If I go small audit firm, does it mean harder to join MNC in future?
I only have ACCA, no degree... Dunno if small firm is my only option.
I obvi want join b4 bc of the name sake but I know a lot of competition and most places alr reserve for local U students
I got offer from small firm but really not sure if should take or keep looking/waiting

best to take it first as some of the Big 4 have already implemented hiring freezes and other measures.

you can always re-apply to the Big 4 as an experienced hire.

In normal times, I will say dont bother with the small firm. Now that times are bad, got job very good already. But a worst of caution. Small firm clients are the SMEs, so they are more vulnerable to a poor economy. If big 4 already feeling the pain, small firms will feel even more pain.

I have been in a b4 for awhile and I can tell u that things ain't looking too rosy right now with this covid 19 situation. We're taking a defensive approach and hiring freeze across almost all lines. I think having a job is better than no job in this current economic environment.
