What is the best way to get a CPA certificate?

Hello everyone, looking for some advice on getting a CPA certificate. I've got an accounting background outside the US, with a mix of academic and work experience. Now, I'm at a US company and planning for the CPA exam. Wondering if I should go for specific courses or opt for college. Your thoughts and tips are much appreciated! P.S. - I'm not in the US, so only remote/online formats work for me.

What career path should I choose ? It's getting really hard to even know what I want.

Hi, I'm someone that is currently 26 years old and in need of assistance about what type of career that i should pursue, I'm good with my adaptability (or you could say a quick learner) and somewhat interested in sci-fi movies (or technology), the thing is it's kind of hard for me to do something repetitively as it gets boring pretty fast, I do have a bachelor degree in electrical engineering but after seeing what my fellow graduate's job is now I lost my interest in the field, what should I do ? ps : I don't mind taking another degree

How to get into Tsinghua university as an international student?

I'm 11th grade student in Mongolia, and I hope to get into Tsinghua as an international student. I have HSK4 score and planning on getting HSK5 score before graduating. And my English is quite not bad and hoping to get IELTS score as soon as possible. I have interest in physic and math and have achieved some medals in these subjects. And I have interest in chess, but not so good at it. My grades are not bad, straight A mostly, few Bs. So, my question is how to get into THU, am I qualified enough, and please tell me the steps of applications, including online application process, interview and examination process, and hope you can tell me about scholarships. Thank you!

What career path should I follow based on the following information?

I'm an 18-year-old freshly out of high school. I'm not really sure about what I should pursue in college. My interests incline towards chemistry, biology, and psychology and I feel like I want to do something in the field of biology. But the thing is, in this field whatever I'm inclining toward seems like it wouldn't really help me with any placements and job opportunities, at least till I complete my master's in the course. Also, the earning also seems pretty low, specifically in India. I did think about going in the direction of med, but the competition seems way too high, and it feels very challenging so I'm not really sure about it. I was thinking about choosing between pharmacy and biotechnology, but in both cases, the placements and the opportunities seem to be lacking in India. What should I do? Note: this question was asked anonymously by a student

My question is how do I find tech companies who are hiring non-residents?

My major is computer science and I’m an international student. After graduation we can apply to work for a year as a part of practical training. But I’m worried about my career after that because my one work permit will expire and can’t be renewed since I’m a non-resident of US. I have to find a company who can sponsor H1 visa so that I could continue my work. There are millions of international students, permanent residents/citizens of US, people with greater work experiences applying at the same time as me. My question is how do I find tech companies who are hiring non-residents? How do I stand out among those huge mass people? #technology #computer-science #international-student #JULY20
