Would stating current classes in community college rather undermine my BA?
Should I leave out the current certificate process in "community college" not to weaken my BA resume....? That is not even a degree program?
I have BA in Film about 15 years ago, but worked in other business. Now I am changing my career by preparing CPA exam, which is possible despite my major.
Since, my major was not in accounting, the eligibility prior to the exam requires equivalent credits from accounting and business classes.
So, I am taking those required credits in nearby accredited "community college".
Now, unexpectedly, along the work, I am offered to submit my resume by a company whose field is not related neither with my Art major nor accounting field. It would still value CPA if I already have one though as an ability view point, though.
The company is one that will be most likely swamped by "BAs and over" mostly from good schools.
So... I am worried if "community college" would rather weaken my resume when my BA is in Film...?Answer:
I believe that any education is an asset, no matter where you got it. I don't see any reason to hide what you've been doing lately. The trick is to show the employer how this additional, but unrelated, education has added to your value to an employer.
