Accounting

I have been traveling for an engagement for 2 months. Finally about to roll off and catch a break when my schedule is changed to include a new engagement that will require 2 more months of travel.😠💩

I enjoy my travel engagements. I'm not gonna see my friends anyways during the week, and I don't need to buy food for two months. Plus I get all those miles and points for when I take a vacation.

I've been laid off from D. I'm seeking a similar role, "Resource Manager" or "Engagement Staffing Manager". To summarize, the role entails working with business managers to help fill open roles, providing available staff, and forecasts, etc.; and working with practitioners as they near or land on the bench. Do other consulting firms, such as EY, PWC, Accenture, etc. have such positions? If so, what are titles do they have? I'm seeking alternative search terms.

I have seven years' experience in executive search (based in APAC but have worked on global roles) and want to leave the industry for either an in-house talent role or a consulting firm. I haven't had much luck when I've applied for internal roles in the past. Do I have any chance at getting an in-house talent acquisition role, or is an executive search skill set just regarded as too weird/not the right fit for internal talent teams?
