Hi, I'm currently in the process of figuring out my next career move and would like some help/advice from this community. I switched careers from being a chemist to an accountant 2 years ago, when I joined a small 4-person operation and started from scratch.
Since then, I have accrued 2 years of experience, and have passed 2 of the 4 required examinations to certification. I am hoping [crossing fingers] to pass my examinations this coming summer in july and find a new job where I can get more experience and grow within my career.
With that said, I am wondering if I should start searching now, and interview when given the chance [even if I am not yet certified]. If so, what can I do with a non-accounting degree and 2 years of entry level experience?
Or would it be a better idea to start searching once certification is secure, and I have a stronger case to lean on?
Also, what would you consider to be the ideal way to search for the right jobs? Should I find a headhunter? Post resumes on sites like this, hotjobs, monster, etc?
Thanks in advance for all your advice and insight. I really wish to do well within this field, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
