Get certified. Apply early and often. Join the survey; get the results.

I’m looking over the early responses to our new CPA Careers survey and one stands out for its practicality and wisdom. This from a veteran senior finance manager at a Fortune 1000 company is, I think, 18 pieces of the best advice I’ve ever heard.
1. For the accountant who is not a CPA yet: If you’re not a CPA already, make it a goal.
2. If you need hours, apply to every accounting firm that you could drive to or are willing to move close to.
