I am essentially in the same boat. Did you ever figure anything out? I have an accounting degree and I feel like I may be flipping burgers pretty quickly. I am thinking I may have to go back to school and go to law school or something to get a job. Maybe move to Atlanta? I have no idea.
Where did you get your accounting degree and what was your GPA? I am surprised that you are struggling to find an entry level acctg position...that industry and market us actually strong right now.
What tools are you using in your job search? Hopefully it is not Monster and the classifieds.....terrible places.
Are you in Charlotte? If so, shoot me a pm and I will give you some contacts at various finance search firms in town.
