I just graduated with my MBA and I am a Cost Accountant at a manufacturing company. However, I received a Big 4 job offer and will be starting that job in the fall.
I plan to take two months off to breathe before I start in the fall, but I know that eventually I will take the CPA exam. Should I work a little bit and get used to my new job or take the exam as soon as I can? – Maggie
Congrats on the new degree and the new job! Well done.
You have two choices:
Option 1: Breath easy now and coast for the next 2 months and then run into that buzzsaw known as “trying to study for the CPA Exam during busy season.”
Killer article on that here, btw.
Sorry … easily distracted … HiYa – Engaging NINJA Focus!!!.
Option 2: Start studying now and knock out an exam section (or two) before you begin your Big 4 Accounting gig and breathe easier instead of suffocating from the workload and stress of the CPA Exam.
Deuces all the way, Maggie.
