  • Has been a partner, moved to industry, and now seeks a return to public accounting
  • Has worked in Dallas, moved to another city, and now seeks to return to Dallas
  • Is a partner, or nearly a partner, but is blocked from advancing due to a cluster of more senior people
  • Seeks a more friendly, collegiate atmosphere – a place where professionals take their work seriously, but don’t take themselves too seriously
