Looking to move into a fraud/forensics field. Currently in Financial Services Consulting for 3 years and hate it. What are some possible paths that might be a good place to start?

EY is hiring seniors. DM me for a referral

EY1 is an anomaly. Literally everyone is working on COVID and there is a shortage of people.

Well the problem with consulting is you’re just going to be on implementation-related projects and not actually do anything as a fraud / forensics sme. Maybe go work as an investigator at a bank

FTI’s risk and investigations practice is hiring. Take a look and see if that would be a path you are interested in. Happy to refer you if you chose to apply.

I have an opportunity to take a Senior role at a firm just smaller than Big 4 from a regional firm. This will be my 3rd job change in 6 years. So changing firms roughly every 2 years. The thing is… I am consistently getting huge pay increases. First change I went up 17%, the second was 30% if you just look at base or 16% if you include annual bonus. I am yet again looking at a 12% increase. But fear staying a Senior forever if this keeps up, what are thoughts on job hopping like this?
