Adding onto this, in some states (like NY) the Board requires them to respond to your application, and I think they hey can be penalized if they don't.

Actual question: why would you pursue a public accounting license if you left public accounting?

Again - I think it depends on your market OP. I’m in Tampa and the industry wants cpa. Especially for the higher up jobs. If you’re already doing it I would finish. I would rather have something and not need it then need something and not have it

Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations.
