A six-figure starting salary, and generous vacation time (28 to 35 days off after a year of service) will liven up competition for the 30 to 40 spots at this Big Four accounting firm. The New York-based company does an expansive recruiting effort for new senior advisors, including stops at Emory University, Notre Dame University and the University of Texas at Austin. Experience conducting focus groups and willingness to travel (which is estimated at 80%) are pluses.
