There are several accountancy options for those who want to build a career in this field. From the most basic entry level accounting job to a career as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), you can develop particular accounting skills that can lead to bigger and better opportunities in this area of expertise. You can start with an entry level position and work your way up the corporate ladder or you can get certifications and work in different areas of this industry. Whichever path you choose, the opportunities are endless as long as you’ve got the skills and you put in the hard work to get to where you want in the accountancy field.

What You Can Do and Become

The requirements for entering the accounting field aren’t that complicated; however, once you start climbing the corporate ladder, you may have to take additional courses of pass certification exams in order to move forward in your career. One of the best ways to get into accountancy is to get a bachelor’s degree in accounting or other business and finance related courses. You can start as a bookkeeper or audit clerk and work your way up to becoming a business analyst or management accountant. After you’ve gotten experience in this field, you may want to take a certification exam to be a CPA. Certified Public Accountants are always in demand and there are a lot of accountancy options for those with this certification. As a CPA, you can work for accounting firms and private companies as an auditor or financial controller and work your way up to becoming a financial director. You can also opt to work for the government as an auditor or work closely with law enforcement agencies like the FBI as a forensic accountant and help solve white collar crimes. If you prefer working alone, you can also become an independent CPA and work with individuals or corporation to prepare their income tax returns.

Becoming an accountant isn’t just about crunching numbers and filing other people’s income tax returns. In fact, there is no limit to what you can achieve as an accountant. You can take any road you want and choose any of the available accountancy options on your way to the career of your dreams.
