Hello Stephanie! Here comes a Research Data Analyst from Canada. After working at a nice market research company for 1 year, I figured out that I still prefer working at public accounting firm – where I spent most of my summer times – instead of market research, although my major is like marketing and data modeling.

I found your website very helpful and I do regret that I haven’t found it earlier. I have a particular interest in Transfer Pricing and Global Taxation, however, public acct firms usually hire people with accounting degree in Canada, especially for Quebec. I am preparing for my CFA LevelII and Canadian CPA, and maybe USCPA as well. The thing is, I am not really sure about how could I successfully realize a career transition. Hope that I can see more discussion on this topic from your website.

    Hello, did you end up making the transition? I apologize for the delay in commenting, so please let me know where things stand today 🙂 I’m happy to recommend things if you’re still looking to make the change!
