    Linkedin is your best friend or try your college’s career center and have them look over your resume. The only thing you can do is look around and mention that you are currently studying and passed one exam. Good luck

    In addition to the other suggestions you received, try joining your state’s CPA society and start networking through the online forums and webinars. Reach out to friends from school and ask former professors if they know who is hiring.

    Experience was the worst part of the journey for me. You?

    The Professional Societies are a waste. They’re only interested in setting up business deals with other established professionals. Membership ain’t free so keep that in mind

    You’re better off on LinkedIn. Follow a few professionals and companies. If they post something, respond. Use the time to strike up a conversation (do NOT ask for a job). Instead, if you get a bubble ask for their opinion on X.

    Also setup job alerts. When something interesting posts, tailor your cover letter to mention something you saw on LinkedIn.

    I got interviews doing this. They ultimately went with someone else, but I was brought in because of it. Just get in the room bc you never know. A lot of job hunting is luck and timing.
