Accounting is the backbone of the financial market, so be prepared to answer questions about your technical experience and detail-oriented work ethic. Employers may ask you to answer an analytical accounting question, tell a story that highlights your Excel skills, or solve a math brain teaser. As you move up in accounting, be aware that employers often expect more advanced degrees, which may include a Masters or CPA (Certified Public Accountant) certification.
What is a mutual fund?
Mutual funds allow you to put your money together with other investors to buy stocks or bonds. This is a good option for smaller investors to diversify investments.
