I’ve been looking for years. Tough out once you are in public for so long. If you have ASC 740 experience you should be fine. Otherwise it’s a tough road into industry

Nontax can be challenging but doable. One path is to go for your PMP and focus on your project management skills gained through PA experience. You can also explore internal positions (hr, marketing, chief of staff, etc) that leverage your knowledge of the firm.

Why don’t you guys consider making moves to smaller firms, like below top 100. You can command a good salary and put a request in to do some audit work. I’m on the hunt right now and that’s actually been a strong selling point for me. That I worked at a small firm and was able to do audit and accounting work, which supplements my tax experience.

I also am interested. I’m 5-6 years in tax and very much regret pigeonholing myself. Do I really need to just start over in audit if I want to get out of tax but stay in accounting?
