To CPA or NOT to CPA? Public vs Private?

What if you could run an experiment?

Take twins, with identical DNA, life experiences, education, GPAs, majors, internships, and careers as accountants. Then have twin A become a CPA and go public, and have twin B go private.

Follow Becky Steiger and Norma Steiger on their separate journeys in the private and public accounting worlds! Together they will compare and contrast their experiences and goals in the accounting profession.

Why listen to Accounting Twins Podcast?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Love It!
Love following the path of these two.  They are sharp ladies with a bright future.  Awesome podcast for other accounting students or even recruiters trying to understand the current generation of graduates.  Rooting for success for Norma and Becky!
- Jennifer Johnson, CPA, Associate Professor of Instruction at University of Texas at Dallas

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Great Insight
Totally real and honest insight into the mind of accounting students. The future for both these ladies is bright no matter their path.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Very Relatable
I enjoy listening because what y'all are saying is so relatable. I am a semester ahead of y'all in that I finished my undergrad this past December. Having the two completely different pathways that y'all chose and why, gives a larger perspective on the options to pursue in the real world of accounting.
