Why are you kids so obsessed with the qualifications anyway? Your membership fee costs more than the extra pay you get from having one and I'll be honest, that almost never happens. Just focus on getting your technicals down and build domain knowledge in useful industries. I've been reviewing case study assignments from candidates who are audit associates and they're genuinely terrible quality-wise in the sense that there's no logic, there's inconsistencies and random boxes everywhere.

Let's be honest, with such complete lack of attention to detail, you won't be making partner in PA anyway so you'll do fine without any certs.

Your CV is important - its basically what will land you the interview to begin with, after that its how you sell yourself to say this is how you can value add. FP&A isn't really that different from audit which is how so many people made the switch in the past.

The real issue is
1) a good majority of auditors are crap nowadays, and the world knows it. the client has been dealing with auditors since the beginning of time and has seen quality fall off a cliff. (just look at how the quality of posts in this forum has eroded over time)
2) there are more people coming out of grad joining FP&A directly to avoid the audit hellhole resulting in lesser openings (or why more roles require FP&A exp)
Any advice to make my CV standout aside from showing skills in financial modelling, stakeholder management, and SQL/Dashboarding? I'm already following the recommended resume template by Harvard and the writing style.

After 3yoe is more like specialist alrdy. U mainly stuck there for good because pay diff and skill required not much value adding to other role. Year 3 or 4 is best to run from audit.
Are there much differences in terms of job scope between senior 1 and senior 2 in yellow?
It seems like the same job scope across senior 1 to 3. Staying longer does not value add for commercial roles right?

to join jr position as in fpa roles ? So, does it mean that the 3 years in audit do not add much value? we are better off starting in FPA?

I am the original poster who asked whether shall i do the CPA Aus.

Tbh, i am not sure how it will help me in my career.
Sometime it is just everyone have it , so with the kiasu mindset, you will want to have it as well.
The professional qualifications will just be testament on my knowledge and my experience as i already in my mid 30s (9 years in audit , left during SM , take slight paycut for regional finance role)

When you reach certain stage in your career, you just want to have something that you dont have.
