Being a CPA – Is It Worth It? | AccountingWEB | Accounting |
Just completed our 7th tax season since I went back into practice full-time.  Perhaps, like you, I am wondering if this was the correct career decision after all.Yes, there are many advantages to being a CPA, primarily the CPA brand.  As I have explained to students and civilians over the years, people treat you differently when they find out you are a CPA. Our profession is still held in such esteem that it sets you aside from the general populace and gives one a leg up in all sorts of business, and even personal, situations.

It is no question that achieving the CPA title is rewarding in numerous aspects of your life and career. However, some people question if the strenuous work is worth it. All the work that goes into being a CPA, keeping people happy and working everyday without a guarunteed paycheck, have some people wondering if there is better work opportunities. Some argue that pursuing a career in government will have you better off. Some of that work includes less working hours, numerous sick and vacation days, and even retiring early. Overall, it is important to consider all your options before you dedicate yourself to the accountant and CPA life.

A Certified Public Accountant are accountants that advise "individuals, businesses, financial institutions, nonprofit organizations and government agencies." CPAs offer a variety of advice and they point people in the right direction when it comes to financial matters. What separates them from other accountants is their license. CPAs undergo an extremely difficult test in order to achieve this title. In addition, once they become certified they continue to stay up to date with mandatory requirements.
