I began my second career, after finishing an accounting program, as a state auditor three years ago. I'd like to work as an accountant in private industry but am not sure how to get started. I've done a lot of fianancial/operational audits, but I'm not sure if that would be desirable for accounting positions.
I'm in my mid-forties and will need to work for many years. I say that because I'd like to travel before I'm too old to enjoy it and would like to combine work with travel by doing consulting work, and would truly like to begin gaining skills and experience to prepare myself.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
