Dinah in Reno, Nevada

67 months ago

Hello, I am approximately 30 weeks from graduating with a BS in Accounting. I am a resident of Nevada where 2 years of auditing experience is required to take the CPA exam. Ideally I would like to pursue CPA status and a Master's Degree in either Finance or Tax.

In terms of career interests I am intrigued by financial analytics, business/tax planning, or wealth management. I am not necessarily interested in filing tax returns for HR Block or standard bookkeeping as a long term endeavour.

Would anyone be able to give some advise regarding the best possible course of action in terms of the parameters I have loosely listed?

Additionally, is it advisable in this market to begin job searching now with 30 weeks left to acquire the BS degree?

Is it best to pursue auditing and the CPA status first and later worry about the idea career track?

I appreciate any help regarding this matter and thank you for your time!
