Thoughts on exiting at a lateral level to the industry? Found an interesting strategy role and am in touch with the hiring team. However title is same as my current one (Sr. Associate). I know this title thing sounds superficial but wanted to get other fish’s thoughts on this 🙏

I would exit a title level up. Industry is slower progression.

I did it, the role was really chill. Got bored and came straight back to consulting 6 months later. I’d say trust yourself to shoot higher, you got this 🤞

You probably want to understand their title system first. For example, Associate in banking is different from Associate at B4. Without those info no one can tell whether you are getting a lateral, lower, or better position.

Should’ve clarified. Its a lateral movement from their titles as well. Sr Associate is a post MBA role at the company (similar to S&)

Thanks folks. Appreciate the insights

I would not lateral to a post-MBA role unless you’re a direct promote from undergrad.

I’m current an S1 in corporate tax for a Top 10. I had an interview with a Big 4 for a tax technology position, but didn’t get in. I’m heartbroken because it was my dream job. 😅Everyone I spoke to seemed to like my experience and the recruiter said the team liked me as well, but they didn’t offer any feedback. Any advice on software or certifications I should get to help me get into tax technology and tax transformation? I’d really appreciate it - thank you for hearing me out!

Let me start by saying I love Accenture. Accenture has given me an opportunity to literally change my life for the better. That being said, I feel like my head is always being put in a box here. I feel frustrated in certain situations because I want to be innovative and move fast, but there’s a certain culture that forces me to reign back that innovation that I imagine exists in a more entrepreneurial role. Not sure what to do :/

I would be happy with a bottle of champagne at this point. Thoughts?
