Hi, does anyone know if CPA Australia is better than CPA singapore? tks
If you are planning to work in Australia, of course CPA Australia will be better than CPA Singapore. But then again, you can always get CPA Australia first then apply for CPA Singapore. There is a mutual recognition agreement between these 2 bodies.

you should continue looking as well as check back

most likely they are still considering if they have hired enough that's all
hmm tried calling ystd.. but the automated phone says "user unavailable at the moment."

Are we able to call her direct line or does that mean that she is not around in Singapore??

Thanks!

I'm currently reviewing one of the local audit firm's work... Can't tell you about their working hours, but what I know is that their methodology is definitely a far cry as compared to the big 4's.

should be varies from company to company.

my gf's sister works in one and she knocks off on time too (because her boss is very particular about work life balance and time for the family)
