Entry Level Accounting Jobs to Get on CFO Track

Hey everyone. I am working on finishing up my BBA. I am 34.... I know I am late to college, but I was just uninterested in my 20s.

The more I work in business school the more I am noticing that I like the finance side of business better. I would like to learn more about getting on the CFO track for a company. I have been doing some research on Google, but would love to hear feedback from everyone.

I know not everyone gets to be a CFO, but I like to set my goals high to help me stay motivated.

I think I would like to look for some entry level accounting jobs to get going. While working at this job, I could work on getting my MBA with a focus in accounting.

What jobs do you guys think I should look for to get on track?

Thanks everyone.
