So You Wanna Be an Accountant…………

Thinking about Accounting School because your relative/neighbor is a Accountant? Think Again…………

First of all, what is it about your relative/neighbor the accountant that makes you want to follow him into his profession? Is it the money? The prestige? Do you even know whether this person is happy practicing accountancy? Have you asked him lately? More importantly, have you ever followed this person through a typical day – or even better, a typical week? Ever asked this person what he likes least about accountancy, or about how much time he spends in auditing compared to how much time he spends with his nose buried in the books? Ever asked how long it took him to get a “practicing certficate”, or how many hours a week he had to work to get a practicing certificate?

These are revealing questions that may help you explore a career in accountancy more realistically. Ask them before you romanticize your relative, the accountant.
