Advice for recent grad

Hi all,

I finally completed undergrad and I plan to begin the process of obtaining my CPA license (submitting trsncripts, application and fees, etc.).  I don't have a job waiting for me and applied to many jobs  and a couple of internships thorugh indeed and LinkedIn.  I got one phone interview with a private industry company, but have yet to hear back for a second round interview.

Should I still have hopes of hearing back from any of these places I applied to?

How hard will it be for me to find a job since I am graduating in December and not in Spring?

Should I just wait until the Spring to start applying to places again?

I would prefer to work for a public accounting firm, but at this point I'll take any type of accounting related work.

thanks
