I'm hoping to learn about possible options (other than audit/tax) for a graduate who is hoping to join one of the big 4. Specifically, I'd like to hear from those who have experience with accounting advisory and valuation positions- how you like your job and the possible exit opportunities associated with each. Students have gone the CMAAS route from the MAcc program I will be entering, but I'm not aware of many who have gone the valuation route. Does anyone have any tips from their experience on networking their way into a position that the firms do not directly recruit for at your school?
Just trying to be as informed as possible. I appreciate any comments, thanks!
