Same position AJ. I just got AUD results in LA/Orange County area and looking to get out of private industry and towards public. Why do I feel like I always hear of people straight out of college going immediately into the big accounting firms while studying, as opposed to passing CPA exam first then starting their public career? Every entry-level cpa job I find on indeed requires public accounting experience. EXTREMELY ANNOYING.
Yes I am pretty frustrated too looking at the majority of entry lvl positions wanting 1-2yrs experience. Literally makes no sense. Not looking forward to working in the corporate world to be quite honest.
