CPA vs Entertainment Industry Career Path?
Hey everyone! I'm currently a senior and I'll be graduating from college with a degree in economics in May. I'm at a stage where I begin to explore my options and careers in the future, so hopefully some of you can give me some advice!
So here's my plan...I've decided to give it a shot at becoming a singer after graduation (!!). Since I know this career path is super risky and not stable, I'd try to become a CPA while pursing my singer dream. So I'll work and I'll take enough accounting classes after graduation in order to qualify me for those exams WHILE prepping my way to become a singer.
My idea is that, if my hollywood dream fails (which is very likely), I hope that I could still get a job at a mid-tier accounting firm (McGladrey or GT) as a CPA, and just work in the industry for the rest of my life.
So. what do you think? Is it realistic at least? Any advice would be helpful! Thanks!
