An accounting education can open up a range of career options. Two potential paths include becoming an accountant or auditor.
Accountants are responsible for keeping accurate business records and providing financial advice to their clients, whether they be businesses or individuals. This can involve analyzing financial statements, preparing taxes, as well as monitoring cash flow and budgets among other duties. Auditors also have a role in the accounting sector but focus primarily on evaluating the accuracy of an organization’s financial statement and ensuring that it is compliant with relevant regulations and standards. Both roles require strong analytical skills and knowledge of accounting principles as well as an ability to communicate effectively with clients and colleagues alike.
