Senior Accountant Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
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.
Senior Accountant in Columbus:
"Much Responsibility And Tight Deadlines."
Be prepared to work long hours. Not necessarily extra time, but mentally long hours. Sometimes I just need a break after working 3 hours. Others I can work 12 hours and be fine.

"It Can Involve Long Hours When In The Corporate World."
