    lol, i have and trust me, it doesnt.


    Just give them the low down truth. I mean, its one of the worlds dullest jobs - no one actually likes accounting, so just tell them you like the job security and the mediocre pay

    I study acountancy part time, alongside my academic subjects, and it's pretty good as a back up. Yeah it's pretty boring for most people, but there's nothing wrong working with a company and helping them through finance as a career.

    I enjoy the work, as it gives me the sense that I am caring for a company (Well the fake company in the excersises). Working out budgets, ledgers, documents and etc; all give me the responsibility "kick". Also, it helps becoming organised personally, and in a group as well.

    When you become a accountant, you don't just have to work with finance and the documents; you can involve yourself with the company's activites. For example, if it's a theatre you're working for, you can contribute your own ideas on what the comapny could do.

    Hope I could give you some ideas.
