private vs public accounting
Since I decided to become an accounting major, I have always contemplated if I should become a certified public accountant. I am now a senior and I have decided that I want to obtain my CPA license.
Accountants get their CPA license to work in public accounting. After CPAs get their experience, they do not have to stay working in public accounting firms. Whether they stay in public accounting or work in private business, they are trusted to provide financial advice for businesses.
I was hesitant to make the decision to become a CPA because I was not entirely sure if I wanted to work in public accounting.
