Generally speaking, accountants are needed in every working company – banks, financial companies, manufacturing companies, consultant companies, law firms, oil companies and so on; the list is endless. The role of an accountant is as important as the company itself, regardless of the industry. Accountants will monitor both the inflow and outflow of money in and out of the company. They keep track of expenses and income, amongst many other things.
One important thing to keep in mind, however, is that whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well. Start with the end in mind. It is best to graduate with first class or second class upper as the minimum, these two classes of degree give you a leverage. Graduating with a worthy degree makes it easy for you forge ahead, to pursue your career goals.
Strive hard. It will not be very easy, but will be worth it in the end.
