I'm just starting Accounting classes this Fall. (I already had a previous professional career and am switching careers.) So, the world of public accounting is new to me, and I'm trying to navigate it.
I like to map out my career to the best of my ability, so that I can make good decisions from the start. I'm very driven, and would like to eventually become a Partner or CFO. So, I'd appreciate any advice on these topics.
Thank you!

Get your CPA and start in public accounting. The bigger the firm the better.
