You can apply directly for an fp&a role. Got an offer from a role like that a few months ago. Concepts are relatively directly correlated. People say it’s not but, you can figure it out

You can definitely go straight to FP&A if you play your cards right and are patient. Focus on your quantitative background, understanding of accounting concepts, excel modeling skills (if you don’t have them, get them), experience driving multiple workstreams at once, etc. Avoid highlighting your audit skills and focus more on your deep understanding of the order to cash process. If you don’t have the things above you could either lie or learn them and then apply.

Looking for advice—currently a senior in a transformation role at a Big 4 firm and will likely be promoted to manager this year. A BCG recruiter reached out about an opportunity in their risk practice. More interested in transformation work but BCG has a great brand and I’m curious if it’s a opportunity seriously worth pursuing. Generally speaking, I’m content where I’m at but who wouldn’t love a new challenge/more $? Any thoughts on BCG risk? Is the money at MBB really that much more?
