How is an accounting degree? Easy or difficult?
An accounting degree gives you much more future freedom than most degrees. In fact, an accounting degree equips you to be able to work throughout your later years, during your child-rearing years, or in conjunction with other life journeys, you may seek to embark upon.
We’ve looked previously on this blog about the different areas of business that an accounting degree can take you to. Whether you want to work for a large multinational, a small charity, a school or any other organisation, all of these need accountants, which means you have a world of opportunities in front of you. But what about when you don’t want the 9-5 anymore?
Both mothers and fathers want to spend more time with their children and less at work, but juggling the two is never easy. Accountancy and bookkeeping, however, don’t mean you need to be employed – many accountants are self-employed and even work from their own home with a few select clients.
Whether you end up specialising in self-assessment, bookkeeping or payroll, it’s possible to do his at home flexibly, taking on as many or as little clients as you wish during the years that your child is at home and then at school. This kind of work means you don’t need to pay for costly childcare and don’t need to worry about who will look after your child when they fall ill.
Retiring at 60 or 65 is most probably a dream for most of us currently working or studying today. However, most people will still want to be winding down or at least work in on their own terms as they get older. An accounting degree equips you for life, enabling you to start up your own at-home accountancy firm at any stage in your life.
Whether you want to study to do something else whilst doing part-time accountancy on the side, or you want to return to accountancy after a career break, your credentials will last forever, giving you the freedom to seek a different career path and return at any time.
An accounting degree gives you so much scope for the opportunity, from working for a large company to running a small part-time business from home. This means it gives you future life freedom, enabling you to follow other dreams or life paths whilst always having a worthwhile skill to fall back on or return to.
