Always be understanding of everyone. You never know what that person is going through and by you noticing how they're feeling might brighten up their day.
What is one thing you wished you knew about your career while you were still in high school?
I wish I knew the different industries and sub-branches of all facets of accounting.

These sub-branches could include the private or public sector, IRS Auditor or General Auditor, and A Federal and State Accountant/Analyst.
In your career, the people around you can have a great influence on how your life turns out. If you surround yourself with people who are always grinding, you will be forced to work hard as well.
