Feeling pretty down and stuck in Audit, after several months of searching My market has fewer job ads and I've been unsuccessful in interviews during the late stages (companies have said I fit the job role/culture but went with someone who had more industry experiences).

Okay 🐠 I need your input on two scenarios I have. 1 - Join EY cloud strategy as SM working under two partners and with 2 other SMs (will be partners in the next 2-3 years) that I know well; with a fast track to partner for myself. Or 2 - Join BCG DV at EM level and work towards partner level there. Completed final interview last week and got positive feedback. I don’t think there’s a wrong answer, but I have the EY offer in hand, comp difference is negligible.
