Landing Jobs for CPA Board Passers

Passing the CPA Board Examination alone is already an edge over other candidates in an accounting job.  However, if a candidate does not have a previous work experience (often called fresh graduate), even a CPA board passer cannot be expected to have a high position or high salary.  You need an experience for you to make a “demand”.  Probably, even before you graduated, you already have an idea on what job to land after passing the board exam.  To help you decide we’ll give you a discussion that may be helpful to you.
