It seems that a lot of jobs I feel I am qualified for in PF&A (5 year audit at Big 4) are only looking for management consultants and investment bankers. How do you suggest I frame my experience?

Before I can answer your question I’d want to know why your experience looks like and what you’re going after. Management consulting is very different from the traditional path in accounting. If you’re in audit, you should frame your experience from the perspective of your people skills and deep understanding of the business and how it operates. Focus less on audit itself and more on how audit allows you to see the business from the inside.

Avoid using the word audit too much, focus more on attention to detail/diligence and value-add you provided.
