Accountant Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Accountant in Melbourne:
"Prospect."
Aim high and go beyond. Start or be part of a firm. Never settle for mediocre. Be daring to try.

Accountant in Sydney:
"All Accountants Are Not Tax Accountants."
Tax is boring and with automation, will not be the sole focus of accounting firms. I recommend doing a double degree in IT or Business Administration along with an accounting degree. This will open up more opportunities as accounting moves into the new age, Cloud.
