My boyfriend is a new graduate (last December), and holds a BA in Business Management Economics with an emphasis in Accounting. He wants to gain experience in the field and eventually be a CPA (he is actually studying right now to take the exams in a few months). Unfortunately, he finds himself working at a dead end customer service temp job while looking for real work in the field. It has been really hard for him to get his foot in the door; he has been sending out his resume to all kinds of local CPA firms in hopes of just getting an interview, but he can't even get an interview. I know that if he could get an interview, he would be set because he is very competent and I feel that they would see that. Any suggestions or advice in how he can get an entry level staff accountant position??? It seems that the accounting world is only looking to hire more experienced professionals, but they must get started somewhere right? How can he get started? I feel that as he gets further and further from his graduation date, employers will be less willing to consider him at all.
