What is the best way to go about informing a prospective employer that my only work experience has been with my parents' firm?
I have been working at my parents' CPA firm for 5 years. I have a degree in accounting and am currently in the process of getting my CPA. After I have attained my certification I plan on looking for a job in an environment that suites me better than my parents' office but I don't want to be looked over or looked at differently just because my only work experience is from there. I have received a wealth of knowledge and experience that I truly believe wouldn't have been attainable elsewhere. I have been told that it is not necessary to disclose this information but I feel that it will eventually become known and I don't want to be misleading.
