Good morning colleagues. I’m Herbert Brown, a member of the American Marketing Association (AMA) and works part timely in National Human Resources Associations (NHRA). In these organizations, I work in diverse ends in relation to human development. Therefore I think I would be one of the better persons to give a talk on career opportunities and job space in the accounting and finance sector (Hoffmann, 2010). I hold Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from the University of Alabama. How can we select better and marketable career opportunities in this field? How can you find a place in the job market after your graduation in the corporate world?
Preview of My Areas of Focus
I will touch on the following areas in relation to the career talk;
1. The credibility of certification to the various faculties in the organization and other organizations related.
2. Different course/faculty in the organizations related to the subjects we are to cover.
3. Different regularities for the different career opportunities
4. Salary of the career opportunities
5. Finally, I will reveal if any the availability of such careers and where they can be found, that is if there is.
Comparison of the Career Opportunities in the Field
The qualifications and academic credentials required for accounting, marketing, management, finance and economics are comparatively the same and similar in grades. If you are a Higher Diploma degree holder then you ought to be with credit distinction, while university graduates should have second class upper division (Hoffmann, 2010). For an individual taking, information technology, the academic qualifications that you have to meet are second class upper division for those in university while higher diplomas, one need to attain credit pass in the certificate (Brott, 2012).
The lifestyle requirements are set in relation to the work type you undertake organization schedules and distance from the residence to the work place. For these organizations, the accountants, economists and IT technicians work almost at the same schedule. They report to the work place in the morning and work for 8 hours for five days a week. The managers make their own schedules but in relevance to the organization’s desires and mission. They work from Monday to Friday every week unless committed to other critical issues (Hoffmann, 2010).
The salaries are as follows: managers’ 30-35 thousand US$, accountants, economists, marketers earn from 20-30 thousands US$. For references I got the payout document on all the faculties in the organization. This is the latest that was produced on 22nd January, 2014. Currently the faculties are occupied and there are no vacancies in the organization, with the exception of IT technicians who are wanted to reinforce the current who are faced with work load increment (Brott, 2012).
To conclude on the talk, there are issues related to the career opportunities have been speaking about that must be emphasized on. On the working durations of the subject faculties, at times the organizations extend or prolong your working hours. Salaries are increased on merit and work rate, you better be enthusiastic to achieve the best goals in the fields. The organizations at times offer accommodation that is living quarters so that lateness is curbed and fatigue is reduced (Finch, 2010). Allowances may also be mounted on salaries depending on the agreement between one and the organization. In the corporate world, generally, good and smart work rewards and determination and focus to pursue the best is the goal to direct you in what you are to achieve (Brott, 2012). If you can dedicate yourself to your books and get better grades as a reward, who amongst us here will fail to dedicate himself to the opportunity for salary increment, expenses subsidy or gifts?
