someone who quits audit in 2016, move to FDD in this firm in 2016 - 2017 and move back to her old firm to do audit in 2017. Would you choose option 1 or option 2. I am currently doing audit (senior associate) in big 4 with relatively large clients but doesn’t like it.

If you went to audit first, you could always try to switch to FDD later. It’s a really good time to go into FDD now though. FDD opens up some opportunities you may have challenges to try getting straight from audit.

My wife and I are considering planning a trip to Tulum, Mexico for late July. She’s slightly reserved in asking her employer (she works at a dental practice) if it’s okay to take time off with the concern her employer may feel off-put by the request. I personally hate the thought of someone else restricting my ability to make my own decisions, but also want to be contieous of others concerns as well. I feel at some point we all will be in a similar situation - to where we want to go do...

I think I made a faux pas during a discussion with a recruiter when asked what my salary expectations were. I KNOW not to give my number first but I was so caught off guard by the question since it was our initial discussion that I just blurted out a range. I’m afraid that I’ve now locked myself into a range with little room to negotiate if extended an offer. Any advice for how to proceed?
