The question comes from a budding CPA but surely there are would-be bankers, traders, hedge fund managers out there asking themselves the same thing, looking for an answer before it's too late.

Hey [redacted girl at Deloitte],

We talked a couple weeks back at the [university] accounting night. (I was the one looking for equity research positions and had a zit on my lip that could have passed for a cold sore. Lol. Whew. It was not. You're probably like, "uh.. What?" Maybe that helps you recall, maybe not. Not completely important, I suppose.

Anyways, if you have a chance here is my question: (background first) I interviewed with [one accounting firm] and [another accounting firm] today, two firms that seem like good places to work, I believe they don't kill you like a big 4. Tomorrow I have an interview with Deloitte :O somewhere I thought I've always wanted to work. Obviously I don't have an offer so this is all hypothetical thinking, but if I get the job, the reality of the situation is that I'm getting old. 25. I know you can't force love and I know it just comes when you're not looking, but would working for a big four completely squash any possibilities for potential relationships if one came along? Is working for a big four a potential career - love trade off? I mean, I like money (as do most females) but love is...great :) What are your thoughts?

Thanks!
