It’s understandable to think that a career in accounting might be too old, too boring or too clichéd for an up-and-comer like yourself. After all, it’s a profession that’s been around for more than 500 years. But maybe you should think again.
The accounting career path is as unique as its history. Filled with twists, turns, confusing credentials and a projected growth of around 16 percent through 2020, this is a field that can provide you with the skills and expertise to become much more than just the boring accountant next door.
