Hi Fishes,

I got a contract offer to work with EY for one year tenure for auditing . Job description is not particularly mentioned in offer letter but job position is mentioned as finance associate. EY will also partially fund for my CPA exam. Do you think my job will deal with for core auditing or just back end work? Also will I have access to learning platforms while under contract employment?

Is it a time frame for taking a CPA exam? What means is that I graduated for a few years but didn’t take CPA exam. After starting with a job at PA, I always feel exhausted and endless work. Now, I don’t have a busy schedule anymore, then think of taking CPA exam will be an option. Before I submit application and paperwork, I have to make sure if my credits are still valid. That’s the reason why I’m asking if there is a time frame for taking a CPA exam.

Hi, I was recently fired from my job (wasn't a great fit for the role) and I've been job hunting for the past two weeks. I mostly have government audit experience. I'm interested in public accounting. I've applied for some experienced associate roles online but haven't heard anything back regarding these applications or got an auto-reject email.

I have my 150 and passed the CPA exam. I'm interested in audit roles, either remote or hybrid to DC or Boston. LMK if your firm is hiring!

Question for any CPAs here who play video games in their free time as a hobby: Is it possible or impossible to be able to study/pass all 4 parts of the CPA exam and be able to have some time for video game leisure? If it is possible, then how did you do it?

Very curious as I am an avid gamer, but am realizing that it may be time to say goodbye to that for several months-to a year if I want to pass all exams in one try. I will appreciate any helpful feedback!

Compared to other countries equivalents, the CPA exam in the US is a joke.
In Germany you need at least 3 years of work experience in Audit/public accounting, before being qualified to sit the exams and act as a "cpa". In the big 4, passing the exams, will guarantee an instant promotion to Manager. The exam is considered to be the hardest professional/post grad exam in the country

How do you manage to study for the CPA exam while having a family and working full time? I’m about to throw in the towel and give up getting my CPA. I’m exhausted everyday to the point I’m falling asleep when I sit down. I’m frustrated because I feel like I have no time of my own and my husband isn’t being supportive in helping me study… like constant interruptions and continuous talking. Also do not get any help with any household activities and I’m to my limit with everything.

How long did it take your CPA exam application to be approved? It has been over a month for me, but on my application status it is marked they received all my information. I checked the board meeting notes for the upcoming meeting and my name isn’t listed in the approve section. I am thinking my application is sitting in the denied file or processing is delayed. Just wondering what everyone else has experienced.

Anyone looking for a good supplement to Becker or any course really. I’d highly recommend i75 Skinny Bundle. Darius Clark basically fills in the gaps that Becker does not. Went from a 55 on CPA exam to 80 after a month of studying with Darius. So just throwing it out there for you guys who are studying and looking for a good supplement.

If you sit for a CPA exam on the date a different one expires is that considered within the 18 month window? Or does the date need to be the day you get your exam results back? This is for Florida

Started public accounting with 130 credits and no intentions of staying in the field or taking the cpa exam because I knew it wasn’t the field for me and just needed to get my foot in the door. They asked how the exam was going so many times while I made senior but the said exam wasn’t even being studied for because I knew my plan. 🫣 just had to let that out.

You guys. The cheating investigation happened 2 years ago. The majority of incidents happened several years prior to that. The majority related to internal training programs, some related to the AICPA ethics exam, NONE of it related to the actual CPA exam. EY has legal liability insurance that covers the settlement and fines were imposed on employees involved. So no this isn't something thats happening currently. No its not cheating on the CPA exam. No it's not affecting your raise. Calm down.
