Transferring from Tax to IT advisory?

I am an Accounting and Information Systems Double degree, and I will be graduating in December 2017. This past summer, I interned at a BIG 4 firm in tax services. Currently, I have received and accepted my offer; however, I have recently come to realize that I find more interest information systems. I have not received any further emails regarding my starting date.

Does anyone have experience with changing from tax to advisory? And, is there a possible way for me transfer service lines within the same firm? I personally think that I could be more valuable in IT/Tech advisory. My experience and time with the firm solely consists of my internship period.
