Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

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!

Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.
