Today's job market is a dog-eat-dog environment. You are competing against global candidates, ever younger, ever more technologically competent, ever more willing to work for less. But are you aware that you have a special "ticket in the door" as a part of the Big4? Think of it like this: you have paid your "union dues" by being a part of the most prestigious and demanding consulting companies in the world. You have learned how to tackle problems in the moment, create innovative solutions, execute strategies with precision, and you have been a part of every cutting-edge consulting or auditing technique used in the workplace today. When you prepare your next resume, you want to mention right up front that you are a Big4 person. This is like making an "Aha!" statement for the reader, who will instantly recognize that you have been trained by the best, and it makes your resume go to the top of the pile. When you are developing your resume, consider how best to describe your Big4 expertise and try to express it in terms of your work values. For example, "Audited Fortune 50 companies achieving solid end results using current tax law and IRS codes and evaluating firm procedures based on federal guidelines and industry ethical practices." The more you emphasize the outcomes you achieved and the training you received while a part of the Big4, the better your chances of rising to the top of that stack of resumes facing the hiring manager. So don't forget to mention every training class you took, as well. As they say, if you've got it, flaunt it. You have the best credentials in the world - use them to secure that next great job.
