A new intern recently reached out to me to ask some questions about my career path. One of the organizations we work with (LEAD Program) was hoping to have testimonials from people in the accounting field. Specifically, they wanted to increase exposure to the youth about how attractive the profession can be.
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you know that LEAD was the reason I pursued accounting in the first place (I talked about that briefly here).
The email I got asked a couple questions and was looking for just a short blurb, but one thing inspired me to expand on my initial thoughts. He asked how I transitioned from accountant to advisor. While I didn’t see the two as different things before, the question made me reconsider my position. You can read what I concluded here:
Friendzone to Endzone: How to Go From Accountant To Advisor
If you find yourself wondering how to make this transition in your career, this article should help but be careful what you wish for. The work you have to do to get there (and stay there) will not always be in your comfort zone.
I originally emailed this post out to readers but figured I would let visitors here know it exists in case they would find the information useful.
