First off, I'd like to thank everyone for providing such helpful advice and insights throughout this site. I've been in public accounting for over 20 years now, and am considering a rather drastic career change. This site has provided much needed background to help me refine my goals, and I thank you all for that.
About me (long story short):
- Graduated Summa Cum Laude from Harvard (class of 1990 with a BS in Business Administration)
- Married in 1988, had my first child in 1989
- Started a long career with Touche Ross (which merged into today's & Touche) in 1990, during which I specialized in the audits of small to mid-size industrial manufacturing entities. I am currently a Senior Manager, and have client engagements ranging from a regional tire retread plant in New Mexico to a lumber processor in Georgia. While it's been a fruitful and interesting journey, 3 years ago I was told that I'm not likely to become a Partner, and began to look to get out of the audit game!
- I was recently divorced. With the kids out of the house, and no wife to answer to, I'm ready to take on a more aggressive and rewarding career, and have settled on I-Banking as the avenue to do so.
So, I'm looking to leverage my experience as best I can, and am looking for internships in I-Banking. I'm not willing to settle, and would really only be interested in, MS, etc. I'm currently located in Albuquerque, NM, and will consider relocation given the right compensation package.
Any tips or experiences you all can relate would be much appreciated! I'm just looking to find out where to start.
