Transitioning into Transaction Advisory
First time post here so I'm going to keep it concise, detailed and insightful where possible:
- Graduated from an elite Australian University with decent (credits) marks.
Completed two degrees - Commerce (Accounting Major) and Information Technology (Business Information Systems)
Graduated with almost 3 years relevant work experience within both IT and Accounting having started in retail sales then successfully progressing to work at a small accounting firm, IBM, venture backed start-up firms and eventual succeed into my current role in Big 4 Accounting (Sydney).
Succeeded into a unique program in which ONE (1) person is taken into each year where I simultaneously work across audit and IT consulting within the firm within financial services
Big financial bonus at the end of 5 years throughout this program (approx 2 years finished it)
Studying Chartered Accounting (CA) post grad with 2/4 units completed
Scheduled to study CISA in late 2015/early 2016
Made plays to move into more Transactional advisory services within the firm looking at the IT elements of deals with a view of moving away from audit based work and more into consulting/ buy-sell analysis
Anyone have any advice on my Going-forward?
