I am finishing my PhD in the life sciences this year. I do not want to stay in science. I have been debating switching to an accounting career. Difficulty level: bachelor's degree in mathematics, masters degree in biochemistry, phd in pharmacology. But no accounting coursework or direct experience. Also I will be 34 in November.
How realistic of a switch is this and how long will it take me, best case? Advice for what to start doing NOW to make this as efficient as possible?
