Accounting Career Exploration

When looking back at the presentation the part that I am most proud of was how I condensed the information into short easy to understand bites. I’m not proud of how long it took me to get it done. I kept procrastinating until the last minute and ended up with a lot of work in the end. I am proud of how I did it in an efficient manner though.

The project itself wasn’t the hard part for me, but reflecting on it in this paper is. I often don’t put enough effort into large projects like these and this leads to me not being proud of anything that I did. I didn’t feel relieved that I finished the project just dread that I need to do this reflection. Other than that it was finding motivation and time to do it.

This project connects with the Character C the most because it is directly researching a potential career path and deciding if it’s meant for me. It required me to think about what I wanted to do after school and if accounting was for me. An example of this would be me having to look for potential schools that I could go to in order to get a degree. A case could also be made for critical thinking because it required me to think about what would make a good accountant.

At the end of the day what did I learn? I learnt that maybe Accounting isn’t the career for me. I do not share the same interests that are needed in this career. If I were to do this project again I’d spend more time out of class working on the project. I’d also put more effort into the slides which I did very quickly without much thought.
