Ly H.’s Answer
Hello Carmen, from what I can gather from my peers, a lot are going into entry-level accounting jobs, and getting ready to take the CPA exam. The ones who are going into graduate school are doing so because they want to finish the 150-credit requirement, one of the criteria, for the CPA license.
Carmen, also take note that after obtaining the CPA license, in order to keep the license, accountants are required to take CPE (Continuing Professional Education). Often, these CPE are conferences/talks/etc., and are most likely encouraged/paid by the company you worked at.
In my opinion, Carmen, as an accounting major, you only have to go to graduate school if you NEED to. Otherwise, gaining experience from working would be more beneficial.
Best of luck to you, Carmen!
