For perm job. Applied for advisory roles but nothing after online test for kp and no updates from ey at all so far.
I think don't fret. I haven't received any notification for interview from EY, KP and PWC for perm job either...

Hi guys

Just gotten an interview for Financial services tax from EY. Would really love to hear some insights into this area. How different is it from Corporate tax?

its always good to have an interview instead of just looking at the paper qualifications.

Would like to know this also, out of curiosity. So far I only know that tax is a very specialised skillset, so can't turn back. Also less exit opportunities.
Yap, tax is a rather specialised area

It seems like most people enter mid-tier firms hoping to jump to Big 4. Would it be worth entering mid-tier firms to hop to commercial, considering you have to sign a bond, work Big 4 hours, yet do not benefit from the brand recognition of Big 4?
