(Continued) I’m not interested in traveling for much longer because I have young kids, so moving to a better firm or trying to get into something more aligned to my interests (more strategy, less implementation) is probably not going to work. I had hoped the MBA would have helped open doors to a more fulfilling path, but being a project manager for technology related stuff isn’t any better than the industry I left pre-MBA. I’m genuinely at a loss at what my current role is preparing me for in terms of future jobs.

What technologies? Where are you located?

A consultant in the classic sense (I.e not implementation), or an industry expert would be preferable to what I’m doing now. I had 10 years experience in my previous industry so there’s that.

I would say a program in the low 20s is still a target depending on where you wanna go. Try federal consulting for non travel (ie booz Allen)

I work at a small size organization and currently work as an EA but of course do many other things because of the size of the organization. I am trying to expand my role and take on more responsibility around culture and innovation, I want to hear what everyone’s thoughts are about what creates engagement and great culture environment, what you see and what you’d like to see? Innovative ideas in all areas.

After a year in public accounting, I’m thinking this ain’t it for me. When we were in the office and on site at clients it was amazing, but I have been doing all my audit work from home since March and feel like I haven’t learned anything, and every day is miserable. I have one CPA exam section left and I honestly just want to collect my $5k bonus and bail. Do you think they would try to recollect that money if I were to do that? Things could change, but I’m looking at this possibility.
