Accountant Advice

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

Accountant in Sydney:
"Dedication."
You need to be dedicated to your job to hold the position of an accountant. Never stop learning and keep up to date with changes in legislation, it is forever changing and you never know everything. Take no ones word and always verify things for yourself.

Accountant in Sydney:
"Tenure and prospects of remuneration progression."
Work hard, be accurate, anticipate.

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.
