I am a 33 year old woman who is doing an MBA with a concentration in accounting (through the concentration and electives) so I can get the required number of college credit hours in accounting to qualify to take the Uniform CPA exam in Kentucky. Kentucky requires 27 credit hours in accounting and I already have 6 credit hours from my associates degree in accounting. I decided to study transportation and logistics management with a concentration in reverse logistics management for my BA but I have decided to study accounting at the graduate level as a career change.

I recently moved to the Lexington, Kentucky after my husband retired from the Air Force last year and I was wondering what the best career move would be for a new CPA with a background in logistics/supply chain management. I got on the accounting path after I realized that getting a good job in logistics as a female would be really hard in this area. I also had time left to burn on my husband's GI Bill so I figured that I would go for the MBA. My husband has a friend who is a CPA who told me that I could work under him to get the required 2000 hours of experience for my CPA.

I am currently looking into careers with the IRS and I am also looking at trying to become a Certified Fraud Examiner. I worked in fraud services for a major bank years ago and I always wanted to move up back then but it was hard because I was really young and did not have a college degree.

I noticed that there are a number of certifications available to accountants. Which certification (s) are best for an accountant with a background in forward/reverse logistics, supply chain management, purchasing, etc?

Need info:
Is your background in logistics entirely from school or did you work in logistics, if so how long?
Please list a few of the certifications you are considering.

Hi everyone:


I graduated from college last May with a major in accounting. I have more than 4 years of experience in accounting (AR, AP, GL, etc) but I do not know for what position I should apply. If someone can give me an idea of the difference between Staff Accountant, Staff Accountant II and Senior Accountant. What position should I apply?
