Tax Staff at midsized looking for exit opps into a business/finance role. I have my CPA and MS Tax. Would I be better off trying to get a job at B4 audit then industry or are there better options?

Why you thinking about Audit when you have MST? I mean if you hate tax then it is not bad to get into audit but your background would be more suitable for tax. The way market is right now you can easily get into Big 4.

If you are in corporate tax there are plenty of opportunities in industry. Once you get a job in industry you can always move around. I have never heard anyone working tax issues finding a job in industry.

Don’t get into audit.

What are your goals?

Thinking of exiting consulting. Poor project selection and lack of interest in sales is why I may exit, but unclear pay at Senior Manager level compared to good exits is a factor.

BCG or MBB folks, got a call from the recruiter today that the outcome of decision round and calibration call today was positive and the lead partner will give me a call on Monday to discuss with me on the role and offer directly by himself. Trying to get some inside from the HR but she just asked me to wait and hear from the partner, sounds a bit weird and surprise to me as normally this state was usually with the HR. Anyone experienced this before? Was this really a good sign? @BCG Digital

I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.). I work with reps at these places as part of my job, but technically their loyalty is to my clients (the ones spending $ on their platform), not to me, working at the client’s creative agency. So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?

Hello Everyone! Had a discussion yesterday regarding “claw backs” being included in a policy for sponsorship if the new employee leaves before 3 years.

I get wanting to save costs but at the same time doesn’t feel inclusive or welcoming. Thoughts? Have you done this or seen it work? Thanks!
