Accountancy/Audit is a challenging and rewarding career. Although the work can be hard, the benefits, such as salary, career security and career development prospects, once qualified outweigh the amount of overtime worked and the length of the contract.

Many of my friends now are working with Deloitte in Australia or New Zealand and there are options now to work in the US also. With Deloitte there are many opportunities to transfer to other Deloitte member firms all over the world!
