MS accounting recruiting dilemma [#permalink]
27 Jul 2011, 15:10
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.
Current plan: 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 cpa firm.
Dilemma: 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 internship.
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.
