I personally know a number of very successful accountants in Malaysia. There are in fact a lot of job openings for the field of accountancy. It is undeniably a good career that offers a bright future to those who practise it. Most accountants are needed in the tax and health care areas.
The art of accounting is highly essential in any types of organization. Although chances of getting recruited are high, some companies are very particular in choosing their candidates; some even require their candidates to have a Masters Degree in Accounting or Masters Degree in Business Administration with specialization in accounting.
You may think that accountants are people who deal with numbers in the office only –not necessarily true. The job scope of accountants today is broadening and there are high demands for candidates who can perform beyond their field of expertise. Many big companies today are in search of candidates who are multilingual speakers and can perform satisfactory sales. Furthermore, there are more accountants pursuing business with the knowledge that have in accounting. Most of these accountants are hired temps. Successful accountants on the other hand are usually offered the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) or Chief Exceutive Officer (CEO) position.
With a CPA credential too, an accountant can benefit in the competitive industries, business especially. This qualification enables an accountant to fill tax returns for corporations.
