Interesting I just got an analyst role in strategy in industry. Huge pay and 8-4 . Opportunities within the company to move. They wanted me because of my consulting skills. Just do some strategy classes online to learn how it works . Tailor your resume to show how you saved expenses in tax or increased revenue and you should be fine

I can understand that. I am just already bored with tax work and want to experience some of the work that seems to be done in consulting

What kind of business analyst role?

Probably in Strategy and Operations. Seems like a role where you can get a lot of exposure to different industries and clients. I feel like an accounting background would be helpful but not sure to what extent

RSM 1, so did you start in PA and transferred to a consulting firm like Accenture or McKinsey? How do you like it so far?

It’s hard starting from scratch. It’s also hard to take a paycut. :-(

My background is tax consulting then a year in assurance. Hated it in assurance. Leveraged my experience fixed my resume and applied for strategy roles. I have an analytical background though, was seduced in to big 4
