Thanks for the advice guys..I'm still just shocked that the assumption is that everyone who starts in accounting never leaves it, or can't be good at anything else. When you say advisory, what do you mean? Are you referring to the transaction advisory services (TAS) and/or valuation services provided by the big 4? The first thing that seems wrong is you have no idea what you want to do or any sort of plan. Do you ultimately want to end up working in the corporate world? Private equity? Etc.
