What is the job? Accountant/CPA Articling Student. I won't mention the name of the firm, but it is well established across Canada.
What is your degree? 4-year BBA with a concentration in Accounting. Basically it's an accounting degree.
What school you from? University of Winnipeg. It is literally the bottom of the bottom tier for business schools. Typically accounting students are usually the best students in the faculty of business, but not at this school. The problem however is the quality of the students, not the faculty. One thing that I found interesting however, is that the prestige behind your alma mater has little to no weight, as I got offers from several firms (mostly Big 4) in Toronto and Vancouver at the end of the recruiting period (I was willing to move for work).
Would you recommend your major? Absolutely not. University was a worthwhile experience for me personally, both from an academic and employment standpoint. It opened up a lot of opportunities because I put in the time and effort. The market for entry level accounting positions is oversaturated. Only go into accounting if you're a dedicated student, have the aptitude, and actually like accounting. Unless you're at or near the top of your class at any school, involved in community and school, AND have relevant work experience, your chances of getting a Jr. position are zero unless you know someone. Unfortunately, when it came time for recruitment, I didn't know anyone at any firm, so I fell in the former category.
