    Although I don't have a masters degree, I am a licensed CPA and CFE and have 3+ years of public accounting experience wth a "Big4" firm auditing both public and private company financial statements. Although it doesn't specifically state whether or not public accounting experience qualifies as "investigative" experience, I believe there is a strong argument that it would, especially since auditors are required to perform SAS 99 procedures as part of a GAAS audit. Not to mention the audit itselt is "investigative" by design.

    Perhaps a current IRS-CI can comment with respect to the above statements.

    It is mind-boggling to know that the posting will allow a recent or soon to be college grad with a masters degree in acctg. to have a foot in the door with absolutely no relevant experience and yet refuse to consider those who have a B.A. in acctg. with multiple years of "real-world" experience (although not necessarily "investigative" experience) complemented with professional certifications.

    Key number is 15 hours of accounting.

    That is the real test.

    If you have a MA, MS, MBA, JD or PhD, you need the 15 hours.

    Good luck, it’s a cool job.

    Better of having a CPA cert or accounting degree with some real world/gov experience

    A law degree may not be enough... Applicants also need 15 semester hour credits in accounting and 9 semester hour credits in related fields.
