So by this coming spring, i will be in my senior year of college. I am pushing to graduate in the summer, so that means lots of classes. However that is not the point. The point of this thread is for me to gather as much information as possible, so i can make a decison on what i really want to finish my degree in. I am currently working towards a degree in accounting. However, I am taking a finance class this semester as a requirement for business degrees and it's actually getting my attention more then accounting. I do like accounting, but i think finance interests me more since its actually more calculations. I guess you can say calculations geek :crazyeyes:, i like math quite a bit. So if anyone has a degree in finance or a degree in accounting, can you give me info on your job like:
What you do?
What you like or dislike?
Opportunity for growth with each degree?
I've been looking it up lately and I would just like to get a little more info from fellow jeepers. I need to make my decision by Oct. 28th, because i start registeration for next semester. Which the classes will be all accounting or all finance. Thanks for the help everyone. You can also pm me if you dont want people to know what you.

I work with people in finance and accounting on a regular if not daily basis. I've met smart and successful people in both fields. Both offer many opportunities for advancement. Do what interests you. There is nothing worse than working with someone who does not like their job.

Good luck!

I'm a semi-retired math teacher. I believe I can safely say, if you have a fundamental love of mathematics and like/love children of any age, there is a job waiting for you in education. The pay is reasonable, well benefited and there will be time for you to go play in your JK. Check it out. It's not for everyone, but it's worth a look. No matter what you choose, congratulations and best wishes upon graduation.
