Create Your Path from the Big Four to Private Sector Accounting
Public Accounting, especially Big Four or at a Regional firm, is a tremendous foundation for a successful
career in accounting, finance, and investment banking. While some make a career in public accounting,
many talented public accounting professionals enhance their careers by moving into private sector
accounting after gaining two to eight years of experience. At Stephen James Associates, we are CPAs and former
public accounting professionals that have been through the transition from public accounting to find success in the private sector.
When you have decided on a career in private sector accounting, let Stephen James Associates guide you
to that destination. We will share our knowledge of the job market:
- Which skills are most in demand
- Compensation ranges offered by various industries
- Companies on the rise
- How to best market the skills you've gained
If you are uncertain about a career after a Big Four firm at this time, seek our advice
on how to further develop your skills in your current firm, assignments to strive for, technical and
leadership traits to develop. We are here to partner with you, so we invite you to establish a
relationship with one of our recruiters.
Remember, changing jobs or careers is a process. The more you know, the more time
you allow, the more you establish your professional network (of which a recruiting firm should
be an integral part), the better your chances of realizing success.
Why Stephen James? We are part of the Allegis Group, the largest staffing company in the US.
We have a network of industry contacts and access to resources unmatched by any other firm.
Since we are former accounting and finance professionals ourselves, we bring an unparalleled
level of ethics, professionalism and trust to our relationships with candidates and clients alike.
Our greatest reward is bringing great organizations and great people together. We look forward to
learning more about you and assisting with your goals to find a fulfilling position in private sector accounting.
