In terms of the interview process obviously it depends on where you go, but having a deep understanding of media (specifically the digital space) can go a long way for learning how to add value to your client's business as an AE

Need some exit guidance. Went from external audit to risk advisory (aka Sox and ic) and feel pigeonholed. What’s the best way to break out? Eventually want to work towards VP but is it best to look for reporting role > controller > Vp? Or financial analyst > upwards? Or back to school entirely?

Just need to vent among people who understand me. So we have a multi-generational workplace which is kinda a good thing, generally, but not lately. With the whole opinion polarization around racism, I feel like I don’t know how to be empathetic, impartial and connect people anymore.
