Big 4 from industry

Hello GC,

I am curious if you think Big 4 would hire me in above 1st year associate. I have 3 years experience auditing financial information inside my company, so not true financial statement audits. I have a BS and MS in Accounting, a CPA license, and a CIA certification. I went to industry first because:

I needed a job, bad;
I still needed credits to be CPA eligible;
Job paid for MS to obtain said credits, along with license and certification.

So once school is over and CPE is up to date, I have crappy wages and Awesome health insurance, which doesn’t pay my bills.
