Career move after 1 year in grad big4

Tweety

Hi All

After almost a year at one of the big four I am convinced that IT auditing is not for me and I do not enjoy the work at all which is all we do.

Some recruitment lady rang me up offering me to go for an interview so I thought what do I got to loose. The interview went quite well and got offered a position with a good salary. The work is more technical and what I would enjoy. Google www.twenty57.com

Just needed some advise as I am so unsure of what I must do. Loosing such a big brand and going for a smaller company is quite a trade off.

Anyone got some advice or been in the same position? Response will be highly appreciated

Get out. The "brand" is the vice into which many large companies insert your testicles in order to keep you doing work you hate.

You've worked this out. Don't fall for it a second time. Go do work that a) you enjoy, b) pays well, c) both.

PS, learn the differenec between "loose" and "lose". Its a petty mistake but tells people something about you....

Good luck

Sorry about that Mr Cool.

Do you think it would damage my CV working for a year then moving after my first job?

Cynic to Tweety (#4)

Also, you are looking for "advice" rather than "advise".

I know this is a discussion board, but Mr Cool is right in saying that such petty mistakes do tell people something about you...

Mr Cool to Tweety (#4)

No. The only issue will be if for some reason you then don't like the new job - in that case you WILL need to see it through for at least 2 years or else you'll look like a job hopper/quitter.

One year in IT audit, progressing to a few years in IT "proper" is a perfectly explainable progression and would have quite a open career path in the future.

Hypocrisy... to Mr Cool (#6)

Mr (sic) Cool,

'PS (sic), learn the differenec (sic) between "loose" and "lose. Its (sic) a petty mistake but tells people something about you..."'

Please could you do me a favour and look up the meaning of hypocrisy. I agree that the difference between 'loose' and 'lose' is a very well defined one. However, please don't go preaching about mistakes that could very easily have been a typo when your own post is littered with mistakes that obviously aren't.

It tells me far more about you than the original poster.

Mr (Sick) Cool to Hypocrisy... (#7)

Hi Hippocrates

Thank’s for that. My tiping is pretty pure so I’m always happy to hear how to improove – alternitavely I could always use a secretery – wood you be interested?

Typos on a forum are not a big deal – its one up from txt msging. The OP however, twice misused the word “loose” where he clearly meant “lose”. Spellcheck stops typos and punctuation errors from carrying over into professional documents, but will not catch malopropisms, eggcorns or plain misuse.

It was a friendly pointer, simply because he’d made the same mistake twice and thus I presumed he was unaware of it.

Oh, and here's the apostrophe I owe you ('). Now do me a favour and stick it up your a.....

Hypocrisy... to Mr (Sick) Cool (#9)

You actually owe me another apostrophe... You meant to write "it's" in your middle paragraph.

Don't worry about it though, it's just a friendly pointer, simply because you made the same mistake twice and thus I presume you are unaware of it.

Also...an ellipsis should only ever be three dots

A sentence should end in a full stop.
