If there’s a manager that plays favoritism when delegating tasks, what can I do to get more difficult tasks? I’m clearly given intern-level work when my work quality isn’t bad. (Continued)

As soon as I’m done with my tasks, theres another pile of easy tasks to do. I’ve tried to be pro-active and be excited for harder tasks, but it’s pretty obvious that the manager is investing more time into that associate. As of right now, i’m trying to learn as much as I can with these tasks but there’s not much of a learning curve involved. How can i change this outcome or prevent it from happening again in a future engagement?

Is the other associate higher than you? Usually it’s just the work needs to get done and the lowest on the totem pole has to do it. Or maybe it’s the scheduling. If it’s clear it’s favoritism, I’d explain this situation to your coach and if possible have an area you specifically want to work on. Sometimes you have to be political and word it as wanting to work in x area, instead of not wanting to work in y area.

Happened to me and I just kept bugging my manager about wanting to get more experience in a specific area until they did. If this continues to be an issue even after you ask the manager, go one level above them to see if they can help, it do it respectfully

As an accounting major graduating in the fall, I am thinking about my career path and wondering how I should proceed. I don’t know if I want to do tax or audit yet. I did a tax internship at a midsize well known company last semester and will be doing an audit internship this fall with the same company. Is starting out at a smaller public company okay or should I go for the B4 and then move on in a couple years? I want a good WLB but I know with this career it will be tough to find.
