as we know there are only 7 vacancies in chicago and someone got a call and naturally they will call all 7 candidate at the sametime. that what i guess and reality may differ. what do you think ???

no albany office,they said i would be getting letter in the mail then i told them my situation that im not in town (which im really not)so they asked me whether i would be in town soon i told them not till end of this month n she was very kind to tell me that she can go through the selected candidates list n let me known,so thats how i came to know..
so my guess is i think they would be done by today calling the selected candidates, im not sure though ...
i think if u r really want to know i would say go ahead n give them a call atlesat ull known whats happening n its nothing to loose if u call .. good luck..

My score was 100, I have two bachelors, will start grad school in the fall, and I felt that my interview went very well. I've also worked at an accounting firm doing pretty much the same thing, but it was only for chicago and the surrounding counties. That gave me great experience. After the first like two weeks of not hearing anything I became less optimistic, but then they called. You'll find something! There are 49 other states to apply with! Good luck to you!

Chi in New York, New York said: I interviewed at the Manhattan and BK locations.

FYI do you have a chat name?

hey, i interviewed for the manhattan and brooklyn location too. I haven't heard back from manhattan but brooklyn gave me an offer. The thing is I'm not sure if i should take it cause I heard working in government accounting isn't as good as working in public accounting. What do you guys think?

I have the same concern, but all the people I talked to advise me to take the job...because at this point, having a job is better than none, at least you will get some experience. Besides, this job would qualify for the CPA experience requirement

I believe if only the corporate income tax section will qualify for the experience and the sales tax and investigation section will not. They accepted me to the sales tax division. So that's another reason why I'm uncertain whether taking this job is worth it.

to help you deside. Do you want a job or CPA experience? After you work for the state you can not work for the private sector after 2 years.

Do you know if there is a time limit of when you need to get the CPA experience by? Is working for a pubic accounting firm considered the private sector?

there is no time limit. But you must summit your application for NYS by 8/1/2009. If you only have a BA/BS.

o yeah i forgot about that...i got accepted into corporate.
I am almost positive there is no time limit on getting the CPA experience. I don't think public accounting firms are considered as private sector because I have heard of people switching from gov to public.
fyi...how did you find out the 2 years "probation" from private sector?

For NYS here is the link. www.op.nysed.gov/cpalic.htm and go to requirements. It would give you all the info. I use to work for NYS Tax before, and that was my problem. But in today's market, think. A job or CPA. That is all.

So from your personal experience, do you think it's better to get the job or the CPA experience? I heard it's less likely that a public accounting firm will hire you if you came out from govt accounting.

Hey, my tax professor got back to me and she told me that she knows of professionals who started in government and found jobs in public accounting. As for the 2 year probation, I'm not really sure on what that includes.

They actually called me to make the offer and asked me on the spot if I was still interested. I'm not sure if that was considered as accepting the offer because I said I was, but I didn't sign any papers or anything. She said she will send some papers to me. It was quite vague.

yeah I read the 2 yrs probation thing...it really doesn't explain much.
the papers they sent u in the mail are just direct deposit form, I9, W4 etc...i hope they won't make us sign a 2 yrs contract.
Did your professor say if those people find a job in tax or audit?

She didn't say what jobs they were specifically. She just told me that she knows of professionals who started in government and found jobs later in cpa firms.
