Just need some advice and suggestions on how I should approach my accounting future. I finished my MBA - Accounting from Keller (Graduate division of Devry) about 2 years ago. I have a really good GPA (3.7), and I have some years of experience of accounting in private industries under my belt (3 years of being staff accountant). I really want to get into public accounting, and I have tried and tried to breakthrough with no avail. Networking and job assistance at Keller/DeVry is a joke... I sometimes regret going there...
As for the CPA exam, I am working on them right now. None passed so far, but I am really aiming for finishing it by the end of this year.
Something that piqued my interest recently is that CSUN is offering a Master's in Accounting program this fall, and with a 7/31st deadline, I can still get into it right now if I wanted to.
My question is, should I go back and get another master's for the whole chance of getting networking and interning opportunities? It feels like it might be a waste of a $20000, to $30000 just for that... but then again, I spent $50000 at Keller/DeVry for hopes of getting into public accounting with no result...
Does anyone have advice on how I can get my foot in the door into public accounting?
Any feedback will be appreciated!
