Hey there, I have two years of experience as an Associate at PwC, worked on projects as a Scrum Master, TOM projects, thought leadership for the AWM industry and digital banking industry. Looking to make a change and specialise. Been looking at internal consulting gigs at banks, other big 4, and tech companies but still unsure of what to pursue next. Any advice ?

I'd wait for a promotion or two before you consider a competing firm. Do you have solid strategy or technical skills? You'll need to be strong in one or the other to go in-house or tech. If you have neither, a certification might help get that foot in the door.

Which career path will u choose for yourself and why? Options - 1) CXO of large tech co., like FAANG 2) partner with b4/mbb 3) CXO of a unicorn - like stripe or what Facebook was in 2006/2007, with a huge upside when it goes public 4) start a company of ur own that has a decent shot of becoming successful. All the options will make u rich and yes u only have 4 options.

I just signed for a 100% raise and promo at another B4 and I don’t even fully comprehend how much that will affect my life yet but I am super ecstatic. I always saw posts about these seemingly out of reach salaries and I would get all sad like damn it’s gonna take me years to get there and then boom just like that I’m there. Unreal. I can’t wait to start.

Currently at B4 and most of my work has been on the international side. Doing a masters of tax law (LLM opened up to non-JD candidates) and find that I’m really interested in what transaction tax / National folks do with memo writing & legal analysis/planning. I know PwC has a group in the international space that focuses solely on planning. Anyone know if that’s limited to lawyers?

My friend group won’t agree to be in a pod and won’t meet unless everyone is 6 feet apart. It’s going to get cold soon and I feel like I’m going to be lonely if I don’t make new friends ☹️
