Pauline Said:Who do you file a complaint to against a university?
We Answered:Call a politician that deals with that University and say you always vote for them and you need their help
Gilbert Said:what's a possible career choice for me?
We Answered:Dont settle.
Can you take a variety of introductory courses at the university to get a taste of what you might like to pursue? Its ok not to have a definite plan on what your career will look like in your final year. Just dont enter into a program because you are settling for something-I did that and it took me more time and money to switch into what I really wanted (I didnt want to major in education since teachers dont make much money but damn I loved and knew it was for me when I took an introductory course)
Lena Said:What should I do to prepare myself for a career in Video Game Design?
We Answered:Check out http://www.gamecareers.com.au
Thats the most asked question, "Can i be a game designer right off the bat?"
The answer is yes, just like any job. It's not what you know, but who you know. Another thing is it is very difficult to become a game designer off the bat. Usually most developers like to see experience, however some companies take on junior game designers. If you have the determination and confidence a company might take a risk.
Your best bet however is to enter in as a programmer and prove yourself. A little hard work is all it needs ;)
If you want more answers go to that website and post on the forum, one of the experts on the site can help you out.
Rhonda Said:Is there an Accountant that is willing to answer these interview questions for me?
We Answered:1) What kind of accountant are you ? What is a typical workday like for you?
Corporate accountant. Reconcile GL accounts, prepare financial reports, deal with brokers, bankers, etc. Update schedules. Special projects, prepare for end of month.
2) How much money can I expect to make when I first start out in this career?
Hard to say in this economy. I'm a bit out of touch on salaries, I think graduates get anything from less than 40K to over 60K depending on type of firm, location, education, etc.
3) Whats the best and worst thing about your job?
Best is when year end regulatory report is finished. Feeling of accomplishment.
Worst is when you are dealing with a complex issue that you don't fully understand, or when upper management manipulates the numbers to make them look good, or when a co-worker is uncooperative or ignorant.
4) Do you really enjoy your job? would you enter this career again if you were starting over today?
Sometimes yes, sometimes no (see #3). Yes, I would do it again because my skills are analytical.
5) What are your working conditions like?
Could be better. Not much vacation. I don't work too much overtime (some accountants work tremendous hours).
6) What are the benefits like in this job? Is it just medical, retirement, and paid vacation, or does it include other kinds of benefits like bonuses, car allowance, ect.?
My employer has a decent medical plan. We have 401k, but no pension. (some companies have both). Paid vacation, but not as much as most companies. We used to have modest bonuses, but not now due to the economy and company losing money. Car allowance for some big shots, not me.
7) What are the hours like? Will I have time for my family, for example?
About 40 hours most weeks, more at month end, and much more at year end. Some accountants, especially if you work for a public firm will work 60 or more hours per week often.
8) Are there dangers associated with this job?
Hi stress sometimes affects health. No imminent danger.
9) Is it difficult to get a job in this field? Is there alot of competition for the jobs that are available.
These days getting a job is tough. May help to lower expectations.
10) Does this job require you to update your skills by taking additional coursework? If so , does the company pay for that Type of professional development?
Seminars, and training needed to keep up with changing regulations. This is paid by company. If I want to take a course, usually I pay.
11) What advice would yu give to someone like me to better prepare me for the challenges of this career?
Understand that accounting is much more than numbers. Dealing with rules and regulations are difficult. But most of all, you will need people skills to deal with bosses, co-workers, customers, etc.
