I am thinking of changing careers from financial planning and forecasting and going into a Big 4 firm. I am not sure what the right role for me is. I have 8 years of progressive financial analyst experience, ending as a finance manager. My responsabilities includ: FP&A, foregin exchange risk management, collections, forecasting, variance analysis, enforcing contracts, setting up controls, international expat assigments, and much more.
I have a Macct and was supposed to go into Big 4 originally, but got a more interesting offer from a Fortune 200 company and decided to go with them. Salary is about 175k. But the nature of my company means I dont have a stable life and I am considering a career change. I am looking at what options are out there. I can sit for the CPA, but I havent passed any of the tests.
I have some questions:
What area in consulting would I do best in?
What position would I be qualified for (Staff, Senior, etc)?
How do I get in touch with an inhouse recruiter?
Any other advise?
Pass the CPA?
I really appreciate the help.
