Hi, does anyone have any insight into what kind of 100% remote career options there are for an accountant? I just graduated and I'm trying to get my CPA exams knocked out before working. I'm very indecisive on where I want my career to go but I value working remote a great deal (even at the expense of climbing the ladder.)

Work at Crowe as a consultant specifically public sector consulting in accounting, compliance and audit unit you get more work life balance than most consulting roles and have the ability to put an application to be 100 % remote (but sometimes you have to travel to clients) but seems as if since Covid we aren’t traveling as frequently

Would the general path to consulting at Crowe begin with audit and moving up from there?

Does anyone know of where to find remote part time work opportunities for older Indian women? My mom was a part-time after school teacher but has not been doing that due to covid (dad is high risk).

She’s a great teacher though and she’s trilingual (Telugu, hindi) - anyone know of where to find opportunities?

To con't the conversation on engagement rings💍 - what do they symbolize to you? My BF and I got into a discussion about this last night.

I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?

You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.
