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.
