I am currently at a B4 in their internal services department. I am halfway through the CPA exam and should be done in the next few months. My hope is to transfer to Tax once I have my CPA, and I’d prefer to stay with my current firm. I have talked to a few recruiters and they have told me that this does not happen often. I’m currently in a senior position making 75k, but am willing to go back to staff because I know I can move up fast. I’m wondering if anyone can tell me which is the best option: 1) continue to pursue transfer into the Tax department within my current firm 2) go to a smaller firm or possibly another B4 3) go back to school and get a MAcc or MBA and go through the recruiting process 4) give up altogether because this is starting to look impossible.
