Big 4 Career Direction

Hey Everyone,

I have a question about getting expeience in the Big4. I'm in tax and have become more and more focused on individuals. I have a few major partnerships and like…2 small corporate provisions as well, but the majority of my experience is coming from individuals. My issue is, I don't want to be pigeon holed this early in my career (year 2) into individual work. My question is, what are the exit ops for people with extensive individual experience. Should I throw myself at other work? Is there a stigma about people that focus on individuals in the big 4? Would I stand a chance at landing a corporate gig? (I'm a CPA, if that matters at all)

 

Thanks!
