Remaining loyal to one employer forever is a thing of the past. It’s not that loyal CPAs don’t exist, but the standard trajectory for careers is different than it used to be. In today’s world, changing employers is often seen as a way to get to the next level of compensation and value you expect for your skillset. Switching employers is no longer seen as a negative to your career growth; it’s almost expected and even seen as beneficial.
If you’re thinking about changing firms or moving to business and industry, make sure you have a plan in place.
