New tax SM here focused on mainly F500 provisions with a technology background - wondering where to take my career at this point. Does it make sense to take a tax M/SM job in industry, chase the carrot of 5-6 years at SM, or try to pivot into straight tax technology (either in industry or public)? I have a lot of goodwill built up at my firm and I work hard, but I am so incredibly burnt out after the last two years.

Time for a fresh start. You just need to be ready. Send your resume out. See what’s out there. I’d say test both the tax industry jobs and the tax tech ones. See what you like. Maybe work with a recruiter who understands your strengths and needs.

Don't settle for a manager role in industry, director of tax at a minimum

smart

Don’t worry about title in industry. Focus on the role description and obviously the compensation. Since you’re going to be sought out primarily by F100 (and similarly large companies), title won’t be super great. I know a few Big 4 managing directors in the bay area that went to industry in-house tax and their titles initially was not even tax director. At a start-up though, you could even get a VP title but they likely don’t need your skillset and likely can’t pay you enough.

My H1B visa transfer with EY has been approved. We have received the e-approval. Can I now resign or give notice at my current firm? The guidance apparently is to wait for physical copy of the approval before officially resigning. But that date is uncertain and I’m afraid I could get the physical copy a day before my start date or a week after that. I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts? As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.
