What we found is that company culture has begun to play a vital role in a new accountant's decision to pursue or accept an offer from a firm. Understandably, a firm's company culture is especially important because it reflects and defines both the working environment and the personality of a firm.

I graduated college from San Francisco State in 2010 with a degree in Liberal Studies because I thought I had to get a degree and it didn't matter what it was. Fast forward seven years later and I finally realize what I want to for my career. So, I decided to go back to school for accounting. I always loved the thought of going into the accounting field and now I’m following that dream.
I am currently working two jobs while attending school full-time to obtain my accounting degree to start my new career. While it’s a great deal of work, I’m pushing forward because I want to get my CPA license to better my future and to do something I really enjoy doing.
