I’m struggling with finding jobs that are outside of accounting (Currently an auditor at a Big 4) . Any advice to those on a job hunt for jobs that are far from accounting? I can’t help but feel like none of my previous experience matters in the new roles i am looking at ( I’m looking for business operations or consulting type roles)
As a young undergraduate from a tier 1 college, how do I break into in the strategy consulting arms of big 4 or MBB. I am keen to work in the front end office rather than the capability centers.

Hi, I’m travelling to Canada on PR status by July 2022. I currently work for one of the Big 4 consultancies (been here since five years). I would like to understand how much weight that would carry when searching for a job in Canada. Would it even matter? Also, can you suggest if it’s a good idea to approach job consultancies? If yes, any recommendations? PwC EY Deloitte KPMG
Hi Imad! I recently started at B4, realizing after compliance busy season I’m more interested in audit. Internally transfer doesn’t seem guaranteed and will take at least 6+ months. (Cont.)
Hi! I work in an OIG. What other roles within the government would be an easy transition from auditing, as a 13? For background I worked as a manager at a Big 4 in Risk/Internal Controls and a smaller firm auditing contracts and grants.
I moved from B4 to the industry last year to join a new team. My peer is an internal transfer and our roles are pretty complimentary so we have to work together on many areas. Since she joined the team, she has been stepping on my toes. To be continued in the comments.

Is it possible to lateral to MBB from Big 4? I was an experienced hire with an MBA but had no consulting experience.

Should I reach out to recruiters on LinkedIn or what’s the best approach if there is one?

How does M&A consulting fare in a recession. Considering joining a B4 but nervous given recent tech layoffs and talk of an impending recession.

Hi friends, Got two offers. One with: Humana(Remote)[Insurance based company]and another with Mastercard(Hybrid) (Ofallon, MO)-need to relocate after 6 months. Both are for Senior software Engineer. Humana- TC= 155K, Mastercard-TC=175. Which is a better option, as talk are going on that, recession will happen soon. I’m confused to choose, as some say Insurance company doesn’t get effected with recession. Please suggest.
Is an iphone too expensive as a (belated) mother’s day gift? My mother needs a new phone and has been using iphone for a long time. She is now retired and probably can’t afford an iphone, but she’d want an iphone to use facetime, and privacy. MIL has money but uses cheaper phones. I want to buy one for my mom and MIL as well (for fairness). But somehow it also seems like a big spend as we’re also paying mortgage. We’re immigrants and also we pay for flights etc every year for parents. WWYD?

1 yoe here getting about 130 TC. Amazon is quickly moving forward with me. Whereas I’m still waiting for an initial application response from the rest of big tech. The thing is of all big tech, Amazon is my last choice due to the toxic culture that I’ve heard. What would you do in my shoes and what comp package would you expect Amazon to offer?
