Being a Business Major there is a lot of competition in the professional world. Due to this fact, I would want to choose a difficult career after college without to many competitors for the job. A Management Accountant is not a very desirable job, but the pay is not that bad starting off and it is technology related. The job would allow me to work 40-50 hour week and doesn’t have too many requirements for the position.
A Management Accountant keeps track of money spent and made by the companies for which they network. The type of work I would be qualified to do would be in an office, generally working a standard 40- hour week. Other types of accountants, such as a tax accountant, work long hours during the tax season, from January to April. Accountants working for the government and public companies travel to audit other companies or branches of their own company. I would analyze and communicate financial information for various entities such as companies, individual clients, and the government. The fundamental tasks of the occupation are preparing, analyzing, and verifying financial documents in order to provide my clients detailed and accurate information. Some of the business’s I've found recently with openings for this position are the Georgia Ports Authority, Bank of America, Citigroup, and Exxon Mobil.
Most accountants have a college degree in accounting. Public accountants have to take a special test as well, resulting in a certification. Public accountants also must have a special license from the State in which they live. Some employers want accountants who have a master's degree in business or accounting. Most employers want accountants who know quite a bit about computers. Previous experience in a summer or part-time internship is also a plus. Since I’m interested in math, I should also be good at math, and have good analytical skills. I would also need to write well, so that I could tell my clients about my findings.
