Tomorrow evening: APS Masters in Accounting Open House: Is Accounting a Good Profession for Frum women?

Q and A with D.B., APS (division of Agudath Yisroel of America) alumnus from 2015           

Q: Is accounting a good career choice for frum women?

 

There are varying options within the field of accounting, including part-time positions with flexible hours.  Accountants are needed in companies everywhere so it is easy to find a job near home.

Accounting firms sometimes do allow their employees to work from home part time. It is not a very strenuous job so one can be relaxed when she comes home from work.   

Q: For whom would you recommend the field of accounting? 

I strongly recommend accounting for someone who is looking to help support her family as the salary is very good and there is a lot of growth opportunity. As long as you are motivated and are not afraid of working with numbers, accounting can work for you. There are many opportunities within the accounting field to choose from so even if one branch of accounting does not sound appealing to you, there are other options to choose from.  

Q: Please tell us about the APS MS Accounting Course. 

APS offers a Master’s in Accounting course catered to the needs of frum women in Lakewood. The program is accredited through Fairleigh Dickinson University and the students are very well prepared to sit for the CPA exams.  The schedule coordinates with Yomim Tovim and the teachers are very supportive and caring. The dedicated accounting recruiters assist with job placement and interview preparations.  

Q: Tell us about the current job market. 

There is a high demand for qualified accountants; having received my Masters through FDU opened the door for better job opportunities. There are many firms of all sizes looking to hire entry level accountants for positions with growth opportunity. APS has a fantastic program that helps all their students try to find jobs/internships following the course and beyond. They have contacts in all types of firms.

The masters in accounting I received through APS gave me a wide range of job options upon completion, including those which I would have otherwise not received with just a BA. 

APS directed me to multiple job opportunities which brought me to my current position in Ernst and Young, a top firm. They gave me multiple contacts to consult with before my interviews and before entering the workforce. 

The open house will take place Tuesday June 25, 2019 at 7:00. The open house will take place in PCS 1771 Madison Ave. Suite 10. For more information contact: Tova at (732) 367-1500 or [email protected]
