Hi all. I discovered this wonderful forum just today and reading through the forums, I feel like this is a great community to get myself involved in. My question is that I am struggling mightily to jump-start my accounting career. I am a 26-year-old graduate student who is pursuing a master's in accountancy in Michigan, US. My background is that I graduated undergraduate with a bachelor's degree in Business (General) and my past accounting job experience only entails internships in that field. What really put me behind was taking a gap year after my undergraduate program where I struggled with medical and severe mental health issues that led me to start my graduate program later than I would have liked. I was wondering if you guys had any tips or insights on where I should start as I have been unsuccessfully applying to mostly entry-level jobs. Is it much wiser to look exclusively for accounting internships instead? Furthermore, are there any certifications/courses you would recommend to better my job prospects? Thank you so much in advance.
