  1. Excellent description of the various career options available for accountants. Out of these I had never heard about Forensic accountant, it seems to be very lucrative.

  2. A key factor about selecting one of the career options is that switching among the choices is not easy. Accounting grads and new CPAs should chose wisely at the start of their careers. Experience in each area is crucial to success. Firms specializing in one of these sectors will provide training but they prefer novice accountants who will likely stick with the specialty, not CPAs who appear unsure about their career paths.
