  1. That is just a part of accounting field. There’s a lot of careers u could choose from for being an accountant but first u have a attain a certification to advance ur competitors like CPA certification or if u want to work in finance u can choose CFA or both.

    1. in fact, accounting only contains basic math such as addition, subtraction, and division (multiplying often involved in percentages) and yeah, it’s easier since we have calculators!

      Being good at making and organizing spreadsheets is another fundamental skill when you’re an accountant, and you also need to have knowledge about statistics and constructing presentations~

  2. This video does not accurately reflect what Accountants do. Accountants are hired to deal with convoluted rules and to do the record keeping for people. Its not glamorous and we could not tell you whether or not you should sell markers until you’ve sold them for at least 5 years and demonstrated profitability or a trend toward it.
