Position: Governmental Accountant
This paper must be written in APA format. The thing that is unique about this paper is that you will be required to add an opinion of the accounting profession in your conclusion. Each paper should include the use of 4 sources; one of those sources needs to be an interview with a professional in the concentration of accounting that you choose.
- The accounting profession lives by the 3 E’s, (education, exam, and experience), research what type of education and how much of education is required to hold that position, on-the-job experience (how much formal training or experience is required to hold this position), and professional license(s) it would take to work in your chosen concentration (what exam(s) you have to pass to hold that position). Specifically relate your search to Idaho, USA as much as possible, you can use online resources.
- Research the national average salary for this position. Do not limit yourself to entry level salaries get a range from entry level through the management/partner level of your chosen profession. No tables, just words.
- Interview a professional that holds this position (which I attached as a file. Interview with John Smooth). Compare and contrast what your interview subject said about education, exams, and experience.
In the conclusion, make sure add opinion – “I”, repeat thesis and answer to the thesis.
My thesis should be something about – governmental accounting is a good start after I graduate college, or it has a better work-life balance and great benefits, or you can choose your own.
Also, I want to put some accent on is not exactly what you know but who you know that will help you to find a good job (it can be part of the thesis maybe?).
