To clarify, public accounting has nothing to do with publicly traded. Both firms are public accounting firms. One just isn’t registered with PCAOB and can’t audit public company financials.

reached out to me about an opportunity to work as an associate in Tax. They may come back to me next week regarding an interview. I’m 28 years old and still haven’t passed any part of the CPA exam (but hoping to do so soon). Should I consider staying private or explore the public opportunity?

Had an interview a couple hours ago and one of the questions was to talk about some other similar partner companies I've worked with and I completely blanked and only talked about one (although it was a significant one). Should I throw in names of some of the other companies when I send my thank you or just let it go? He didn't seem to keep pushing the question so I'm assuming my answer covered it. But probably would've been helpful to include more names for variety.

Small firm reached out to coordinate a potential part time or per diem role and they wanted to coordinate an in person interview about a week and a half ago noting that it's phase 2 and they are in office...would have been a 40 min subway right and then no clue if masks would have been honored. Was it wrong to say Sorry don't feel comfortable?
