What ways can I land my dream job?
I'm currently a freshman with a major in Accounting. My dream job is to work in a bank. What steps or advice can I take into achieving a career as an accountant? #career-path #career-planning #accounting
While in college, I encourage you to make sure you study hard and keep your grades up. There is strong competition in certain entry level fields, and a good GPA will help you to be a strong candidate. Also, get involved in extracurricular activities related to your interests. These can be related to accounting/banking, but there is also the opportunity to follow some of your other interests while showing leadership, time management, or other qualities that will be desirable for a future employer.
Best of luck!
Great question! I think it's awesome that you are interested in a career in accounting/banking. The best way to start off is to keep up good grades especially in your accounting and business classes. This comes with hard work and a lot of studying. I also suggest you make relationships with your professors in that field. Your professors may be able to introduce you or connect you to people in the banking field. This can lead to internship opportunities over the summers if you have time.
I would also spend some time preparing your resume. You can think about the courses you have taken, and extracurricular activities you are involved in. Make sure you have someone proofread this resume before you send it out. It is also helpful to create a LinkedIn page, so potential employers can search for you based on their needs and your strengths.
Keep an open mind to other opportunities and learn as much as you can while you are in school! Good luck :)
