Accounting is to business as a doctor is to your health. If you want a career in business, the best way to achieve this is by studying the accounting discipline. In Albury Wodonga, we are fortunate to have two universities that offer tertiary qualifications in accounting. This means that local high school leavers can choose to stay local and start a rewarding career that has excellent long term employment prospects.
Working for an accounting firm is called public practice as compared to working as a commercial accountant for an individual business. Both career paths offer diversity and the roles can be quite different depending upon the size of the practice or the business you are working for.
Contrary to what many people think, working as an accountant involves variety. It also requires attention to detail and excellent relationship building skills. Accountancy is really a people business. At Johnsons MME we provide a wide range of services to our clients and so rarely is one day the same as the previous one. We offer a supportive and nurturing environment because we want our people to be the best they can be.
Once you've completed your undergraduate qualification and it's time to step your career up to the next level, we continue to provide mentoring, training, development and financial support during your CA or CPA program to maximise your learning. Nowadays there is not a lot of difference between the CA and CPA programs and the choice really is yours as to which one you decide to take.
