A bit of background info. Graduated 2010 with degree in
econ from a good university. (2.97 gpa) Then went on to completed 150
units of acct/bus course at local community college.
About to sit for the CPA exam, but figure, best chance to work
for the big 4 or a good mid-tier firm is through MAcc recruiting.
I'm thinking of enrolling in my local state Macc program
so that I can hopefully recruit with the big 4. After
searching on these form it seems like this is the most
effective way into getting into a big 4 or good mid tier
My only question is, if the Macc program that I'm
planning on enrolling into is 1 year and most firm
recruit during the fall time, I wont have a graduate gpa
to be base off of. So how would I get an
interview/notice? Because when I was an undergrad, the
big 4 required a minimum gpa of 3.2 to apply for the
My undergrad gpa wasnt too hot, so this is why I figure
going to this Macc program could really help my current situation. (improve gpa, network, etc).
But, if the big 4 recruit during fall, and I do not have a graduate GPA, then how will I get the interview?
OR, I could always just power through the CPA exam, but
with very little recruiting power from the community
college, I find it difficult to find work, even after
passing all 4 section of the cpa exam.
