I got my IS degree and have been working in IT (as a web & database developer) for past 13 years. I also have BS in Accounting. Is there anyone who made the switch from IT to Accounting ? Any recommendations ?

Thanks

I am kinda in the same boat, I have been in IT for the past 7 years and I now want to switch to accounting. I am now 33 is this a wise move?

There are positions in Accounting where having the IT background would be helpful, however to start in Accounting you would probably have to take a pay cut. Also, some companies really want that Accounting degree - so you may want to give some thought to getting your Post-degree in Accounting. (Usually takes 2 yrs).
