My chances of working in CA with a degree from East Coast? [#permalink] New post 09 Jan 2013, 17:28
Currently I'm debating between moving to NC for my masters of accounting or trying my chances in CA. I really like the network UNC provides and I like the area but I was wondering what are my chances of working in CA straight out of UNC? Some statistics/charts (if available) would be very helpful.

Do a linkedin advanced search and type in "Kenan-Flagler" under school, select "accounting" as the industry and then do a search. You'll see a list of cities on the left side. Charlotte, Raleigh, Washington DC, Atlanta, and NYC were by far the most common, but when I did it using my network, there were still people in Cali and when I did my interview, the interviewer said that people from last year were interested in San Fran, Denver, etc. and got placed. My guess is that Big 4 is a bit tough because USC is the main feeder for Cali, but UNC is a top notch school so I bet that if you did well and networked, you'd have a decent shot. Good luck with your decision. I hear back from UNC on Friday and it's my top choice. I too want to work on the west and I'm confident that with the cache the school has, I can eventually get there if I network hard and interview well.

Honestly, you stand a better chance of working in CA by attending the USC MAcc. You can certainly leverage UNC's MAcc to get there, but it will be more difficult. Based on the 2012 employment report for the UNC MAcc, I don't see many people reporting employment on the west coast. Of course, the stats may be more reflective of preference and not possibilities. A 660 GMAT will give you a fighting chance at USC, so I would advise that you apply there. Either way, good luck to you.
