    accounting/finance salaries

    Seremify mate from alot of your previous messages you seem like you have alot of talent. I am dumbfounded tho by your decision to go into accounting, but even more so to take on a cadetship with a big 4 firm. Maybe you are Asian and your parents recommend that you take a role with good job...

    accounting/finance salaries

    seremify: so do you mean when you sister got sent overseas for her firm, she STILL pays Australian taxes or she pays the overseas working tax? And also Capitalist I still fail to see your point. Regardless of the progressive tax rate, if you are in the same income bracket (and I'm sure...

    Professional Recognition (Finance)

    I don't know all there is about professional recognition in the finance industry, but I'm pretty sure CFA is the equivalent to finance majors as CPA/CA is to Accounting. Membership/Associate of SIA (or the new merged institute) is generally seen by employers as scrapy.. its more of a basics...

    UTS COOP Accounting Program

    No offence Seremify but please tell me you accepted a cadetship at a big 4 accounting firm or one of the more prestigious investment houses (don';t think they do 'cadetships' per se) instead of B.ACC?
  15. M

    UTS vs. UNSW

    b.acc is much better then any cadetship. Same goes for any other co-op. A cadetship is just a full time bottom level role (yes the underlings do the most work.. didn't u know?) with very little pay. Most cadets know and complain they don't get paid enough. You don't need to work 3 years...
