Those who switched from audit to fp&a - could you provide any tips on how to tailor the resume to get interviews? I’m a senior at B4 with CPA and have applied 90+ companies but no interviews yet. In my resume I highlighted my experience in reviewing budget to actual variances, forecast models, valuation reports, using excel, etc., which I think is relevant to fp&a. How should I further polish my resume to increase my chances of getting interviews? TIA!

Are you applying to staff analyst roles or senior analyst roles? Stuff like that is junior level work in FP&A. Did you actually build the forecast or valuation models?

How do I subtly tell someone that he knows my Dad? I am on the final round of interview with this company I really like and meeting the owner next. My Dad mentioned that they worked together and they regularly go on holidays together. Now, I would hope the owner recognises me, but I know my Dad never mentioned his kids to him cos my Dad is an a**hole. So in case I don’t get recognised, how can I subtly bring it up?

A recruiter recently asked me for a salary range and I said 100-125K. The recruiter returned and said we could only do 90-100, but there’s no guarantee they can do 100. I’m okay with taking a lower salary, but the range was based on what I saw on levels.fyi, glassdoor and fishbowl. The average salary for this role is 114K. I decided to move forward with the interview process, but now I’m worried that I may have asked for too much initially. Do you think I dropped the ball here?
