Does anyone know of any remote contract jobs in auditing? Specifically, risk management, compliance or internal auditing? I’m able to work 20+ hours a week. I’m a detailed-oriented person and and a great communicator. I also have a lot of experience in presentation design and enjoy doing those a lot. I would prefer a contract job receiving a 1099 and am not interested in being a w-2 employee. Please let me know if any of you have any referrals. Thank you and I appreciate any tips you can give.

IMO most ppl. seem to want to exit to FAANG, Finance / PE, Fortune strategy at F500, or pursue graduate studies (if you have not already). Why are more people in consulting, where ambition and smarts are abound, not interested in entrepreneurship or joining a high growth SMB (eg startup)?

I am currently in the market for a new job. I would like to transition into a finance role but most require 3+ years of finance, sql, report creating which is experience I don’t really have. On a daily basis I am reviewing dozens of different company financials, import activity, and determining risk for customs bonds. Any ideas on what roles that I can develop better skills in that are closer to finance?
I am staying away from jobs in the insurance, mortgage, and banking industry.

Hi all! I just wanted to share my experience with the CPA exam and how I prepped in hope that it helps some of you. I just found out that I passed my last exam yesterday and I’m now in the process of applying for licensure. I took REG and passed with a 75 about two years ago now. I also took the other 3 around the same time and failed all of them. I tried to fit them all into a semester but that wasn’t realistic for me. Fast forward a year later after I got out of PA and went into industry cont.
