PwC has amazing benefits and receives an award from Working Mother's magazine every year. I am a single mom and am so thankful for all PwC has to offer me in terms of physical and mental health, financial guidance, child care resources, and flexibility.

Accounting and Math are great choices to pursue, but allow an open-mind to other possibilities as well. Below are some websites you can explore for more detail regarding the fields you are currently considering. Best of luck!

If you like working with numbers, you might wonder whether accounting or mathematics is a better college major for you to pursue. Both academic paths have their benefits, and both degrees can lead to a lucrative career. However, there are a lot of differences between the two fields of study. Choosing an accounting degree over a math degree can offer you more career opportunities across a greater range of work settings without the need for advanced or graduate-level studies in math concepts and theories.

More Job Opportunities
Accounting is a great career path for those who value job security. The occupation has historically seen low rates of unemployment, even during tough economic times that result in numerous layoffs and closures in other industries. Having a skilled and reliable accountant is just as important, if not more important, in times of economic turmoil as it is in more profitable times.

Technically, mathematicians are actually seeing a higher rate of growth than accountants. The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) expects jobs for accountants and auditors to increase by 10 percent over a decade. Although this growth rate is faster than average, it’s well below the much faster than average growth rate of 33 percent that the BLS predicted for mathematicians and statisticians. However, accountant is a much larger occupation than mathematician is. There are already 1,397,700 accountants and auditors working across the United States, compared to just 40,300 mathematicians and statisticians. Jobs may be growing three times faster for mathematicians and statisticians than for accountants, but the BLS predicts more than 10 times as many new jobs to open up for accountants as for mathematicians and statisticians.

What Jobs Involve Math?
Almost every job involves math to some extent, though the type of math used in jobs can vary from basic addition and subtraction to complex algebra and inferential statistics. Consider these findings from a study of American workers:1

94 percent of all workers use some sort of math in their jobs.
68 percent use fractions, decimals, and percentages.
More than a third of skilled blue-collar workers such as carpenters and mechanics use basic algebra on the job; 29 percent use geometry and trigonometry.
5 percent of all workers use calculus; skilled trades workers, managers, and technical professionals use it the most.
Math skills are clearly important in many careers, most notably the science, technology, and engineering professions. But such skills also feature prominently in some careers that may not seem like a natural end point for someone with a math degree. Video game developer and computer animator are just two examples of less-obvious jobs that actually use calculus, for instance.

A major in mathematics is a springboard to a wide range of rewarding careers. Whether you focus on theoretical mathematics or applied math, the analytical and quantitative skills you develop in a math program are valuable assets that many employers need. Take a look at some of the types of organizations that hire math majors:

Government agencies and academic research institutes
Engineering firms
Biomedical and health services companies
Insurance agencies
Real estate firms
Medical device manufacturers
Airlines and other transportation service providers
Financial institutions
A lot of math majors spend time looking into how to work for Google or other high-profile companies. After all, such organizations frequently offer great pay and generous, distinctive benefits. But it's worth keeping in mind that many small companies also offer outstanding salaries and perks to those with well-developed problem-solving skills.

At the start of our career endeavor, the first question we should ask ourselves is what value do we bring to our perspective employers. Therefore, we should first fortify ourselves with sound and solid knowledge in the job we attempt to engage in. If we can demonstrate our value and ability as an employee, we will have the bargaining power for good benefit.

Completely agree with Maria, and it should be a question you ask recruiters and interviewers as it is an important factor into your career and personal well-being. There are plenty of other benefits that may be available depending on the career and employer, and they may change over time, including student loan repayment, mobility, perks/discounts, well-being benefits and other rewards.
