Vision Project Vision Project Presentation Transcript

  • Vision Project November 2011 Caitlin
  • So, I’m pretty much an average 18- year-old..
  • I’m not very good at this whole powerpoint thing, View slide
  • I love spending time with my friends, View slide
  • listening to music,
  • and spending way too much time onFacebook, Twitter, and watching MTV
  • I love Disney movies, Starbucks,Criminal Minds, and I actually like reading…
  • …I re-read the Harry Potter booksevery Christmas (even though I should have grown out of that ages ago)
  • I played rugby in high school, but I’mnot really the sports-playing type (we did make it to the 2009 provincials, though!)
  • Some of my biggest accomplishments are: Graduating from high school and getting into college,
  • Saving enough money to go to Europe in 2010 with my high school…
  • And China in 2011
  • I’m an extremely organized, goal- oriented person.I’m pretty decent at math, and I like to think I work well with other people
  • Because of these things, my strongest Holland groups wereConventional, Social, and Investigative
  • This basically says that I learn bestwhen presented with concrete stepsand facts that I can write down, andwhen I am given the opportunity tolearn by doing as well as observing.
  • I think I would best suit a job where I could work both independently and with others, indoors with stable daytime work hours.
  • Because of all these things, and thefact that I think I would fit well in anoffice setting, I think I would make a pretty decent accountant.
  • It’s a stable job that’s always in demand, and involves working bothindependently and with coworkers and clients. The fact that I’m organized and good at math doesn’t hurt, either.
  • Since accountants are needed for every business, they are always in demand. The average salary for a full-timeaccountant is $66,000 a year, which is not bad at all!
  • Becoming an accountant isa lot of work, though.
  • Through BCIT or SFU it takes at least 4 years to get a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting, and that’s just the start.
  • After the Bachelors degree, I will have to complete a training program that has been approved by the Society of Certified General Accountants, which involves several years of on-the-jobtraining. Only after doing all this (so at least 6 years later), will I become officially certified as a CGA… It’ll eventually be worth it
  • Wherever I end upin the future, the most importantthing to me is that I stay close to my family…
  • …and my best friend, who are themost important people in my life
  • I’m hoping to attend BCIT starting September 2012
  • and find a decent-paying job to support me through college (beingsupervisor at Dairy Queen isn’t exactly cutting it).
  • In the years to come I hope to become a successful and independent person, who’s financially stable with a great social life. Even though that’spretty far down the line, I think I’ve got a fairly good start.
  • the end.
