I'm a second year accounting student. I currently work as an
accountant for a medium-sized insurance company. Every now and then I
see these posts of people who can't find jobs as accountants or regret
taking accounting as their major. These posts kind of worry me a
bit...but are these just the complaints of a small population, or do
these reflect the majority of the accounting world?
The other thing I wanted to ask was about being recruited by a big
four firm...Like I said I already work as an accountant, and my firm
was hopping that I stay after I finish college, (I am going for my
masters). Prior to working with them, I was an accountant with a
construction / real estate company, even though I've always wanted to
be a CPA I've come to enjoy working in these smaller environments so
what I'm asking is, not working for a big-four firm a career killer?
or can you still be successful in the accounting world even if you
don't work for a big-four type firm?
Thanks for your responses!
