CGA - Is it a good idea?
This is my situation, I'm in my mid 30's with not much work experience, I just found a job as admin assistant for not even 30K a year. I'm tired of getting paid so low and need to make a change to improve.
While I was a student at university (I have a bachelor in business) I wasn't a good student, I was very young and didn't really care about it. Now I see the consequences..After doing some research I think on enrolling to the CGA program. The reason is that typical admin jobs have a customer service side that I hate, that's why I think accounting will spare me that part. Is this really a good idea? My concerns are about:
1) How hard is the program itself? Are grades very important to get a job?
2) How hard is to get a job to fulfill the 2 year work experience requirement?
3) If I take courses in the university of toronto, why would I need to pay the $730 tuition fee per year?
