    So here is the story.
    I am graduating soon with an accounting degree and want to get my CA in Canada. I applied to some jobs from craiglist just to test the water and got some bookkeeping interviews as well as a interview at a small CA firm as an accounting technician. So I got an offer for $30000 a year at a small consulting firm for junior bookkeeper however I rejected that offer because I was hoping to get the job at the CA firm. However the CA firm rejected me so now I am back to square one. I am now regretting my decision to reject the bookkeeping job. I do not want to be a book-keeper and I feel like I would be pigeonholed. As well there are no CA's working there so they probably wont support me going to write the tests. Did I make the right choice to reject the job offer or should I just take any job I get? Any advice would be appreciated I am really looking for some guidance here. Thanks.

    Answering your question of whether you made the right choice wouldn't do you any good imo. You made your choice based on your interest in working for the CA firm so that's that. Don't look back on that decision with any regret and move on from it. I could probably speak for the community in saying that you should pursue what interests you.

    Now if you are dead set on working for a CA firm and are rejected consistently, then I'd consider an alternative (such as the bookkeeping) and look to do your best work possible to advance to a more fulfilling position. But in your case, you've had only two interviews and still have yet to finish school. So my advice is to keep your chin up and keep applying to firms based on your interest. :slayer:

    All I have to say is that beggars can't be choosers "in this economy."
