I'm sick of the auditing lifestyle, but not ready to leave my firm yet. Has anyone here switched from audit to recruiting or know of others who have?

I've thought about this before.

Knew someone who did this, but she only lasted a year in the recruiting role. Too much travel away from her husband

I know 1 person who switched from tax to recruiting and 1 audit to recruiting. One was a staff 2 about to be senior, other was a manager. Both are very happy with their choice, but they were surprised how much work it is. Like still busy season type long hours, especially fall and spring. Salary, I'm not sure how the audit manager compared, but I know the tax staff 2 said it's about the same had she made senior, and she came in as an attorney so her salary was a little higher. My guess is 75k because I know what she was making at staff 2.

Recruiters definitely make much less than the client facing service lines. Have you considered transferring to another service line like advisory?

The hours are definitely still ~60 when they're attending events but I think they have a good bit of down time. Not sure how much of a pay cut they took though

Went in for a position at a top medical device company. During the interview my male interviewer asked if my “directness” comes off to strong to the doctors? He then asked the same question twice in two different ways. I asked if he meant “can I dim my light”. He said ya. I just said I know how to be strategic when it comes to my deliverance with whom I’m speaking to. I felt his question was misogynistic and quite condescending truly. I’m a woman in outside sales with a type A personality.
