Is this at the analyst level or associate?
Not sure…whichever is more junior
Is this at a big 4 accting firm, regional accting firm, or independent valuation firm?
this is a small firm.
If you’re doing client interaction and business development, it’s not that junior.
This sounds like a typical BV role, but it is a bit surprising that you would potentially be valuing public companies if this is in fact a small firm.
I work in valuation. Feel free to e-mail me at the address below with any specific questions. cstall at umich.edu
