Ya no sign that we will be in office on a specific date and they mentioned balancing wfh and being flexible so I ya, I think u should invest in a desk and chair.

Sounds good! Thank you!

They stopped handing out dates. They just said if you have to work from an office. Follow these guidelines. Else stay home. It’s the being told what to do that’s got people all bent out of shape. Which ironically is what your job is basically. Being told what to do for your client. Go figure. Good luck. Hope you end up with a good team

I’m up for whatever on that front. I don’t mind the office I’m currently in the office full time now. But working from home every now and then would be ideal.

Why November? Is it normal to have an offer starting after 2 month?

Sounds good

The RtO date is still fluent but firm is moving to a hybrid format. No one will be in the office 5x a week but can work out the arrangement with their business unit. Most people have proven they can be productive at home. I do t think we will ever need to be in the office 5x a week. Invest in a @ home workspace

Hey everyone. Hope you are having a good day. I have a little question. I am the type of auditor that love fieldwork. I heard from someone that big 4 now tend to switch to work from home mote. Is that true? Do you think it's better to try to get into mid size CPA firms or big 4 small and medium client segment/ industry in order to have the greatest chance to be on audits that require fieldwork? Hope to hear your opinion and advices.

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
