I am back now and ready to catch up. First things first- I quit my full time job in accounting. I actually did it! I had been in my role as an investment accountant working for a large insurance company for two years. There is a recap of what my first year in corporate was like posted in another blog. While it was a fantastic job, I had to let it go. In today's video I will be sharing how I knew it was time to quit my job and what I did to prepare for my departure.
The career options in accounting are rather broad. Although when most people hear that I am a CPA, they instantly ask if I can do their taxes or help their kid with math (not all accountants love math btw). There is much more that a career in accounting has to offer. As many of you already know, I got my start in accounting working at a CPA firm as a tax associate. I have spoken candidly about what my time there was like, but if you are curious you can check out my previous blog on this topic. I started in my current role in June 2019, and I want to share with you what my career in corporate accounting has been like so far.
