Hi all! Currently working as a senior project manager in an ad agency. Started in January but haven't enjoyed it as much as I thought. Rather than growing my skills in project management, it feels like I'm an admin for the team. I'm hoping to pivot industries and continue my project management career. If you have any referrals for project management would love to hear from you. Please send them my way!

Has anyone made the leap from Corporate accounting/Financial reporting to something more niche like Revenue Reporting? I work in SEC reporting but want to work somewhere more diverse/fast paced/in the saas world and am considering a revenue reporting manager position at a tech company.
I haven’t worked in revenue before and am not super familiar with 606 so I don’t know if I would flop but I’m a CPA with 8+ yes experience (mix of PA/corporate experience)
More than likely receiving an offer for a more technical position than I’d like in my career. In short, I think it pigeonholes me into a role I’m not comfortable with and have little interest for.
How do I politely reject the offer when it comes through?
Really interested in a job a recruiter brought me. However apparently the dept hiring and HR are now in conflict as HR wasn't notified the dept hired a recruiter and HR doesn't wanna pay the recruiter. Anyone experienced this?
What amount of money would you need to be offered from another company to leave (talk in terms of percentage increase in salary and include your level at the firm)? I’m passively looking and am curious what offer would be considered too good to pass up as an AY2.
does anyone know where to get good resume review/help? Haven’t updated mine since college and don’t know what I still need on there or should take off
Ok fishbowl family - I need advice. Rising senior 1 here and realizing that I genuinely get no joy out of audit. I’m way too stressed and really do not care about accounting and have made it a life goal to never book a journal entry. I want to take the next year to figure out what my dream job is and go for it. Here’s what I like: I love talking to people, mentoring & teaching, organizing, learning. I literally loved everything in college- I was between majoring in accounting or psychology. 1/X
I applied at this company and last Friday they verified my references. And then 4 days later hiring manager sets up a phone conversation letting me know they still have other finalist they are interviewing and will let me know when t they make a decision. I really wanted this job and now idk if I’ll even get it. But my question, why would she verify my references and not offer me the job!is that normal ? This never happened to me before 😞
My glowing review, complete with the “It’s not a matter of ‘if’ you’ll make partner, but ‘when’” line, resulted in a $4,000 salary increase. For the third year in a row.
I billed 200 more hours than last year and earned another certification. Now at $76k in a low to mid COL area. Top 25 firm.
Is it time to jump ship?
I loathe tax, I want to work to live not live to work. Switching fields means starting all over again. I feel torn. Anyone have success stories? Advice?
How hard is it to move from audit to internal audit / risk advisory? Are the hours better? Willing to switch firms if it’s easier to do so.
I do enjoy audit but this life is not sustainable.
Anyone mind sharing what they left PA for? Trying to get some ideas here, I’m in tax but would appreciate any non-standard exit opps too!
S1 tax in Boston, intending to relocate to Pittsburgh for personal reasons. I'm expecting a pay rate decrease due to COL difference. Any advice appreciated. Referral, recruiting forms to avoid, etc...
Currently in M&A tax. I do a lot of cross-functional PMO work and I’m looking to leave and get my MBA due to reduced earning potential from COVID & I’ve seen the work Dev. Ops / management does and I’m a lot more interested in that than in tax. 2.5years at uncle D, no CPA(halfway done). Should I finish out the CPA and apply for MBA later? Should I just try and get into dev ops without an mba/CPA? Or is my earning potential a lot less without it?
Have a third and final interview for a senior accountant position tomorrow with the director of tax in industry. I previously spoke to the director and CFO. Is this is a formality? What should I expect? Any thoughts are appreciated.
On job descriptions are the years of experienced required section usually accurate or recruiters trying to get overqualified candidates? Let’s say I want to apply for a position that requires 4 but I have 3.
Starting to receive some interview invites. Going from PA to industry. When is benefit/bonus/salary discussed? First round with the recruiters? Or it won’t be discussed until the final round? Do I bring it up myself or the they will ask about it?
What’s the difference between what auditors and advisory (FAAS) do when it comes to working on IPOs and SPAC projects?

There’s lots of back office accounting jobs at GS…
I once saw someone from tax get a non-tax job. Pretty wild.
Yeah right let’s not lie here…
Girl I know got a family office tax job paying $1M a year. Barely works overtime. I try not to think about it.
There are some out there and you usually hear about them via headhunters. This was in NYC but they are out in LA, SF, Seattle as well.
Nothing too crazy but saw someone go from audit senior to fp&a manager at a F250. And we don’t know a thing about FP&A in the audit side let alone manage an FP&A team.
That’s really motivating! I think everyone eventually wants to get out of PA and Audit. 99% dont become partner and audit can be very unstimulating after a few busy seasons. Although I really do believe Audit is a good fundamental skill for learning about business from top to bottom.
last year an M1 i know (3months as an M1 and 4.5 YOE overall) got a tax director role with morgan stanley. thought that was wild lol
I also know another person who only did two years of FS audit get into MM investment banking.
I’m currently going from tax to private equity/credit
Tax manager I worked with went to a small company as CFO. Another tax senior from our team went to a car dealership as a controller.
