Overview

Have you ever thought about what it would really be like to be an accountant? What kind of training do you need? What will it be like on the job? What kind of jobs can you get? Is accounting the right career for you? This book is intended to answer those questions and many more.
Many people go into the field of accounting without fully understanding the demands of the career. Many also spend four or more years studying accounting, only to find that it is not the career for them, or that the field will not fully accept them due to elements in their previous life.
There is nothing worse than watching someone complete a full accounting course of study, only to find out that the DUI that they got as an 18-year old prevents them from getting the job they just spent 6 years training for!
Accounting is a highly competitive field. The decisions you make before you begin your career can be just as important, if not more so, than the decisions you make at the beginning of your career. The school you study at, the courses you take, your grades, and even your extra-curricular activities can determine whether you start your career at a top agency or at a smaller firm. The larger and more prestigious the firm you begin your career at, the greater your opportunities, and your salary, can be for the remainder of your accounting career.
Before you consider an accounting career, read the FAQs in this book, and their answers. This book can help you decide if an accounting career is right for you, and if so, how to best prepare yourself for success.
