Positives: Easy to understand, straight forward and there are plenty of jobs in the industry
Negatives: Very broad so far
My advice to future students is: There are so many different areas in commerce there’s bound to be something you like
Positives: as a first year student i have access to peer mentors and i find that is a great help. also i have found volunteering is a great way to meet and engage with other peers throughout the university
Negatives: my schedule, i would prefer if i had access to evening courses
My advice to future students: time management is key. i found as long as i was prepared everything became so much easier.
Positives: I need to stand out in a competitive market. Community service, volunteering, mentoring, membership in club or society, leadership positions (secretary, treasurer, president etc.) are all viewed very favourably by employers. I will take every opportunity to attend any CPA or Chartered Accountants (Australia and New Zealand) event – meet with employers, learn to sell myself and find out about potential career paths. Try to have a goal or vision of what I would like to be doing in five years’ time. Review frequently the CPA or Chartered Accountants (Australia and New Zealand) home pages for events or information regarding the accounting profession. I have to talk to as many employers and practicing accountants as I can. Sometimes I still need to look for opportunities and not wait for things to last minutes to happen. Continue to be positive!
