Senior Accountant in Topeka:
"CPA And Work History."
It is important to understand the impact on your career if you do not obtain a CPA license. It can mean the difference between being hired or not. Also, it seems that employers look for and value experience in the public sector even when they are in the private sector.
Get your CPA and work for a while in a traditional public accounting firm. It will do you good in the job market later on.
