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!

Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.
