    Both times I've come home the first thing I did was play with my dog. Definitely the thing I miss most from home.

    Adjusting wasn't that hard, it's just really different. I'm really glad I'm in an apartment and have my own room and I'm not living in a dorm. Dealing with money is a ***** and there really isn't much to motivate you other than yourself.

    That is correct comahan
    I ******* LOVE YOU DG

NO JOB IN MY SEARCH SUGGESTS A CERTIFICATION IS REQUIRED. again, how is this difficult to understand? you don't even have ONE leg in this argument, as you've provided absolutely no evidence that such a thing is required and are simply arguing because you think they require it. i'm done arguing this until you actually provide some vague degree of proof, either in the form of jobs that actually list as a true requirement, being certified, or a law that suggests it's a requirement. without that, you are clearly, at this point, wrong.

      Certainly there is no requirement to be certified to be hired as an accountant, but to work for one of the big 4 (Deloitte, KPMG, Price Waterhouse, or Ernst and Young) or any company that does public accounting and auditing, you NEED to have your CPA or your work doesn't really count for anything.

      After the crackdown of Sarbanes Oxeley, a fall out predominantly after the scandals at companies like Enron and Tyco at the beginning of the decade, the regulations became far more strict and watched over. You wont be able to sign off on any work and thus you become no good to them, and wont be hired. My schools business school had a cool program if you were a selected accounting major in which you went to school for 5 years, half of a semester would be spent at one of the Big 4 as an intern, and the other half as a TA for intro accounting classes. At the end you graduated with a Masters of Accountancy and they basically have so many tutoring classes and required classes that every one has passed their CPA exams by the time they're done (everyone moves onto a job at one of the big 4 after). Those that dont get into this special program have ZERO chance of getting hired at one of the big 4 auditing firms and are mainly hired on as staff accountants at an industry job where they basically work in AP, AR, or other specifics to accounting departments. Obviously, these jobs are far less prestigious and pay far less than those that are CPA's and one could make the argument that they aren't really accountants but more book keepers as someone put it. But yeah, good luck auditing when the regulations of sarbanes requires you to be a Certified public accountant to be able to sign off on public financial statements.
