I'm in forensic advisory and am looking to make moves. Any ideas on how to change paths? 2 years, CPA CFE

Move into what? I was in forensics supporting banks, moved to advisory compliance for banks.

That's more what I'm trying to find out. I feel like I pigeonholed myself early on and don't know what my options are.

Maybe something in the same industry? Also, PwC now has a separate analytics practice, that's another natural transition from forensics. Please explain more about what you've done...

My experience has been somewhat sporadic, mostly somewhat mundane compliance within banking and utilities

Compliance in advisory should be easy, unless you're not interested? Switch firms if you have to. You have a valid reason: want to do something more interesting... Go to cross over events or trainings for other practice groups. In LA, entertainment presents...

CISA type compliance work? Slowly move into IT?

@op. I transferred recently from forensics to MC. Try to get on a project that interests you first regardless the practice then decide where you want to switch to.

Good advice guys, thanks!

What office are you in?

Mid-level litigator. I have accepted an offer for a top litigation shop but I am still waiting on conflicts. I have started preparations to move to the new city but no contracts yet. A top corporate shop that I applied to several months ago reached out for an interview. The firm is in a different city than the offer I’ve accepted, but long term I really want to be in the corporate firm’s city. Ultimately I want to go in-house. Take the interview right? Cont.

Having a hard time figuring out where to buy a long term house. We both work in the city, and have a kid. We want decent space (is a yard too much to as for?), good schools, nice town, walking distance to the train. Yes - I’m hoping unicorns do exist. So far something like Bronxville and Scarsdale seem like good options. Open to checking out other towns in any region as long as the commute to Bryant park is close to an hour. Any suggestions?

I got 7 interviews deep for a role in-house at a company that I'd really like to work for. They said they'd keep me in mind for future openings in the department. It's been 4 months and I haven't heard about any opening roles. They do have a role that is tangentially related to my skill-set (would be a stretch for me, but maybe in a good way?), but I'm concerned that shooting for this and missing might reflect badly for an opening that would be more in my wheelhouse. Thoughts?
