I recently just missed out on a job to do ACA for september 2009 which i was extremely disappointed about. However they have given me two other options 1) a deferral to start in september 2010 or 2) Or go for the CIPFA qualification for 2009 start?
I have agreed to go to the partner interview next wednesday for the CIPFA job so that i can discuss with him what the qualification is all about etc, and to ask any questions which I may have?
Although i did have my heart set on doing ACA so i am unsure what to do?
Is CIPFA as good a qualification as ACA? Will I be restricting myself to the public sector if i do CIPFA? Am i better off just waiting a year to do the jo i wanted in the first place?
Any views or information would be greatly appreciated!
