See Me Series: The Enigma of This Stigma: Online Education
with Mikayla Smith
The career path of a public accountant is pretty straight forward and seems to be well mapped out for most: Get accepted into a university with an accredited accounting program -> Chose that as your major -> During your second or third year, start attending career fairs and conversing with recruiters about potential employment -> Satisfy the job requirements and have sufficient interviewing skills in hopes that you receive an internship which will later materialize into a full-time job -> Voila – you are now a public accountant!
But what about those who did things a little differently? Who didn’t attend a school such as the University of Denver or Regis University? How do we pin our maps so that we can arrive at the same destination? Join me as I discuss the adversities I’ve had to face post-undergrad to secure a job in public accounting and the issues that underpin the public accounting recruiting system.
