What is the key to making these transitions? For example, what skillset should you be familiar with in order to become a qualified senior accountant? And what about becoming a manager?
Also, how do you get the experience to become a good manager? Do they formally train you with what you need to know? Or do you just kinda pick up things on your own and hope for the best?
These are just examples, but interested in overall feedback about how to get ahead in both public and private accounting. Please indicate if your response applies to public/private, large firm/small firm, and the general location as well.
