I have two years of internal audit experience in a 500 company and I am relocating to a financial analyst role within the company. However, I think I still need the public accounting experience in big4 to get a long-term competency. I want to apply big 4 staff auditor after I pass the rest two CPA exams. I know I can’t get the experienced auditor position since I don’t have public accounting experience. I had my master in accounting. Will I be qualified for the entry level auditor in big4?

Just completed my credits to take the CPA and have started studying.. working in auditing rn.. not sure either is right for me. Any advice? I really am generally more interested in finance over accounting, if that makes sense. But I have an offer at big 4 for audit and feel like I shouldn’t turn that down.. Is Big 4 a good thing to do for a year, get on my resume and such, or is it a waste of time? And should I take this CPA if it may not involve my long-term career goals/path?

Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
