I would like a career in accounting; however, I do not want to deal with taxes. What are my options?
Here's a link if you want more details on each: https://www.accountingtools.com/articles/what-are-the-types-of-accounting.html
I personally focus in the Risk Assurance area, which consists of Process Assurance (PA) and Internal Auditing (IA). Both of these focus on mitigating risk within an organization, but PA focuses more on financial systems and IT management, whereas IA focuses on the organization as a whole. I chose this rote because I also didn't want to do taxes, this job requires a lot of travel (which is something I wanted), and I am also able to learn a lot about the company in order to help them (I love to help others and learn new things).
Jasmin recommends the following next steps:
- I suggest continuing asking questions you may have to your teachers, mentors, and Career Village. Feel free to search the internet as well. While searching the internet, one thing to keep an eye out for are shadow days that companies have. These days allow you to personally learn more about a field.
