"I live off food stamps and unemployment"
Really? Is it easy to get them? How do you get them?
Would you rather have:
A.) 50% of $500,000
B.) 100% of $50,000
That is why you should study hard for the CPA Exam."
Do you mean per year? I'm more than happy with $50K/year and doing nothing. I would have to work years to make that amount after taxes.
"Is there going to be a part 3 of this trilogy? :)"
No, sorry Jeff if my threads are too out in left field or something. I was curious to hear what other CPAs/Candidates like myself thought on these issues. If you feel they don't belong here, I understand if you want to delete them. Thanks.
Also, I don't mean for the threads to show up on the main forum page (I'm sure there are more important and relevant threads), but the subtopic threads go to the main page (which I can understand why they do). I can stop posting if you'd like as well.
Thank you very much for that post. I kind of thought that about food stamps (that they come up on a background check), but I wasn't sure. And I can't stay home all day doing nothing forever. I guess I just need to keep reminding myself of that (and that I'd rather be doing something productive, than the opposite). And it's not about the money.
@mla & Bark
So at Accountemps & other businesses, they DO reject based on food stamps alone or don't? I'm getting mixed messages.
"are you currently studying for the exam or are you trying to get a few opinions on whether or not this process is right for you? If you are indeed studying for it, what is your reason for studying so hard?"
Yes, I'm studying. I question whether I'm doing the right thing daily. Or whether I will fail miserably in the end. Am I wasting my time? Should I just find a job and forget about the CPA? It's so frustrating.
