I'm trying to figure out what I should get my degree in finance or accounting. I would my CPA if I did accounting... Would it be smart for me to get my CPA with a finance degree as well or unnecessary? Which degree has more job offers? SO if you have either degree could you tell me how you like your job and a little about it? What kind of hours or days would I work? About how much would I make starting off and how much could I possibly earn down the road... Do you ever get bonuses? Could I work for myself? ... Just trying to figure out which path is best for me since I have three kids to consider as well ... Thank you ladies for your help!!! :)

Well, all I know is that people in accounting have the highest divorce rate...... I'm in banking, so I'd do finance if I were you. ;)

Can you tell me a little about what you do? Hours or pay or anything like that?

I have a degree in accounting.

When I choose to work, there are plenty of Job opportunities, the pay is high, and the hours great (9-5). I have my CPA license.

I've worked in corporate accounting.

Oh, and I've been happily married for 7+ years, lol!

My husband is a cop, so I guess we beat the divorce rate odds, lol

Do you have your bachelors or masters degree ?

This is a really good question, and I look forward to more answers.  I just started college and haven't decided a major yet, but am seriously considering these things.
