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!

Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.
