What can I do with my degrees in architecture and accounting?

Hi Randy

You can do a variety of things with your two degrees.  They key question you need to answer is “what do you want to do?”

Do you want to focus on architecture and use your accounting skills in a secondary manner, supporting your career in architecture; or do you want to focus on accounting and do so in architecture-related fields?

Or, do you want to do something altogether different?

Whatever you do, you have to make YOU make sense to potential employers via your resume, professional correspondence an professional networking.

No employer want to hire you to allow you to figure out what you want to do with your degrees.  Employers expect you to be able to tell them why you want to work for them, in their industry, and in the job for which you are applying.

You have some very important decisions to make.  Do you pursue certification in Architecture (NCARB), Accounting (CPA, etc.) or both?  Your question is easy to pose, but complicated to answer fully.

I recommend you review two of my earlier blogs for some additional information:

Getting your Foot in the Door at Ernst & Young

I also recommend you review the Professional Association links on my blog for Accounting and Architecture. The resources you will find on these pages will help you better understand your o

Good Luck
