Assistant Controller in Las Vegas:
"Don't delay in getting public accounting experience."
I did not get public accounting experience right out of college. I ultimately passed the CPA exam and met the necessary experience requirements to obtain my license, but it was extremely challenging considering the fact that I was working full time while working towards my license. I would definitely recommend that anyone coming out of school with an accounting degree should take a position with a public firm to obtain the necessary experience hours for CPA licensure as soon as possible.

To begin your accounting career, put in your time at a large corporation in their accounting pool (assuming you don't go to work directly for the Big 4).

Learn how to leverage and delegate for 2 years, then find a growing company that can use your honed skill set.
