Hi Fishes! I’m a newly promoted S1 in tax at a Top 10. I’m trying to join the Big 4 post 10/15 (preferably KPMG) Does anyone have any tips or suggestions to make it in? I had an interview with EY two weeks ago (before I was officially a senior), but never heard back, probably because they were looking for a senior lol. 😭 Thank you so much everyone!

Big 4 are short on seniors. My advice would be to brush up on the group you’re interviewing for and be able to demonstrate that you understand what the group does and the work that it comes with. How the work that you’re currently done will translate in big 4

Thank you very much; I definitely will do that!

I expect it to be easier than before at getting a job in Big 4 for senior level since the turnover has been so high the past two years.

I certainly hope so! I’m now officially a senior so I’m trying to plan in advance to make that switch post 10/15. Thank you very much!

Ya honestly at least I’m my group, if you are somewhat likeable and have a pulse, you’d have a pretty good shot. Don’t think those interviews are very technical at all

That’s great to hear! If you don’t mind me asking, which group and location are you in?

I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
