I was unsure of where to post this but I figured this was the best place for it. I have my associates in business administration, I'm getting my undergrad degree in Finance with a minor in Accounting and once I get that done I will be going back to quickly finish up my undergrad degree in Accounting that I started previously. Now I know everyone says you should get the CPA exam but I am going to be very honest about this and that I don't really think I could do it as anyone who knows about the CPA exam that it is very difficult with a low pass rate. However I have noticed that the Certifed Internal Auditor exam is available to take and I'm not it is easy but it's more of a fit for me.
 
Now with all that being said how is my chance of honestly getting some kind of a job with an accounting degree and being a certified internal auditor? Thanks for all advice and opinions!

I suggest you consider a financial intern program with the Navy.  You could work with the Naval Audit Service or some otherNavy  finance office upon completion.  It is great program.
