I have an upcoming in person interview for FSO Advisory Manager role with EY. What kind of questions should I expect? Anything that I need to be aware of for FSO?

Me too! Which practice?

Op, out of curiosity, how many years of experience do you have?

Any specifics on service line/practice?

Depends on practice

Yeah FSO advisory just means financial advisory but we have all the same practices within it as normal advisory so you’ll have to be more specific.

Can’t disclose too much. But this is for FAAS. And they are looking for people with regulation and risk experience in banking. So I assume this is for CECL implementation.

@P1: I have about 5 years of experience in industry and consulting

Wonderful how ladies are lowballed. I am definitely going to push for M. Eight years exp.

Ahhh yeah FAAS is in FSO assurance (the audit practice of EY) not advisory so hopefully you have an accounting background

I am a CPA but not by trade. Was in corporate finance in industry before. Are they just looking for auditors?

@P1: do you have an accounting / auditing background?

It’s not traditionally financial audits but it is 100% audit related - more about 'what are the insights we can get from the audit’ sorta thing. I assume the CPA was required to even get in the door. We have info about FAAS on our public home page, I would definitely start there. While FAAS is definitely the more interesting type of audit work, If you want consulting you want FSO advisory, and this is not that.
