I have been lurking on this forum for a long time now and did not post much. Just to give you a background of myself. I graduated from Ryerson University in Canada with Accounting Major and Finance minor, in June 2015. I still have to take one more class for CPA purposes which i will in September. Also, I have taken CFA level 1 in June 2015. My goal is to pursue both CPA and CFA but work in the finance field…i.e banking.
Before graduating, I got a job as an accouting for a NFP in Toronto, and have 1 year of experience to date. I am seriously looking for new opportunities but there are not many in Canada compared to U.S. I have been thinking of moving out to U.S for my career but don’t know if it will be any beneficial for me. What are some of the things I should do to increase my chance of landing a better job…in Toronto or U.S? I am registered on LinkedIN, but are there any other sites for networking?
What are some of the options I have?
Will I be wasting time if I apply to U.S job posting with Canadian address?
Thanks for reading
