Don't stop With the Accounting Major
As a college student, you have so many decisions to make. What school will I attend? Check. What should I major in? Check. Which direction should I take my career? Become a CPA of course! Adding the CPA credential to your name opens so many doors and allows you to go above and beyond in the accounting profession. If that's not enough, follow the money. According to the AICPA, CPAs earn 10-15% more than non-CPAs working in accounting-related jobs. Other studies have shown the gap as high as 41% between the certified and un-certified. Duh!
