Ok. I’m now getting to my wit’s end. I spent nearly three years and thousands of dollars taking the exams and finally finished this past March. It took a total of 11 tries to get it done, but I persevered! Originally I contacted my controller regarding the work experience to see if we could come up with a plan to garner me the remaining 900 hours I needed based on my calculations. I didn’t hear anything from her for 2 1/2 weeks, at which point she responded and thought I had the necessary 1800 hours. I was elated!
I spent two weeks getting the application ready and passed the ethics exam (95%, first try) and sent the documents to her in May. After not getting a response for two weeks, I followed up. A week later we saw each other in person and I followed up again and was told it was at the top of her list. It is now six weeks and counting and I still have not received the signed work experience form and wonder if I ever will. It seems at this point it may be better to move on to a new company and start from scratch instead of waiting, but if she eventually does sign it would save me a ton of time.
I hate being at the mercy of another person and find it curious that she was the one who thought I had enough hours, but now seems reluctant to sign. It makes me feel like my career development isn’t important. If there is a concern that I would leave right after licensure, that should be addressed like professionals. Furthermore, not responding at all also could lead to me leaving so it’s not a very good strategy. At this point, what are my options?
For context I should add that we are being bought by another company so there is a huge financial workload going on right now, but the signing process would only take about five minutes so I’m shocked a small smidgen of time couldn’t be carved out.
