Pass That Exam! – Becoming a CPA Is An Important Career Move

There is always all kinds of chatter out their in the CPA world when it comes to salaries. What is the going rate for new hires this year? What’s the salary range for long-time managers? What’s the average salary increase look like this year?

It’s not easy to obtain this kind of information. You can check-out the published surveys but I find the most visible ones do not always reflect what the typical CPA firm is doing. Firm leaders are very hesitant to share this information and MAP surveys do not disclose staff salaries. This is due to anti-trust laws.

However, this infographic from Masters In Accounting shares the advantages of advanced degrees and certifications.
