Looking to brainstorm a bit here: my fiancé is potentially going to start looking for a new role after tax season is over. He has about 3.5 years of experience as an account manager at an environmental tech company and then made a career switch to accounting at his family’s firm for 3 years. I think he would like to get back into sales/account management but looking to see what everyone’s advice would be in terms of type of roles and companies to go after!

I work in public accounting and there are a lot of opportunities to leverage this skill set. Many firms big and small are building out their advisory practices, he may want to consider that? Or maybe something along the client accounting services path? Salaries, bonuses, etc are very competitive right now.

Is there anything he can leverage in his accounting experience to turn into a new type of career, or is he looking to get back into tech/env?

I think he’s open to it! He always says he would hate to waste the accounting experience he got and would love to leverage it

That's a really interesting background, and I mean that in a good way. There are plenty of fin tech companies that would love to have him!

Moody’s Analytics may be a good option

Would you rather:

1. Work under a client in an org you turned down an offer for your current job - as in most of the clients were your interviewers and wanted to hire you

Or

2. Work under a less cool client so you have time to see if you can maybe get that role you turned down back

🤡 These may or may not be a real choice I’m making in a hilariously bad twist of fate 😅

I was recently promoted to staff engineer at my company. My role is more strategic and I don’t work in code bases. If I were to change companies I’d likely be most qualified for technical program management. Initially with my promotion TC went from 165k to 185k, then after a slew of resignations the company recalibrated pay and bumped me to 296k TC. This is a big increase, but with the market the way it is I wanted to see what others in the industry think about how competitive it is.
