Q: What is it like working as an Accountant?

May 2014
"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.

"Stick It Out, It Gets Better."
I learned that school only prepares you for a very small and technical part of the career. Upon graduation, that's when the real learning begins and it gets exciting when it comes time to expand and perfect your knowledge in a specific industry, so choose wisely.

Pros: The corporate culture is very informal. I do not have to take responsibility for anything.
Cons: I do not have to take responsibility for anything and so does no one else. It's like a bus without a driver.
August 2014
"Making numbers tell me the truth."
Pros: Numbers tell me everything I need to know.
Cons: Unstructured upper management.
