Hey fishes! I could really use some advice right now. I’ve been working in audit for about 8 months now and I’ve tried studying for the CPA as well. All in all, I’ve failed FAR 3 times and I’ve failed AUD once.
I’ve been considering leaving my job after I hit a year to focus on getting my masters degree in Cyber Accounting and passing the CPA exam. Any thoughts?
With my work schedule right now it seems like it’s impossible to balance studying and work. How did you guys do it?
Can someone please suggest me good keywords that needs to be there in resume for a person like me having 4+yeras of experience in Procure to pay and RTR profile on SAP.Plus talking about other factors I have done my full time MBA and looking for job in finance profile.
Also Any reference will be highly appreciated.

How does everyone deal with early pregnancy symptoms during busy season? I’m not expecting anytime soon, but I was thinking about how I’d handle it the future. My fall busy seasons are 95+ hour weeks with spring busy season around 80+ hours. Especially during fall, I’m just exhausted for several weeks and have no energy. I’m not sure how this would work with first trimester symptoms and no one knowing. I also know I’ll be promoted before then, so my workload will only increase.
