I got into accounting and finance at the University of Washington while majoring in journalism and I am so glad I did. I love the intellectual challenge and the opportunity to learn from industry experts.
While this might not seem like the ideal career path, I have found that accounting and finance is not the be-all and end-all of the careers I’ve pursued. I have found that some of my most rewarding career experiences have been with the people I’ve worked with (i.e. accounting and finance majors). For example, I have always found a lot of value in listening to other people’s stories, taking their perspectives, and trying to empathize with their struggles.
As a sophomore we recently worked with a company offering a new opportunity for a student majoring in Accounting and Finance. I was really excited to work with them as I felt the program was really new and I wanted to learn everything I could about the field of accounting and finance. My biggest takeaway was from the instructor, Joe, that he truly understood the field and that he really wanted to get to know the students as individuals.
The first time we worked with Joe, we were assigned to the same accounting department and he’d taken a few weeks to work through the fundamentals of accounting, to understand the basics of the field. We were quite a bit more aware of the differences between the field and the field of finance, which is the field of finance.
And as I mentioned in last week’s blog, we had a great time working with Joe, he was a pleasure to work with, and very professional in the classroom. I think that for the most part, I was able to get the most out of Joe because of the fact that he had a really good understanding of the fundamentals, which is something I think we all want from our instructors.
One of the things we were really interested in when we were discussing the basics (and I mean the fundamentals) of finance was about how accounting and finance interact. They are different, but in many ways they are the same. Accounting is the process of recording, calculating, and reporting on the financial activity of a company. Finance is the process of making money. It’s important to both accounting and finance because they both are important in our society.
Accounting is something that all companies need to do. So it’s a very crucial part of being a company, but some companies are better at it than others. Accountants are the people who do the accounting for companies and they are the ones who do the day-to-day business. Finance is the people in charge of the financial decisions and the financial decisions in our society are made by people in charge of the finances.
Accountants and finance are two very important roles in our society, and they are two very different things. The reason why they are separate is because some people have the skills to do one and some people have the skills to do the other, so they need to be separate fields.
The same is true for accounting. Accounting is the scientific study of books and the financial decisions made by the people who make the books and the financial decisions. Finance is the ability to make money from the books and the financial decisions made by the people who make the books and the financial decisions. And both of these are important, but being able to do the accounting and finance jobs are totally different things.
How do you make money from books? The answers to these questions are pretty simple: Make money from the money you have, and then use it to buy a house, hire a lawyer, buy a car, and do everything else.
