Career Ideas for a burned-out CPA
If this topic is being discussed elsewhere please let me know and I will move my question over there. I am an ex-. I left Big 4 hell in 2015 to start working in the Energy sector. I have worked for two different firms over this time period. I am feeling burned out with Accounting and pretty much despise it at this point, my next move within the accounting field would likely be either an Assistant Controller or a Controller role. Although the pay bump would be nice it would likely amount to more of the same or worse...I am trying to figure out if there are any other realistic options for me, that I wouldn't hate as much without having to go back to school and start from scratch? I don't know anybody who loves accounting, logically I need to think that at least some of these people leave Accounting entirely and find something else. Any suggestions or help would be great. Thanks!
