How is the Kpmg office in Atlanta? Are you guys looking for audit staff? I may have a potential interview, so I’m trying to gauge since I don’t live in GA. Also, is there a lot of competition there?

KPMG Atlanta were always my fave buddies to party with at training. You’ll love them!

The audit teams are short on staff. Last year they had to pull people from different groups to help out. The Atlanta office may be better than others in the US because it’s a large office and we have multiple events throughout the year and we have a few councils that are helping improve the culture. We also have decent clients in the area.

I think the majority of the ones in the larger cities. They’ve been trying to pull people from advisory to help out. It seems like IT assurance and audit are struggling with turnover due to the hours the teams are working and sometimes people get better offers outside of big 4. This seems to be common for all big 4 and not just KPMG. There are also people that go from audit into advisory after a couple years.

I’ve been feeling really down about my job lately. Last night I randomly applied for a job at EY-P that I thought I perfectly fit the bill for. Within 12 hours I was reached out from a recruiter and was asked to schedule an interview. Even if it doesn’t go much farther It feels like the confidence boost I needed to know there are other options out there for me.

After a few long interview processes, I've learned that prior CPG experience is highly valued when entering any CPG industry (even in low- to mid-level roles).

Alternatively, would love to be able to "spin" my resume to help fill in the gaps that this lack of experience leaves.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.
