I've got a MBA with concentration in finance, and have worked in IT for the past ten years. I'm thinking of switching to getting a CPA, I only need to take a few more courses to qualify to sit for the exam.

What is the job situation for CPA's with little accounting experience in Chicago? (I did prepare taxes for many years, but part time)

1. big 4 experience
2. CPA license

if you have both, you should be able to get a decent job; if you have big 4 experience, you should get a good job; if CPA license only, you will get a job.

$60,000 above decent job in a large corporate; $70,000 or higher with SEC experience.
$50,000 above good job in a medium size company
$50,000 below small company

Job market is getting better but still very challenge.
