Go to M&A..get out of controls work. You could also go to management consulting

Thanks for the advice, what would be the best position/firm for someone like me (CPA + Risk/Controls background) in management consulting?

More internal controls work. Not sure what the highest level of internal controls position is in industry.

I can’t do control forever man, I’m so over it. I think the highest position would be Director/VP in ICFR/SOX programs in industry

You’ve either got to commit to a career in IA or prepare to majorly sell yourself in interviews to pull off a big transition to another job (if you want out of DT).

If you want out your SOX experience will help you to be able to talk high level to someone about almost anything in finance but a lot of jobs just won’t touch you since you don’t have any JE experience. Just have to be patient and find the right fit.

I want to stay in DT and move to M&A within advisory

Would love to get insight from anyone who works in healthcare admin. I recently just got my MBA with a concentration in healthcare management and currently am working as a Practice Manager at a primary care office. Granted it’s my first “mid” role, I do feel I’m being underpaid even though this was a promotion. I have also realized I would rather work in a corporate/client-facing position vs patient-facing. Any tips/advice on how to make that change & what you’re making as a practice manager! TY

Hi, I have a five interview offsite at Amazon for the business insights analyst role.
