Career opportunities for audit/tax experience with CFA

[original post removed]

If you have 3 years of experience, you should have a pretty good idea of whether or not you like tax work.

First–do you really think you can take the test and pass it? Not that you’re not smart, but the test is on June 1-7, and you realistically probably won’t have time to study until April 16.

Second–if you do take the test and pass–what do you want to do? CFA is useless for a tax advisor, unless you want to do valuations or portfolio management. And if you want to do either of those, it might be easier to do ASA/CFP than to do the whole CFA thing. (Trust me–I’m in the same boat.)
