Benefits of Being a CPA

We all know that the job market is competitive and companies have more stringent qualifications for positions.
More than ever, companies are requiring a CPA certificate for their accounting openings! This is even more applicable for higher level, and higher paying jobs!

Becoming a Certified Public Accountant is not easy. However, the rewards pay off in the long run with higher salaries earned over the course of your career. You have to have a 150 semester hours (5 years of college) to sit for the exam in Missouri. And 33 of those hours must be in accounting and 27 must be general business. It also requires a significant time commitment to study for the CPA exam and the exam fees are nearly $1,000 and are non-refundable. So, it definitely pays to pass the exam the first time! The best way to do that is with Becker Review. Burchard & Associates, Inc. is a preferred provider for the Becker Review program and we can offer a $500 discount to our candidates.
