Here's a conundrum from the mailbag that came in over the weekend:
I received a masters in economics in May 2013 but afterwards I started developing an interest in accounting classes so I took extra accounting classes to meet the requirements for the CPA exam. I am now scheduled to take the FAR exam next month. I don't have any work experience in accounting but should passing the CPA exam help with my job searching for an accounting job? I am willing to work for a big or small firm, and work as an associate or intern.
