What location are you OP? The DC metro area continues to hire heavily in the federal advisory area for big four

Ops, sry didn't mention the area** I am based in NYC

Years of experience? I'm assuming coming out of audit?

About to start my 2nd busy season from commercial audit

^put in this busy season and then after you've got a full two under your belt you should be able to put in for a transfer.

Thanks for the advice, many have told me abt doing another busy season and obtain the full 2 years. I have heard big4 are going to downgrade you 1 lvl if you're coming out from a midsize

Maybe because Advisory is a different service line. I can see them downgrading a year. Also depends on market. Most 2nd year associate spots are filled by new hires coming in to their 2nd/3rd year. Typically not a lot of openings at these levels that need filling by external candidates. I'd reach out to recruiters from all 4 B4 as a start. Also approach BDO and see if you can get a transfer into their TAS group. Will be much easier making the jump to B4 out of TAS than it will out of audit.

Ah, I see. I am starting to reach out and see what is out there as well as BDO TAS. Thanks alot!
