Network and apply to all the big4. You’ll hear ranking of the big4 but people hop around all the time or exit to the same companies.

Id highly recommend applying to any position your even slightly interested in BUT if possible first narrow down to a few by looking into salary progression and exit opportunities which can be very different depending on the role you go into at a public accounting firm.

As an example, Audit generally pays less than typical consulting roles and hours tend to be longer (60+ and can easily get into the 80s) but if your goal is to be a controller, chief accounting officer or chief financial officer then it’s a great route.

Since you’re an MBA I would highly encourage you to look into careers where an MBA is required and valued.

Keeping with the Audit example, I could be wrong but I don’t believe many auditors at big4 have MBAs because a CPA carries more value for them. Usually only when they’re looking to leave the audit world they’ll get a MBA to go into other relevant fields like corporate strategy, corporate development, marketing strategy, possibly a management accounting or finance role. BUT this doesn’t mean your MBA won’t be valued, just that people usually get one as a tool for exit opportunities.

Hope this helps!!
