Interviewing in industry with an international firm that is looking for someone with 8 years experience but the title is Senior Associate. I am a big 4 manager right now. What should I do?

Don't they have a manager role ? Can the role be upgraded ?

In some firms “Senior Associate” is very senior indeed (eg most law firms)...

What is the org chart. Don't get caught up on the title, if the responsibilities, pay, reporting structure and other key aspects align with your expectations/goals for a job switch.

Hey Mates I'm working in pretty good fintech firm. I'm in my 30s with 2 kids and they are calling everyone to office by January I want remote job and would never want to live in any city again. Wondering which route to opt? 1. Start investing in open source and build a profile, find freelance jobs on upwork/Fiverr Or 2. Start giving interviews in remote jobs. FYI I'm terrible at interviews and spoken communications. Please provide your inputs. I want to work remote with good pay.

Does B4 let people go the same day as their resignation only if they’re going to a direct competitor? How about MBB or a tier 2 consulting firm? Have people been let go immediately in case they go to FAANG or other industry firms?

I wanted to post this for those who see and those who need to see: I, along with you, feel dejected by my current position. But I went to an absolutely no name school and could not find a job out of college for 5-6 months. Randomly got an interview request from PwC for a position I never applied for through LinkedIn. All this to say, everyones path is different and yours will work out how it should. Everything happens for a reason, assuming you always put your best foot forward. May we succeed.

Guys I know this question has been asked before, but just want to hear some thoughts on this. Is it worth it to go from one big 4 company (EY) to another (Deloitte) for consulting? The major factor is pay increase. The major down side is loss of people network. Thoughts?

I have two offers - same comp: Big4 A - I used to work there so I have some network and connections. But it’s a specialized group in niche industry (good balance of provision and compliance) Big4 B - never worked there. It’s a provision only group specialized in tax accounting but no specific industries (probably will see everything) I value my network especially in the middle of the pandemic but I don’t really want to be confined in a niche industry. Provision > compliance. Any advise? TIA!
