I reside in Columbus, Ohio. I have three years of public accounting experience in India from 2012 - 2015 and was unable to work due to visa restrictions. As a refresher to my career I invested in pursuing CPA. I passed FAR and Audit sections. Should I apply for associate or experienced associate roles in USA public accounting firms? I feel I can handle more work load than a fresher. Any thoughts and referrals are much appreciated

I would apply for new associate positions to get in the door, and then expect to move up quickly if you demonstrate that you can handle it. Unfortunately, they will look for some more recent experience when applying for anything more, especially if the referrals are working out on the experienced positions.

Thanks for your insight

Agree with Pwc1. You have more experience than a US college grad so hopefully of you join as a new associate the firm will quickly realize your value and maybe promote early. Good luck to you.

So you mean no more visa restrictions? You can start applying even without sponsorship. You have experience so shoot your shot.

You have the ability to work without sponsorship now? If so, I'd go ahead and apply. You can try for experienced associate

To answer your first question I am happy to say I have employment authorization documents and will never need sponsorship
