Hello everyone,\n\nI've been reading up on all career advice topics and finally got the nerve\nto post my own question.\n\nI've got a BSc in Engineering degree (98) and 5 years sales experience\n(selling Industrial Electronics and Financial Software). I do want to move\non Accounting, as I got some exposure to it when selling Financial packages.\nCMA designation right now looks very good toi me, as I see the eight months\naccelerated program, put out by CMA Ontario, as a fastest route to get into\naccounting. I've got all my prerequisites now - can start the program in\nJanuary. I've got one problem now. Although I have entry-level Financial and\nCost Acct courses, I cannot find anything entry-level, even for an hour\n(I haven't tried volonteering yet). Are there any suggestions out there for\nthe engineering boy who took the crooked path? What the heck do I put on my\nresume? Is there a chance for me to find employment once I pass the CMA\nexams? Should I perhaps take a slower route, getting a University\nCertificate in Accounting, available through Athabasca and then going at my\nCMA?\n\nAny suggestions would be very much appreciated!
