I think I need advice on how to specifically tailor resume/cover letter to hit key words related to business operations or consulting

Have the resume be more impact driven instead of listing out the technicals (which is what an accounting resume looks)

Siegfried may be a a good option for you. I left PwC audit after 4.5 years in search of something similar to consulting (really just something to try out new jobs that were far from audit). I’m in a FASS project now, working 45 to maybe 50 hours a week if things get busy, making twice as much, and I actually enjoy my day to day. DM me if you are interested to hear more.
