Completing undergraduate accounting education...

The semester is over.... finally.

I've completed my final required accounting courses:

Intermediate Accounting II - we made it to the statement of cash flows and
accounting for leases, we did not cover pensions.

Current Topics in Accounting - gave my presentations on the Statement of
Cash Flows, wrote a paper on what it takes to be the best in business, wrote
papers and watched movies on accounting ethics, and gave a group
presentation the challenge of careers and family life

Advanced Accounting - covered everything from the Equity Method, accounting
when there is a noncontrolling interest, accounting for partnerships,
terminations, and liquidations. The professor wants us to read the chapter
on accounting for nonprofit organizations during the summer.

I'm spending some of the summer going over the material again - old tests,
quizzes, as well as going back and reviewing some of the more basic
accounting -- the accounting cycle, etc, from my first (and best) textbook.
I do not have to take Auditing in the Fall (you can substitute Advanced
Accounting for Auditing) but I may still "audit" the class. :) I may also
take the "Not for Profit" accounting class.

Now that I just got laid off (most likely) from my data entry job, I can
start looking for an accounting position. It's tough though, because in the
fall i'll have classes all day long, and I doubt there are many "2nd shift"
accounting/career type positions. I can't wait until I officially graduate,
can find work, and attend graduate school and hopefully acquire a Masters in
Accounting.

take care guys

Good luck. Have you considered signing up with an employee leasing company
for a temp position? In my area there is opportunity for career
professionals on a short term basis. I think it comes up most when parents
want to take a summer off to be with their kids or women go on maternity
leave. You could potentially find a 2-3 month full-time assignment and then
possibly a school-year part-time assignment.
