Well, what I like about your firm based on my conversations with your colleagues and my research to date, is the way you do XYZ, the commitment you show to XYZ and the way you treat your people. Those are factors that are important to me culturally and what I feel is reflected here.

Is it still possible to get into FDD with less than one year of audit experience?

I have worked 9 months in audit and luckily passed CPA exams. I am trying to get into FDD asap and I saw some people did that with less than one year experience last year. I heard that the M&A activities slow down this year and firms overrecruited in 2021. All the FDD job posts either need 2+ years experience or at least 1 year FDD experience. Should I take a shot?

Appreciate any insights and advice!
