You will need a CPA to sign off. There’s nothing from stopping them but unfortunately you don’t work in audit... so it’s really like what the heck? Some states let you still obtain a non-signing CPA designation which essentially means “I’m book smart but didn’t actually work in public accounting”

Im someone with a "business" background (supply chain, procurement) that went to work for as a consultant for tech consulting firm after finishing my MBA, but now having trouble finding a project. Got my PSM 1 cert, but not sure what else to do. Not a technical person, never coded. What would you recommend someone in my position to focus on? I'd like to remain on the project management/BA side of the business. TIA!

I have a feeling my Engagement Partner wants me to quit the engagement. It's my 3rd week, but he's been nothing but rude, demeaning and unhelpful. Refuses to answer any of my questions and then berates and belittles me for not knowing the answers. He already threatened to "replace" me if I don't show adequate progress. Roll off voluntarily or wait until he fires me?
