Regardless of the fact that it’s boring and adds no value, I initially thought i could withstand given that the pay is not bad and has good work life balance in industry. I’ve realized that i can no longer stand it even given those factors and now thinking about next moves.

Definitely agree with you. Just never got the opportunity to do anything accounting related outside of testing application (automated) controls while at B4.

To be quite honest, I really don’t care what I do. A job is a job to me and if it pays well, which it sure does - making around $150K after 6.5 years graduating college, I’m ok with with it. I make many times as much as my parents have ever made and that I consider a privilege. Count your blessings and make your money work for you so you can do the things you truly enjoy.

been in industry (small companies) for 5 years with an active CPA. Wanted to get in SEC reporting roles but almost every company requires 2-year public accounting exp. Now applying for public accounting firms entry level positions but almost all firms HR asked if I had ever worked in firms. Got rejection emails from firms all the time. Is this a dead lock? firms exp matters much more than a CPA license?

Hi, I started my Digital Marketing business about 7-8 months ago with only 2.7 lakh rupees. I've been facing losses every month since then. I understand that I'm failing because I am working alone. I need to know what I'm doing wrong with my pitch and my approach to onboard new clients.

Also I am open to discussing partners, marketers, and investors even though I have nothing extraordinary to offer right now. But I have a really good brand, story, and grit to make it big with the right help.
