I left public accounting, but now want to return to the same firm. Is it best to wait to reach out to my old contacts until after busy season to inquire about returning? Or better to reach out now?

Reach out now as they may need to fill a void plus if you’ve come to that conclusion then you’re probably done at your current employer and shouldn’t waste anymore time.

My job is boring, I’m doing intern work, I’m learning nothing, I have to sit in my desk all day with no flexibility whatsoever, my boss is rude and keeps getting mad at me for not having something done when he specifically told me it was due a week later. Mostly though I left as a manager and now I’m an intern.

Yeah I am starting to look around. Am getting paid very well and barely working but will need to get out soon.

I’m in a similar spot and reached out. They told me they are waiting until after busy season to open recruiting back up even tho I’m pretty confident there is a need.

No harm in reaching out now but realistically nothing will happen until after busy season. What were your reasons for leaving though? Because it’s unlikely your old firm has changed.

People do it all the time. That’s why it important to leave in good terms. I would start reaching out now. No point in wasting any more time doing something you won’t benefit from long term.

Or use this as an opportunity to talk to other firms. The market is hot now.
