I advise the following:
  1. What subjects do you like in school? If you like figures - then this may be the one for you!
  2. Are you a good communicator? If so, you will likely make a good Registered Tax Consultant. Good communication is vital - written and verbal. 
  3. Get some work experience - try to work in an accountant's office, preferably a tax department if the office is large enough. 
  4. Only pursue a career as a Registered Tax Consultant if you are prepared to study after college/university to gain an additional qualification. It's well worth it!

Administrative?
Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.
