What type of training/education is appropriate for this position?
To succeed in the Accounting field, it is best to obtain a Bachelor's degree in Accounting or at least a business related field. While it is possible to gain understanding and training on the job, a formal education will provide fundamental knowledge that will be relevant in any industry. Beneficial career experience in the tax or audit field is common for post-graduates.
What is one piece of advice you would give to current high school students?
Treat every person you encounter, student, teacher, administrator, even custodian, with respect, even if you have a disagreement. You never know when your paths may cross again or when you may rely on someone in the future.
What is one thing you wished you knew about your career while you were still in high school?
I would have liked to learn about office etiquette while in school, such as ethical issues and human resources. I relied on my employer to learn these skills.
When you can give, give. It isn't necessarily money, but often your time, advice or a listening ear is the most important to someone else.
