Fraud and Forensics

Stuck in a loop. I’m having a hard time finding a steady job in forensics. I’m getting thrown back into audit because it’s the only steady job I’m being offered. But it’s not as satisfying. Any tips?

Same situation here. I can’t seem to get out of audit. I apply for forensic jobs and then the recruiter tries to talk me into audit.

Have you looked into consulting companies that specialized in forensics, for example Mandiant

So to clarify I did not look at Mandiant but other companies. Thanks for the advice!

I realized tuition reimbursement is the biggest Catch-22. We get 10k per year given the work hours and travel, it's nearly impossible to complete a part time masters degree

What do you do when small local firms won’t give your resume the time of day, but everyone you ask for resume feedback on says your materials are fine? These aren’t big law or boutiques, we’re talking probably paying $20-30 an hour part time as an associate with firms of 1-3 attorneys generally. I know biglaw is recovering from COVID but has it really hurt small law so badly getting an interview is next to impossible? Any and every practice area. Work is work. Approx. 500k local population size.

Even with all the info out in the open, it’s clear that stealing others’ work gets you hired, and being a whistleblower gets you fired. What does this mean for the rest of us normal, honest folk?

Has anybody just laid it all out in an exit interview? Gave my two weeks and I’m concerned about ethics - mostly the reason why I’m leaving.

Switching birth controls from nuvaring to pill for the first time in years (thanks shitty health insurance) and I’m sooooo afraid of getting bad hormonal breakouts in the first few months. My skin is pretty clear, I get minor hormonal breakouts before my period and I have a good skin care regimen. Any tips?
