Senior accountant. Senior internal auditor. But it really depends on what you want to do

Meanwhile but not getting many offers

Look for small private equity companies. They normally aren’t very particular about if someone has the CPA.

I was never in audit...my background is a bit unique. I started in M&A within a large corporate

Switch to Internal Audit

Go the finance route and get out of accounting. Look for financial analyst roles.

Internal Audit, financial analyst, finance, corp accounting, etc. You have a lot of options, just know that as a senior without a CPA, you'll be looking at staff or senior roles depending on company size. Feel free to reach out to recruiters because they're good at advertising for B4 ex-employees even without CPA.

Compliance role, anything that doesn't emphasize the accounting part of CPA you'll be equal to any other candidate. Emphasize your documentation/audit experience

Thanks for all the responses

In my mind, if you are a salesman you need to get a life. How about a real job for a change, pal? Selling other people’s products is slavery. I’d sell my body for chump change before I sell anyone’s product. Selling other people’s products is like selling your soul.

Commented this elsewhere but cackled remembering it and thought we could use a laugh:

I was babysitting my niece during the 2016 primaries. She FINALLY went to sleep. 2 hrs later woke me up poking my arm. Scared the shit out of me. She said “I have a question. Is it ‘Marco Rubio or Marc O’Rubio?’” She was five.

Long story short, I have a bachelors in Public Health/Health Science, and no idea what to do with it. I currently am contracted with a disabilities agency in the vocational services side of things, working for $20/hr with no benefits. I realize this is a very low paying job, but I do not know the extent of the career options with the degree I have. I’d like to ask, what would be the highest paying/most rewarding career options for me?

How likely is a Big 4 firm to not promote you because you were hired too close to the promotion date? I have an offer from EY to be hired in January at slightly less than what I make now, but I was told I would probably become senior by august since I’m an a2. This seemed like a better deal because even though I make more at pwc, I would become an a3 instead of senior in June. How likely is EY to end up telling me they won’t promote due to being too recent of a hire?
