As a Manager, I feel I need to know what is going on around to better position myself and the team within the context of the project and the client. But I feel extroverts do a better job on that.

What jobs to people look at when going to industry after working in Risk Advisory? I have my CPA but I honestly don’t really feel like I know much about accounting (studied for the test, not to retain the info) and wouldn’t really want to continue doing Risk Advisory considering I’m leaving the role. Just not sure what else is out there since I feel like our work is very specific to IA and serving clients, how does that switch to private?

In some situations I think I’m pretty socially awkward, particularly I never know what to say when someone mentions a family member passing. I was on a video call with 2 project team members and at the end one mentioned she’s attending a funeral for a family member passing. I’ve been with this project team for about 9 months now. The other guy said a few things and expressed his condolences. I just froze even though I knew I should say something but said nothing, and she wrapped the call..
