My Career As An Accountants

1121 Words 5 Pages
My career goal is to work as an accountant for a Big Four company. The job market is expected to grow by 11% over the next 10 years. This means that there will be many job opportunities for accountants, so the competition will not be too bad. However, for larger firms, there will be a lot of competition though because everyone wants those jobs. The economy will also have a major effect on accounting jobs. If the economy continues to grow, there will be more accountants needed in order to go over financial documents. They will also have more job opportunities since there will be more money to pay the salaries of accountants (BLS, 2015).
Every state has multiple accountants, so there will be job opportunities wherever they go. For example, Massachusetts and New York have between 27,570-144,540 accountants since they are more populated states. In states like Montana and Wyoming, they have anywhere between 480-4,480 accountants since they are less populated states and have less of a need for accountants.

It is something that I like doing, so it makes it one of my top strengths. My weaknesses would only affect me here when needing to be in meetings with other accountants and higher level managers and having to discuss any financial statements. In the area of finance, my strengths would be being able to analyze numbers and manage money effectively. My weaknesses would be being able to invest in different companies and stocks since I have never done anything like that before.
Overall, my strengths and weaknesses will definitely affect where I end up getting a job. For my potential job, I would need to be good with math and have interpersonal skills in order to succeed. Being that I have both of those qualities, I believe that I have the potential to be successful as an accountant in a Big Four
