Well I'm 27 years old. My bachelors was in Criminal Justice but i'm working in an unrelated field (and poorly paid at that).

Was thinking of going back to school and getting a masters in something that fits my personality, is a clean job with good pay and in demand....accounting fits all of those requirements.

And going for a CPA eventually

Was thinking is it a big deal to employers if I had no prior experience and my bachelors was in something unrelated (although I did financial crime classes in undergrad)?

I'm willing to work my way up and get experience but hoping for more than 10/hour once I have a MSA know what i'm sayin

I was also looking at MBA programs but not sure, i'm not really interested in administration and dont really want to start my own business





thanks for any feedback

CPA is a good job, not as good as a WFA though. Phone Post
