What are your Career Interests?
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.

I really enjoy the diversity of the work. One day I could be doing a field audit on a chain of car dealerships, the next day I could be advising on UK property management or providing tax planning advice. Being a Chartered Accountant has provided me with a wealth of financial and business knowledge. It has also exposed me to how other businesses are formed and run.
In short, having a Chartered Accountancy designation is like owning a passport to any finance related position, anywhere in the world. Its only limit is your imagination. In my case it has enabled me to become my own boss.
