received/accepted an offer? Literally said I didn’t want to stay on one project year round and liked learning about new companies and industries. In FDD you’re almost on a new project each month

Good luck today!

“Audit was a great foundation but as I look to progress in my career I feel FDD would be a great next step.” You may want to also mention what your end goal is but I can’t speak for you

Value adding, get to work in various deals in different industries other than your recurring audit clients

She asked me if I knew what my raise would be and I just told her the % but not the actual amount. Is that unnecessarily secretive? We’re in diff industries too.
