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!

I’ve heard The Siegfried Group pays a lot better than the Big 4 but the numbers don’t seem to be making sense to me.

To the fish who have exited from big 4 pre-mba into corporate strategy roles: What kind of salaries did you typically see when you left? I’ve heard that you shouldn’t leave without a 20% raise, but most recruiters for these roles claim a “cap” around $95K-$100K. Which means a 7-12% raise over my current consulting salary. Am I unrealistic for wanting my salary around $106K-$110K?

Coming from a big 4 - Can we mention the names of the clients we have worked with over the years when interviewing?

If it is a past project and you do not give any client sensitive information is it OK to share the names of the brands that you've worked with in your previous role? What's standard?

So I started a new job about a month ago and I’m having a very hard time adjusting which is leading ti my anxiety going up.

I am currently interning at one of the Big 4's for the Summer. However, I received an email to go to EY's 2022 Futures Conference from July 26th to 29th.

Hey, Chi. First time caller.

So I'm considering a switch from law to consulting, and noticed EY has started posting salary ranges for positions. All the mid- to senior-level jobs I'm looking at are in the $95k to $150k range. Is that right? True for all the big 4? Seems super low. I guess I never thought about it before but how exactly do you folks get paid?
