Angelica | future accountant

Everyone has at least thought of what they wanted, or plan to achieve in the future. People have different interests in life and should consider this in choosing a career, because the most important thing to remember is that you should find a job that you will love to do.

Being an accountant is the career that most interests me, because I've always had a love for math. Math is the one subject I am really good at, and I find it really easy and enjoyable to do. The type of education or training I will need for this job is a minimum of four years of a bachelor's degree in accounting. Accountants prepare, analyze, and check the accuracy of financial information. You can work in environments like the government, non-profit organizations, and private businesses. All companies depend on accountants to keep their business running well.

The steps I took to learn about this career were advice and information from my family and knowledge from my school classes. My aunt and both of my parents are in this field and they recommended this career. I researched about accounting, and the information convinced me to take this job in the future. Also, I visited my parents at work and observed the life of an accountant, which made me feel comfortable on what I will be expecting in the future. In conclusion, planning on what I will be doing in the near future will help me achieve my goal and become successful at life.
