Accounting

I’m an experienced associate here with the firm for almost 2.5 years. I’m up for promotion this year but it looks uncertain. I’m in tax. What are my exit opportunities? I don’t have a cpa right now

Get your CPA. It’s just 3 letters but opens up doors

You can be a good accoutant in financial services firms or real estates etc.

Don’t get salty. Just hunker down and knock out the CPA exams while it’s still on PWC’s dime.

I was in a similar situation last year - didn’t think I was getting promoted to senior (had just hit my two year mark) so I went on an interview at a private equity firm, but I’m in PCS and they definitely wanted someone with more corporate experience. Also applied to Bessemer Trust (basically a 1040 shop with no room to grow). Didn’t end up getting an offer from either but I did end up getting promoted and I’m not a CPA. Hopefully you have a resource leader or something who will go to bat for you! Good luck with everything!

I agree with EY 1 and Weaver 1. If you’re passing the exams and willing to suffer through to finish it off on someone else’s pocket then get the exams then bail!

This isn’t helpful. I’m asking for exit opps not the obvious to finish the cpa exams. I already exhausted Becker and still no luck. Everything has expired. I have enough intelligence to know i need a cpa but I want to know what options I have without one and thank you AM1 for actually answering that

If anyone wants to join a boutique HR & Talent Advisory consulting firm, Kincentric is hiring for an Associate Partner role! Location doesn’t really matter, but preferably in IL, NY, or ATL.
