Okay, so I passed FAR in February which I’m still shocked that I made it through that exam. After that, I took one scheduled month off for my company’s fiscal year end. I hated to take a month off but it was a requirement to get caught up at work for fiscal year end closing.
So here I am, start of April and getting my momentum back in full swing for AUD in May… and then it happens. I get pulled into my boss’s office with an incredible career opportunity that is literally impossible to pass up. This is something that will not come around again in my lifetime probably. Unfortunately, the opportunity requires a relocation to Japan for 2-6 months starting May 7th (so my May 22nd AUD exam is shot).
I called up the board of examiners and I can actually sit for my exam in Tokyo at a Prometrics location. The downside is that I think passing the CPA exam is difficult enough already. Throwing in a relocation to Japan in the middle of it and taking on an enormous career challenge that will most certainly take up more time than my current role in the states… Do I stand a chance??? Probably not, but I’m going to take a crack at it. I’ll need A71 to support me as I sacrafice my sanity, that’s for sure.
At least my boss does support the CPA and I have been told that I’m not expected to work more than 10 hour days. That’s easier said than done when learning a new role, but we will see how this all goes I guess.
Jeff… any discounts on NINJA if I’m going to the land of the NINJA’s? 🙂
