I currently work in RA and wanna transfer to Audit so bad. How hard is it to jump to another firm? I have been looking up experienced hires job postings but they all seem to be for seniors (I will be an experienced associate when I transfer) - what should I do?

Audit has a good exit opportunity for accounting roles. RA has a wide array of exit opportunities. You could get a job as an internal auditor to cyber sec to database admin which pays so much more. Accountants at best gets paid 78k-90k unless you’re doing managerial roles or become a controller.


You're trapped! IT audit for life!


I've seen very few people escape. Even I can't escape myself 😡


What? I read this at least 5x to make sure I understood the transfer is from Risk Assurance to Audit. Which is backwards since RA is def known to work less (esp from Jan-March) and we get paid more.


I'll say join internal audit aka enterprise risk. Easier to transfer and do the same numbers plus learn how organisation works.


Audit exit ops are so much better. If I could go back I'd start in audit. I didn't join big 4 thinking it would be easy. If I'm gonna hate my life for 2-3 years anyways, I'd rather do the job that has valued experience (although audit busy season hours are awful). Author, you can switch to audit but depending on your level you may go in as an associate and lose a year of progress. My significant other did 1 year risk advisory and switched to audit (jumped firms). Exit ops are so much better for them.


You can ask go transfer internally or apply for a job externally. As long as you have your 150 it shouldn't be a problem. With any significant job change, youre likely to lose a bit of progress toward promotion, but associate is the best time for that.


I just did it in March!! Was decently easy just make sure to have open communication with both sides. I reached out to the new markets first and then presented my options to my RL/HR team to decide next steps. I honestly feel like it’s a better fit for me and I like the exit opportunities better. The $ difference isn’t huge at the associate level, worth it
